To cover-up a death caused by a forced demolition, police went to extremes to abscond with the victim’s corpse from the family in the hospital's parking lot in eastern China’s Yantai City, Shandong Province. Currently, relatives do not know the whereabouts of the victim’s body.
The victim’s name was Sun Jianjun. His younger brother told The Epoch Times, “My brother was severely beaten on November 25, and he was in critical condition until the morning of November 27. The doctor said his body temperature and blood pressure recovered to normal, but then again, my family were notified that evening at 11:15 p.m. that he passed away after another medical rescue attempt. When I arrived at the hospital, I saw six police in the ward.”
“After the police left around 2:30 a.m. on November 28, I discovered seven police vehicles parked under the hospital building, and another ten arrived about 9:00 a.m. We guessed that police planned to remove my brother’s body, so we called all our relatives to come and lift my brother’s body and walked out the hospital together. Nearly a hundred police suddenly came up, pulled away my family members and relatives, and loaded my brother’s body in a car with plate “Luf8477” and disappeared. Up until now, we still don’t know where my brother’s body is.”
According to The Epoch Times reporter’s investigation, the Yiantan Municipal Police Bureau started a forced demolition with the excuse of building police family apartments. Before the demolition, the developer agreed to compensate the Sun family 1.8 million yuan, but later they cut the compensation to only one-third of the agreed upon amount.
Around 1:00 a.m. on November 25, around 40 people came to Sun’s house to carry out the forced demolition. They first set fire to one of the houses. When the family rushed out to fight the fire, they broke into the house and beat the family; three family members were severely injured and admitted to the hospital.
After the beating, demolition personnel razed the houses using an excavator.
According to the Sun family, they have resisted the forced demolition eight times since this past April, although they had repeatedly reported this to the authorities and local media, nothing happened. Their houses have finally been destroyed plus the cost of one of the son’s lives.
