A Brief Report of the Incident:

 

On Feb. 9, 2001, Ms. Wu Xuzhu went to Beijing to appeal against the persecution of Falun Gong and was detained. She was returned to the Yonghong police station in Jiamusi city. On Feb.14, 2001, threatened with imprisonment, loss of their jobs, and heavy fines by Sun Dongli (Director of CCDC) and vice-director Li Yonggang, her family was forced to send Ms. Wu to Jiamusi Mental Hospital. Without any examination, the doctors said she was suffering from “depression”. The doctors have never discussed their diagnosis or treatment plan with Ms. Wu or her family. To force her to comply, the hospital staff tied her to the bed and beat her. They stuffed drugs into her mouth, and the nurses monitored her all the time, not leaving until she took the drugs as ordered. After giving her an intravenous drip for eight days, the staff switched to oral pills. The drug is a variety of Chlorpromazine. While receiving the drug intravenously, she felt thirsty and irritable. Her tongue did not function well, and her legs were so weak she could not walk. She became easily agitated, had muscle spasms in her legs, and her whole body was in pain. After taking the oral drugs, she felt weak and limp, and now suffers from memory loss, lethargy, and chronic headaches. On March 13, 2001, she was released because she had no money to pay the bill. The staff refused to give her a diagnosis or her treatment record.
