Mr. Zhang Dongsheng Tortured to Death in 2005; His Wife in Forced Labour Camp

Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Zhang Dongsheng, 49, a farmer, lived in Xinglong village, Beijing. In 2001, Mr. Zhang and his wife Zhang Guijin were both arrested and detained for ten months in a Hanzhuang brainwashing centre and were forced to endure enormous mental pressures.

One month after being released from the brainwashing centre, Mr. Zhang was transferred to Hanzhuang Mental Hospital. His family had three thousand yuan1 extorted from them for "treatments." On his release from the hospital, Mr. Zhang's reflexes were slow, and neither of his legs functioned normally. In the spring of 2003, policemen came to his door to harass him again, causing Mr. Zhang to be hospitalised. The doctor at the hospital said that there were dark shadows on his organs. His family spent ten thousand yuan, but he was unable to be cured and did not fully recover.

One week after he returned home from the hospital, Mr. Zhang started exhibiting symptoms of a stroke. Policemen came to his door to harass him twice more.

Mr. Zhang Dongsheng died on June 18th, 2005. His wife Zhang Guijin does not want to give up cultivation. She wrote a solemn declaration that all of her words and actions that the pressure of the persecution forced her to say or do against Dafa are null and void and that they were not from the bottom of her heart. On August 23rd, 2005, she was arrested again and sentenced to 18 months of forced labour.

After 9:30 a.m. on July 20th, 2006, Yukouo Township Police Station Head Zhang Peihua (male) and Pinggu District 610 Office worker Wang Xiaohua led about seven policemen to arrest four Falun Dafa practitioners from their homes, including Mr. Cui Ruyi, Ms. Zhang Chunhong, Ms. Liu Guifen, and Mr. Chen Youwen. At 9 a.m. on August 3rd, 2006, practitioner Mr. Mao Zhenjiang was also arrested at his home in Duoyukou Township. These five practitioners are all being held in Pinggu District Detention Centre.
