Deng Guojun Tortured to Death for Having Falun Gong Materials  
Print  E-mail 

Ms. Deng Guojun, female, 60, was a Falun Gong practitioner from Chenzhou City, Hunan Province.  She worked at a collective unit under the jurisdiction of the Beihu District. Ms. Deng had been arrested many times, and was well known for her resistance to brainwashing. In August 2002, Lei Baoliang, a fellow Falun Gong practitioner, who was being followed by the authorities, went to visit Ms. Deng. During their visit, the police entered Ms. Deng’s house and searched it illegally. Because they found Falun Gong materials, they took Ms. Deng from her home, illegally detained her, and placed her in custody at the Chenzhou City No. 2 Detention Center. Ms. Deng was illegally detained for more than a year in a dark and damp detention center, where she was given terrible food, and was forced to work long hours. On the evening of October 19, 2003, Ms. Deng died unexpectedly. Sources said that policemen from the “610 Office” physically beat her to death. Her body was covered with plastic bags and tied up. When the plastic bag that covered her face was removed, her face appeared to be gaunt and wax yellow, and there was blood at the corners of her mouth. After her death on October 19, prison guards transported her body to the Minghua Hospital. Ms Deng's body was cremated without her family being notified and so they had no opportunity to see her remains.

At one o'clock in the afternoon after the cremation, the "610 Office" and policemen collected the ashes and hastily left, therefore, Ms. Deng's family and friends who wanted to pay their last respects could not fulfill their wishes.
