A Brief Report of the Incidents:


Ankang Psychiatric Hospital at Tangshan city, Hebei province has been abusing and torturing many Falun Gong practitioners for the past two years. They have been inhumanly treating them in many ways. Followings are several cases of Falun Gong practitioners who had been forcibly injected with drugs that are meant for use only for people with drug addictions or mentally ill patients. Those practitioners were also physically tortured by the doctors in this hospital.


In January of 2001, Liang Zhiqin was tortured with an electric baton by a guard named Wang Xuelu in Kaiping Labor Camp. To protest against the illegal detention, she went on a hunger strike with several dozen practitioners. Then she was sent to the mental hospital. There she was twice forcibly administered drugs that are used only for people with drug addiction and mental illness while her hands and legs were tied to a bed. Immediately after the injection, she experienced extreme pains in her heart and had heart failure. She struggled painfully while being tied to the bed. She felt weak in her limbs for several days and could not even do simple daily chores. Since she was injected with the drug, she had lost her consciousness twice due to heart failure. When he heard this reaction, the director of a department in the hospital said: “If you do the hunger strike again, I will inject you with another type of drug that will make you suffer even more”. Liang Zhiqin was also been tortured in other ways in Ankang Psychiatric Hospital. She was hung in the hallway in such a way that only her tiptoes could barely touch the floor just because she explained what Falun Gong is to others. When she was hung up by only one hand for long time, she lost consciousness. Her pupils became dilated and she lost control of her bladder.


Ni Yingqin was handcuffed in the hallway for several hours because doctors in Ankang Psychiatric Hospital suspected her of doing Falun Gong excises. She was slapped on her face several times by one doctor and threatened by another doctor. Then they injected her with a drug. After the injection, she twitched violently and was in agony. Then she felt drowsy and sleepy and could not walk steadily for several days after this incident.


Dong Shugui and Zhao Huixia were sent to Ankang Psychiatric Hospital after several days hunger strike at Tangshan city No.1 Detention Center. There they heard a doctor said: “Give both of them a shot first”. Immediately after being injected with a drug they became restless and anxious. Their limbs twitched and became numb. They felt very weak and could not walk more than a few steps a time. Their minds became hazy and they had trouble going to sleep. Dong Shugui was also handcuffed for several hours on the fourteenth day of her hunger strike for doing Falun Gong exercises.


Several other practitioners, Ma Jinhua, Shao Liyan, and Zhang Shujuan were also injected with this drug. They were also tortured by being tied on beds for several days. They have been tortured both physically and mentally by the doctors in the Ankang Psychiatric Hospital.


Li Linong was illegally sent to Ankang Hospital as a mental patient by her work employer for not giving up Falun Gong. She was detained in the hospital for two months and was abused both mentally and physically there. Everyday the hospital forced her to take drugs that were supposedly used only for people with mental disorders or drug addictions. She was also tied up in a bed for three days. After taking or being injected with the drugs, Li Linong oftentimes felt hazy in her mind, dull, and nervous, could not walk without the help of others, and could not speak clearly.
