A Student Became Disabled after the Torture  
Print  E-mail 

 

Mr. Wang Qiang is a student at the Dalian Foreign Language Institute in Dalian City, Liaoning Province.

 

In 1999, Mr. Wang Qiang went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong three times. The first two times, he was sent back to Dalian City and illegally detained for 15 days. In addition, the Dalian Foreign Language Institute extorted 28,000 Yuan from him altogether. The third time, he was arrested in Beijing, Mr. Wang was taken back by the Donggong City Police Department. Personnel from the Xinxing District in Donggang City extorted another 2000 Yuan from him. He was later sentenced to one year of forced labor. During that time, he was inhumanly tortured and abused by the guards in the Dandong City Forced Labor Camp. The guards used tools to pry open Mr. Wang's mouth to force feed him while he was on a hunger strike protesting the persecution. As a result, Wang Qiang lost one tooth.

 

Mr. Wang was lifted by several people and then thrown to the floor. They grabbed his head and slammed it against the wall many times. Mr. Wang was punched and kicked numerous times. One of his legs was broken, and he could not straighten it. After half a year of torture in the forced labor camp, Mr. Wang was in critical condition. In order to evade responsibility for this maltreatment, the labor camp authorities released him on bail for medical treatment. His family had already spent 70,000 Yuan on his medical bills.

 

Mr. Wang has completely lost the ability to take care of himself and has to rely upon others for his care. He is now in a despondent state and does not respond to any of his relatives. He swallows if fed, but does not ask for anything. His parents take care of all his urination and defecation. Mr. Wang can lie down or sit when asked to do so. His left hand is clenched all the time and nobody can loosen it. His right hand is clenched too, and he can only move his thumb and index finger.
