Mother and Wife of Australian Residents Sexually Assaulted in China via ”Torture Kit”

A former lecturer at Zhejiang Sci-Tech University, Ms. Jiang Yongqin, was held in a secret detention facility and sexually assaulted by a torture expert from the Jilin Province Public Security Bureau simply because she practices Falun Gong, a meditation practice rooted in the Buddhist faith.

During the process, a “trained expert” and his assistant from the Special Disciplinary Office (SDO) applied the torture kit to sexually abuse Jiang until she collapsed. The SDO is a new secret agency under the Jilin Province Public Security Bureau, created to persecute and “re-educate” Falun Gong practitioners. The SDO expert told her, “There’s are certain restrictions on using the kit; but, when it comes to Falun Gong, we use it whenever we like.”

Jiang’s family in Australia has since called for her release in front of the Chinese Consulate in Melbourne on August 15, 2022. Her two daughter and husband currently live in Melbourne.

Jiang Yongqin’s husband, Mr. Xiong, stated at the press conference, “As her husband, when an insider told me how my wife was tortured, it felt like someone stabbed me in the chest. The Chinese regime has repeatedly harassed, arrested, detained, and tortured this good teacher, good wife, and good mother. Our family never had one day of peace.”

Abducted from Home

Jiang, 53, of Jilin City was arbitrarily arrested after group of officers broke into her home at 7:30 a.m. on June 12, 2022 and arrested her. Her cell phone and computer were confiscated. Her family members were also seized by the police and briefly detained at the police station.

Ms. Jiang was first held at the Xin’an Police Station. She was transferred to a hotel on the second day and monitored by the police around the clock. She was interrogated twice during the time. 

On the afternoon of July 7 or 8, the police covered Ms. Jiang’s head with a black hood, plugged her ears, and took her to a secret facility. Four men were present, including a torture expert from the Jilin Province Public Security Bureau, his assistant Li, and two men Tang and Lu from the Jilin City Domestic Security Office.

The four CCP officers handcuffed Ms. Jiang and demanded to know the password to her hard drive. Because she refused to give up her computer password and resisted their attempts to renounce her faith, two other Jilin national security policemen surnamed Tang and Lu joined the two SDO officers and also began to torture Jiang.

The police force-fed wasabi water through her nose and inserted lit cigarettes right after. As they were inserting the cigarette into her nose, it broke. The police left half of the cigarette in her nasal cavity, which she eventually coughed out.

After the first round of torture, the police then began to sexually assault her. They lifted her shirt. The torture expert then ordered the police to touch her chest. 

After the police did it, the expert then used a special massager to stimulate her chest. Next, the expert forced Ms. Jiang to take off her pants. When her pants were halfway down, the police found she was menstruating. The expert claimed that the torture had the best effect during menstruation and ordered the police to continue. Ms. Jiang almost collapsed and was in deep despair. She gave in and was forced to cooperate with the police in the interrogation.

Before the expert left, he threatened that if Ms. Jiang didn’t cooperate with them, he would go through things in his “torture kit” every day, which had aphrodisiacs, toothpicks, metal instruments, drug bottles, and electrical wires.

In the evening, Ms. Jiang was taken to the Xin’an Police Station and completed another deposition. She was transferred to the Shulan Detention Center on July 21. Her lawyer has started to work on her case.
