She was detained in the police department for one day, then transferred to the local Development Zone and detained for seven days without any due legal process. In a room on the third storey of Yanjiao Branch Police Station, she was brutally beaten and tortured by police officer Yang Xizhong. She states: He shocked me twice with an electric baton. He hit my shoulder(s) with his fists, yanked my hair and forced me to kneel. I was also forced to squat for about two hours. Yang said, "If I throw you out of the third storey, are you still going to practice? I'll fine you 5,000 Yuan [about US$625]. If you don't have the money, I'll tear down your house." I was aching all over from the beatings and couldn't sleep for over ten days. I also suffered great psychological stress.
During her detention, the police department chief instigated policeman Yang Xizhong, saying, "Beat her hard; call the Railroad Bureau to put pressure on them."
She was fined by Yanjiao's Development Zone Government as listed below:
1. Yanjiao Development Zone fined her 10,000 Yuan [about US$1,250], which was deducted from her husband's monthly salary [The average monthly salary is 500.00 Yuan].
2. Sanhe City Police Department fined her 5,000 Yuan, [about US$625] giving no receipt.
In addition, her husband spent over 20,000 Yuan [about US$2,500] arranging for my release on bail.
