PROMINENT CHINESE LAWYER PUBLICIZES HORRIFIC DETAILS OF FALUN GONG TORTURE
NEW YORK (FDI)— China’s renowned civil rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng has published a third open letter to Chinese President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao condemning the brutal persecution of Falun Gong. The letter discloses details of cases he personally investigated over the last several weeks amidst mounting pressure from the Chinese Communist Party to stop his work. One of the cases he uncovered is of a mother and son who were tortured to death, just days apart, in the same detention center: “Every time they were tortured, the mother and son could hear each other’s screams,” Gao wrote. Gao also detailed brutal sexual torture that he found pervasive among both men and women. “[Torturers] tied many knots on a thick rope and pulled it back and forth in a sawing motion across [Ms. Wang’s] vagina. Her entire lower body swelled up. The head police then ordered inmates to jab her swollen vagina with the thorny end of a broken mop stick. This torture caused Ms. Wang’s vagina to bleed profusely.” One victim told Gao “After one night’s torture, my face was swollen to several times the original size and my whole body was drenched in blood…I was carried to the Changchun City police department. There were many small cells, each with a tiger bench [torture devise] inside. There were female [Falun Gong] practitioners on every tiger bench. Most of them had fainted, with their lower bodies naked or with only a cloth covering the body.” Gao, who was on the New York Times’ front page on December 13 (news), remains under tight watch by Chinese police.

“THIS IS ARGENTINA NOT COMMUNIST CHINA!” CHINESE THUGS BEAT PROTESTERS
BUENOS AIRES (FDI)—In front of Argentine TV, a group of Chinese men beat Falun Gong practitioners who were holding a peaceful demonstration across the street from Argentina’s National Congress building in Buenos Aires. One of the Chinese thugs ran up to a practitioner who was giving an interview explaining why they were protesting and kicked her in the neck right in front of the TV camera. All but one of the Falun Gong practitioners attacked were native Argentines. The assailants were part of an entourage escourting Luo Gan, a senior Communist Party official. Luo, who is one of the chief perpetrators of the torture and killing of Falun Gong practitioners in China, had been served with a lawsuit in Argentina a day earlier. Local Argentines tried to protect the practitioners, yelling at the thugs: “This is Argentina not communist China!”

Apart from a 14-year-old girl who was released, they are currently being held at the Bangkok immigration detention center.
