From NTD 11/01/2011

The Associated Press published an exclusive story on Monday about the torture the disappeared Chinese rights lawyer, Gao Zhisheng has suffered at the hands of plainclothes police.

 

The story is based on an interview an AP reporter had with Gao on April 2010 at a Beijing teahouse.

Gao tells of plainclothes police stripping him naked, tying him up with belts and plastic bags, hitting him with handguns in holsters, and beating him up repeatedly.

He told the AP reporter, there was no way to recount the degree of cruelty.

Police also tied wet towels around his face to induce suffocation, and fed him rotten cabbage.

The celebrated defender of Falun Gong practitioners, House Christians, and other persecuted groups in China had not wanted the details of the interview published unless he and his family had successfully escaped from China, or if he should go missing again.

Shortly after giving the interview, Gao was again arrested. He has been missing for more than eight months.
