Description:

 

Mr. Ding Wen, male, about 30 years old, a resident of Shiyan City, Hubei Province.  In 2001, Mr. Ding Wen had been lawlessly detained in Zhangwan District Brainwashing Class, Shiyan City, Hubei Province because he refused to give up the practice of Falun Gong. Class guards repeatedly beat Mr. Ding during his detention. He had also been forced to do numerous sit-ups, running, and stand at attention in the cold weather of that winter. These caused excruciating stomach cramps that led to vomiting during the daily tortures. On February 19, 2001, Mr. Ding went on a hunger strike to protest the mistreatments and illegal detention he suffered. Huang Chengjun and Fu Baoan were in charge of beating the Falun Gong practitioners in the class. Yan Jundong, Xia Baozhong and Min Tianxiang, those in command of the brainwashing class from Zhangwan district police station, gave the order to take the male practitioners to the second floor and beat them severely in the restroom. The three officials hit and kicked the practitioners in their abdomens. Mr. Ding began bleeding internally from the beating. In addition, Mr. Ding and other practitioners were not allowed to sleep, and their hands were cuffed from behind to the water pipe in the restroom for two days. In late March 2001, while enduring yet another beating, Mr. Ding was pushed closer and closer to a window and finally forced out of it. As a result, the lower part of his back was severely injured, instead sending him to hospital, the guards sent him back his work unit.

 

At the end of August 2001, while still convalescing in his hometown, police from the Hongwei sub-district forced Mr. Ding back into detention. In September 2001, because one of his roommates tried to escape from the brainwashing class. The guards tortured Mr. Ding mercilessly in a solitary confinement cell to force him to confess what he knew. They forced him to join his hands behind his back; one going over his shoulder down and the other from the bottom upwards, beat him relentlessly, force-fed him alcohol until intoxicated [Note: Falun Dafa practitioners abstain from alcohol, tobacco and other vices], and then force-fed him vinegar. The torture continued for 5 days. Police then had Mr. Ding jailed at a police station for a month, and returned him to the brainwashing class where he suffered further tortures. Mr. Ding succumbed to the torture on January 14, 2002. His body was surreptitiously cremated on January 16, 2002. The police, in an effort to keep the news from being made public, have threatened witnesses not to reveal the truth. Even his wife, Ms. Chen Rongmei, did not know he had died. His wife remains in a brainwashing class at the local Second Automobile Company.
