Ms. Gao Shunqin, 44, is a Falun Gong practitioner who lives in the Wuchang District, Wuhan City, Hubei Province. She was held at the Yangyuan Brainwashing Centre for three months in 2004 and was injected with an unknown drug that was supposed to "break her energy," as an official working at the centre had claimed.

Ms. Gao Shunqin was arrested on February 26th, 2004, and held at the No. 1 Wuhan City Detention Centre. Those involved in her arrest include officers Zhou Jie and Wu XX from the Wuchang District Police Department, and Yu Guoxuan and Hu Zongsu from Yangyuan Brainwashing Centre at the Wuchang District 610 Office1.

A month later, on March 16th, Ms. Gao Shunqin was transferred from Wuchang District Police Department to the Yangyuan Brainwashing Centre. Wuhan City 610 Office head Hu Shaobin, and brainwashing centre head Chen Qiyi, along with Yu Guoxuan, Hu Shanping and Hu Zongsu, were involved in abusing her at the brainwashing centre. Two guards and two temporary staff members took turn watching her. During daytime they forcibly tried to brainwash her, and at night they punished her by forcing her to stand straight for long hours. If she sat down or squatted from exhaustion they immediately forced her back to a standing position. They tormented her in this way for two days and two nights. More than ten perpetrators were arranged to brainwash her with lies, deceit and phoney facts.

One morning, around April 20th, brainwashing centre head Hu Shaobin ordered guards to bring Gao Shunqin to his office. When she tried to tell him Falun Gong facts and details of the persecution, he hypocritically agreed with what she said. However, that afternoon she was injected with unknown drugs under duress, and subjected to tortures for the following three days.

At around 2:30 p.m. the same, staff person Hu Shanping, abusers Gao Jinrong, Xu Dexi, Zhou Zhiying, and Che Jianhua exchanged visual signals. Together they dragged Gao Shunqin and held her against a conference desk. Then a woman doctor surnamed Wang XX immediately gave her an injection.

Ms. Gao noticed several people including Hu Shaobin, Chen Qiyi, and Yu Guoxuan, standing outside of the door of the conference room with pleasant facial expressions. She asked what kind of injection she was just given. Chen Qiyi said, "It is used to break your energy." Abuser Gao Jinrong said, "It is a nutritional supplement." Ms. Gao asked the doctor what it was. The doctor answered she didn't know. Ms. Gao questioned, "How can you say you don't know what you just injected me with? I'm not sick. Why did you give me the injection?" The doctor pointed to those standing outside and said, "They ordered me to do so." Ms. Gao said, "As a doctor, you should follow professional ethics." Hu Shaobin and others came and threatened her. Hu said, "We have all kinds of ways to deal with you."

At around 4:00 p.m., Ms. Gao was locked into a dark, small room. She was forced to stand straight, with arms stretched out, while being handcuffed to a fixed object. The poison injection and the handcuffing made her dizzy, her heartbeat became irregular, and she felt generally ill. She was not let down until midnight when she was allowed to use the toilet. After that, she was again handcuffed and locked to a window frame in the big conference room until 8:00 a.m. the next morning.

Since Ms. Gao Shunqin refused to be brainwashed, brainwashing centre head Chen Qiyi ordered her tortured again. She was hung with both hands cuffed to a window frame in the dinning hall - from 9:00 a.m. to midnight, about 16 hours. She asked the guard several times to tell the doctor on duty that she was not well. The doctor simply ignored her. Only after she lost consciousness did they finally remove her handcuffs.

Gao Shunqin is not the only one who was subjected to torture at the Yangyuan Brainwashing Centre. Falun Gong practitioners Zhu Bangfu, Liu Limin and Jinhao were also mistreated there.
