Sydney(FDI)- Since March 1st, the deaths of 53 Falun Gong practitioners from torture and mistreatment in the hands of Chinese authorities have been reported. This is the largest number of confirmed deaths to be reported in a three-week time period since the persecution began in July 1999.
For more than three years, the Falun Dafa Information Center has received — on a daily basis — dozens of reports of arbitrary detention, forced-labor, extortion, torture, death and other forms of persecution against Falun Gong practitioners in China.
When Dafa practitioners lost consciousness from being beaten, guards instigated the inmates to pour water mixed with instant noodle seasoning and hot pepper into their noses.
In the 12 days from the first to the 12th of March, reports of 38 deaths due to persecution have come from China. None of these practitioners had the benefit of any legal procedures.
