An Example of Chinese Torture: Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse

The inhuman and sadistic nature of the persecution is exemplified in the sexual abuse suffered by Falun Gong practitioners at the hand of Chinese authorities. The forms of sexual torture include rape, molestation, shocking genitals with electric batons, raping Falun Gong practitioners with foreign objects (including toilet brushes and batons), shoving hot peppers into vaginas, pinching genitals or nipples even to the point of tearing them off, kicking genitals, piercing nipples with hot irons, stripping practitioners naked and beating them, forcefully administering drugs that cause menstruation to cease, and more. The victims of such sexual abuse include young, unmarried women and seniors.

“There has been sexual torture, including stripping 18 women of their clothes and forcing them into the jail cells of male criminal offenders to be gang-raped. Some women have been subjected to forced, late-term abortions. Many so-called “policemen” in China have exhibited the most base and inexcusable behaviour. One said: “Don’t you say you practice tolerance? I will see if you can tolerate it when I rape you!” They have ripped off our clothes in public and shocked us with electric batons. Iron wire has been used to pierce our nipples. They have sexually violated our bodies using eggplants, toothbrushes, and plastic water bottles. In one Female Labour Camp located in Jilin Province, the police inserted hot pepper powder into women’s vaginas in order to force them to give up their belief and practice of Falun Dafa. They have forced electric stun batons into female practitioners’ vaginas to torture and shock them...”
– Excerpt from a letter from female practitioners in China

Genitals shocked with electric batons for several hours

On June 4, 2001, Ms. Li Yinping was visiting a fellow practitioner’s home in Majia Village of Shouguang City, Weifang region when police from the Shouguang Police Station arrested her and all other Falun Gong practitioners who were there. They were all detained at the Sunji Police station, although no legitimate criminal charges were brought against them.

On the afternoon of June 6, 2001, Ms. Li, along with the other detained Falun Gong practitioners, requested unconditional release. The policemen dragged Ms. Li into the hallway and beat her with a rubber baton. After drinking alcohol, five to six policemen began another round of torture. They slapped her face, twisted one of her arms behind her back, grabbed her hair and pulled her head back, hit her all over her body with rubber batons, and shocked her with electric batons. The policemen stripped Ms. Li of all of her clothing to inflict more pain by beating her unprotected skin. After beating her, the policemen chained her to an “iron chair.” After taking a break, later on in the evening, the director of the detention center, Team Leader Wang, and other guards took turns shocking her genitals with electric batons. Her whole body was shaking, and had turned dark purple and black. She suffered severe pain, and lost consciousness several times. Each time, the guards revived her by pouring cold water on her so they could shock her again. One of the officers threatened to rape and kill her. They continued to shock her with the batons even after she began spitting up blood. This torture lasted for several hours. Ms. Li was left chained to the iron chair, and she kept vomiting all night.

By early the next morning, June 7, 2001, Ms. Li had lost consciousness and her pulse was faint. She died later that day.

Stripped naked and gang-raped by male inmates

“In October 2000 prison guards in the Masanjia prison in Shenyang, Liaoning province, allegedly stripped 18 female Falun Dafa practitioners and put them into cells containing male convicted criminals. It is reported that Luo Gan, a high-ranking Communist Party official, was aware of the incident. ... It is reported that since October 1999, more than 1,500 Falun Dafa practitioners have been detained in the Masanjia labour education camp in Liaoning province. Practitioners are reportedly forced to denounce Falun Dafa. People who refuse to do so are allegedly subjected to physical abuse, shocked with electric batons, detained in solitary confinement and assigned intensive labour. The electric batons are used to shock the breasts and genitals of the female practitioners.”

– Report of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences; UN document number E/CN.4/2001/73/Add.1

Young woman suffers mental breakdown following untold torture and rape

NEW YORK (FDI) â€“ Thirty-two-year-old Ms. Zhu Xia cries, laughs, and often bangs on doors and windows madly. She soils her clothing uncontrollably, and has frequent hallucinations, tossing and turning restlessly amidst unseen enemies.

At night Zhu often throws her arms around her head defensively, screaming “Are you going to rape me?”

She has removed her blankets to sleep in the cotton fibers of her mattress and often curses “those terrible men,” muttering she “can’t take it anymore.”

This is not the young woman her family members described as “healthy and vibrant” before the police took her away because she practices Falun Gong.

Like hundreds of thousands â€“ perhaps millions â€“ of others in China, Zhu was detained by Chinese authorities and sent to brainwashing classes in order to force her to renounce Falun Gong.

She was held at the Pi County Brainwashing Center in Xinjin County, Sichuan Province.

On April 2, 2004, Pi Country authorities released Zhu. According to her family, Zhu’s mental and physical well-being had been devastated, and she had suffered a complete mental breakdown.

Zhu is no longer able to take care of herself, and is under the care of her mother.

The exact details of what Zhu went through in the Pi Country Brainwashing Center are unknown, although family members say her mental state and behavior leave little doubt she suffered untold torture and was repeatedly raped.

Thousands of eye-witnesses and victims have documented severe and systematic tortures used on Falun Gong practitioners in order to force them to renounce their beliefs. Such methods include shocks with electric batons often in sensitive areas such as the genitals, anus and mouth, violent beatings with pipes, burning with hot irons, rape and gang rape.

At the Dalian forced labor camp, numerous reports say women detainees have been hung spread-eagle from the ceiling as sticks and pepper oil are shoved into their vaginas â€“ a torture technique known as “hip-splitting.” The men are stripped naked and shocked with electric batons shortly after being doused with water to intensify the electric currents.

Men stripped naked and shocked with cattle prods; women tied spread-eagle, raped with mops and toilet brushes

Since 1999, terror and violence have permeated the Dalian Forced Labour Camp, as authorities implement orders to “transform” Falun Gong practitioners.

Mr. Chu Hui was tortured with beatings and cattle prod shocks from 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. the next morning. The torturers used the cattle prods all over his body, including inserting them into his anus. Mr. Chu passed out several times during the torture.

Mr. Liu Yonglai was stripped of his clothes, gagged with a cloth, and thrown to the ground while officers shocked him with 4-5 cattle prods. They doused him with water to intensify the electric currents, and especially targeted sensitive areas of the body, such as the genitalia, neck, mouth, etc.. The smell of burning flesh filled the room and both sides of Mr. Liu’s mouth sustained tear wounds.

Women have also suffered savage forms of sexual assault as labour camp authorities sought to “re-educate” them.

60-year-old Ms. Fu Shuying was tied up spread-eagle, while a torturer violently inserted a long rod into her vagina, causing severe inflammations and infections.

27-year-old Ms. Chen Hui and 30-year-old Ms. Sun Yan were also tied up in a spread-eagle position as torturers repeatedly thrust long rods into their vaginas, causing bleeding.

Three other women had chili pepper sauce shoved into their vaginas, causing extreme pain, while in three other cases toilet and shoe brushes were used, causing severe vaginal bleeding.

According to witnesses, the torturers frequently tell the practitioners “we represent the government in transforming you” or “it means nothing if you die here.”

Hundreds of reports from Falun Gong practitioners in China quote police and labour camp officials as saying they are under orders that “no method is too extreme” to force Falun Gong practitioners to renounce their beliefs, and those who are killed amidst the torture “should be reported as suicides.”

Prison guard rapes 28-year-old university student

On the evening of May 13, 2003, Ms. Wei Xingyan, a graduate student from Chongqing University, was caught possessing balloons and banners printed with messages about Falun Gong. She was arrested and placed in the Baihelin detention center without trial. A male police officer ordered two inmates to strip her naked, then forced her to the floor and raped her. Since news of her story was exposed outside of China, her school and the local authorities have attempted to erase her identity, denying that she exists. Her current whereabouts are unknown.

Authorities order criminal inmates to strip, beat, and sexually abuse Ms. Liu Runling

“Liu Runling, aged 38, resident of Hebei Province, was reportedly arrested on 28 September 2001 and detained at the No. 1 Detention Centre, where she remains. In January 2002, guards allegedly ordered several inmates to torture Ms. Liu because she refused to renounce Falun Gong. According to reports, they took her to a bathroom, where she was stripped naked and beaten. They reportedly inserted hair and used tissues into her vagina, and pierced her with needles for 40 minutes. It is reported that this left her covered with wounds and needle holes, and both her breasts allegedly turned black.”

– Report of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences; UN document number E/CN.4/2003/75/Add.2

Yan Juying

“On 6 October 2000, Falun Gong practitioner Yan Juying from Yanjiao, Sanhe city, Hebei province, went to Tiananmen Square to appeal on behalf of Falun Gong. She was arrested and sent back to Yanjiao police station. It is reported that before she got out of the car, the police captain, Yang Xizhong, started to kick her, beat her, pull her hair, slap her face and kick her private parts. Then he lifted her up and violently threw her to the ground. He allegedly beat her on the buttocks several hundred times with a wooden rod, whipped her numerous times, subjected her to electric shocks all over her body, used a slipper to slap her face, put an electric baton in her mouth, spat on her face and stomped on her heels. He allegedly threatened to splash her body with boiling water. When Yan Juying refused an order to take off her clothes, Yang Xizhong allegedly threatened to find some workers to rape her. He then sexually molested her. After some time Yang Xizhong recorded the interrogation and beat Yan Juying again. That night, Yan Juying was sent to the town government hall to attend the ‘transformation class.’”

A female practitioner raped by a police officer on the street

On the evening of May 14, 2001, a female Falun Gong practitioner from Beijing was beaten and raped on the street by a patrolling plainclothes police officer. The above photo was taken nine days later after the incident.

“Finally, I was beaten to the ground and was not able to get up. Two of my front teeth were knocked out; several places on my head were hurt; my body was swollen and turned purple; my bones felt like they were falling apart. He then hit my right ear and temple hard with a stick and I lost consciousness. At this moment he pulled me under a bridge, tore my pants apart, and raped me. After that, he inserted a plastic baton forcefully into my vagina, and rode on my body. When I regained my strength and was able to shout, I shouted with all the strength I had: ‘Help! Catch this hooligan!’ The man seemed to have no fear. Finally, he got on his bicycle and rode away in a hurry, leaving me behind.”

Powder..Patch..Ball FIRE!

What persecution. Where is the MSM in showing these pictures and stories?

The Chinese government must be very afraid of their movement.

No this is sick and horrible.

Where is Amnesty International?

Oh that's right, they are only interested in criticizing the United States

Where is the UN?

Oh that's right, Kofi and company are too busy counting their food for oil money.

This was very hard to read. Where is the outrage from all those Human Rights organizations like the one suing Secretary Rumsfeld for "alleged" abuses - the ones he had nothing to do with. Where is the United Nations and the ACLU on this truly criminal abuse of innocent people engaged in a philosophical practice. Why is China not removed from MFN list?

Send this article to any Human Rights organization you can find and suggest they do something serious about this abuse in China rather than punch at shadows and the other inane complaints just for politics.

Only the evil USA is capable of these atrocities, so the "human rights" organizations only protest our actions.

God help us all.

Yo, Hold on and slow down a second guys. The comments I read before this post indicate a wholesale acceptance and lapping up of this stuff. Look at that first "picture" the drawing at the top of the article. Doesn't that stike you as the sort of quality image from the "Police Gazette" of the 1950's?

I don't believe any of this for a minute. And even if there is a grain of truth buried in here somewhere, the wanton evil and bloodlust it describes is in no way characteristic of any Chinese I have ever met (and I know a lot of them).

The picture of the young lady with the massive bruises could have been caused by anything (like a motorcycle accident for example).

I'm not saying that the Chinese are angels, they are clearly not. But this is propagandist bull$hit and I'm surprised that the usually critical thinkers at FR aren't using their well honed thinking skills to analyze this.

Sarcasm on/
That's it lets outsource the prisoners at Gitmo to these folks!
/Sarcasm off

Seriously sick individuals. I know it's a power thing but I just never have been able to understand how a man can get off by raping a woman. Especially these sickos that rape 70 and 80 year old grandma or kids. These people need to be Dawrined out of the gene pool!

I believe it, on an incident specific level. China is a huge country, with a population that large there will be bad apples.

Presenting only the bad apples is obviously propogandist bull and not reflective of the big picture, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen.

If you go looking for it hard enough, you can find wanton evil and bloodlust in police officers right here. Look up Abner Louima or Lester Siler. Behavior like that isn't characteristic of any American I've ever met, but it happens.

Look at that first "picture"......from a Chinese comic book or one of their cheap hand outs?

I went to the ( Falun Dafa page) and they seem to concur with this report. I would really like to know if indeed there is truth to this – as written, it is beyond awful.

Re #10

There were many nice Russians in Soviet Union. That does not imply that no brutalities committed in Lubyanka or no gulag exist.

Falun Gong is feared by Chinese regime because it perceives the sect can endanger the regime's hold on power.

China has its totalitarian apparatus of oppression. It will not hesitate to use the apparatus to subversive individuals.

If you base your opinion of Chinese regime on Chinese you meet in America, you are truly naive.

I agree that on an individual level, one can find all manner of horrors in any large country (see Jeffry Dahmer). But this article implies that these practises are institutionalized standard operating procedures intended to terrorize the populace in to sheep like compliance with dictatorial rule. That is what I do not believe. The Chinese system can be harsh, and it can be corrupt, but in my experience, it is also attempts to be fair (after its own form), and it attempts to govern with the rule of law. It has a long way to go, but sanctioned behaviour like this, if it exists at all, exists in defiance of the actual will of the political leaders.

China is emerging, it is a fascinating thing to see. I was talking with a young lady from Guangzhou just a few weeks ago who was complaining that she wasn't "free" because she had to go to work every day. That's not much of a complaint.

Re #13

I do not think it is the problem of isolated police brutalities. Chinese regime is particularly brutal on this sect. In Chinese history, pseudo-religious sects are usually the ones which brought down dynasties. It is about regime survival.

Besides, don't you remember what Chinese regime did to demonstrators in Tienanmen Square, in 1989? They ran over people using tanks. Didn't you see the crushed remains of a demonstrator? That was the first time I saw a human meat pie.

I base my assessment of the Chinese based on my travels in China. Most Chinese I know are in China, not the US.

Re #18

Yeah, I doubt Chinese in China will tell you something like this casually. People do not complain about the state in front of foreigners. If you are a common thief, you may not get this kind of treatment. However, this is the anti-state crime.

I think it is somewhat extreme but I believe it is an accurate portrayal of the Chinese leaders/police, I believe you mislead yourself to believe otherwise. After Tienanmen Square how could we believe otherwise?
