Gao Feng (pseudonym), male, 49 years old, resident of the eastern province of Jiangsu, is a Christian of The Church of Almighty God (CAG). He was arrested by the CCP police in January 2021 merely for his faith in Almighty God. To extort the information about the CAG from him, the police subjected him to torture.
On January 15, 2021, when Gao Feng visited a CAG Christian, he was arrested by the police officers who stayed there for watchout, and later taken to the local police station for interrogation. The police subjected him to torture in order to extort the information about the CAG. They burned his beard with a lighter, inserted a penholder between his fingers and squeezed them hard until the penholder burst, pinched his inner thighs, and beat his feet with their shoes. As Gao refused to tell, the police then cuffed his hands behind his back, hung him up in the air with a rope and pushed his body back and forth. Afterward, the police cuffed his hands in front of him, and tied the rope to his legs and pulled it backward to suspend his body in the air. It was a cold winter, but the police still stripped all his pants and made him sit naked on big ice cubes, piled small ice cubes around his legs and feet, and poured cold water on him. Gao Feng was tortured in agony.
The interrogation ended with no result. Gao Feng was detained for ten days before being released. With sequelae from torture, Gao Feng’s arms still feel numb and swollen now.
