Crimes Committed Against Falun Gong by the Prison System in Hebei Province

April 05, 2002 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) In order to reach their goal of forcing Falun Gong practitioners to renounce their belief, not long ago the judicial system in Hebei Province held a meeting discussing how to persecute Falun Gong practitioners held in the prisons.

More than one hundred and ten Falun Gong practitioners are currently detained in six prisons in Hebei Province: Baoding Prison, the Shijazhuang Northern Suburban No. 4 Prison, Jidong (Tangshan) Prison, Shijazhuang Prison, Hebei Baoding Mancheng Taihang Prison and Chengde Prison.

These prison systems are extremely cruel. They often transfer practitioners to different prisons so that their families do not know where they are detained. They repeatedly conduct brainwashing sessions and persecute practitioners in order to force them to give up their belief. Most practitioners are still not allowed to have regular family visits. For example, female practitioner Liang Yiening's family once went to Taihang Prison, Hebei Province to visit her. A policewoman refused permission for a visit. Liang is held in seclusion. No one who knows her is allowed to contact her. She is monitored 24 hours a day by seven or eight inmates who take turns watching her. This is an infringement of her personal human rights.

The prison staff underwent a new round of brainwashing activities. They asked a few people who had renounced their beliefs to preach their wrong thinking in order to confuse practitioners. These people influenced practitioners who had not studied the Fa thoroughly. We hope practitioners who read this news pay special attention to fellow practitioners in prison as they are facing evil persecution every minute. Let's send forth righteous thoughts at the top of each hour to eliminate all evil forces that are persecuting Falun Gong practitioners and express our support to practitioners in prisons.

The conditions in Chengde prison are very severe. Its staff members often beat and curse Falun Gong practitioners. They ask inmates to monitor and persecute Falun Gong practitioners as well. Dingyan, a female practitioner, was tortured to death after being transferred from the Taihang Prison to Chengde Prison. Not long ago, in early December of 2001, a policewoman at Chengde Prison chased a female practitioner down stairs and beat her to death. The practitioner's family members felt that her death was suspicious and insisted on appealing to higher authorities. They sued that policewoman. Since this murder had so much impact, in order to subdue the anger of the public, the policewoman has been jailed for her crime and awaits sentencing. The other two people who were responsible for this murder were removed from their positions. This tells us that if we insist on justice, evil will definitely be defeated.

Due to the exposure of the crimes of killing Dingyan and another female practitioner (name unknown), the evil prison staff became very nervous and closed down the place where practitioners were held in the Chengde Prison. They divided the practitioners into two groups, sending them to Taihang Prison and Shijiazhuang No. 2 Prison. This shows that the evil is very afraid of their crimes being exposed to the light of day, especially after the news about the death of Dingyan was published on Clearwisdom Net. It hit the evil very hard.

According to the information that we have so far, Dingyan was killed on the night of August 18, 2001 in Chengde Prison. Those directly responsible are Cai Jingang, the chief officer of Chengde Prison and a policewoman named Cao Jing. The rest of the people involved in the crime are unknown and this matter still needs further investigation.

The prison system was in panic because their crimes of torturing Falun Gong practitioners to death continue to be revealed. To cover up their crimes, they changed their strategy. Now they focus on brainwashing practitioners and using violence against them. They asked those in the labor camps who have renounced their belief of Falun Gong to form a "speech team" or a "reform team" to work on those practitioners who have firm beliefs. Their strategies include isolation, separation, group attack, brainwashing and preaching of their evil theories to persecute practitioners.

To gain political benefits, police in Taihang Prison in Hebei Province were sent to learn from the experiences of Baoding Gaoyang Forced Labor Camp, which has reputation for brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. They persuaded people who had renounced their belief in Falun Gong to influence practitioners. They set up a Falun Gong task office, headed by the prison chief officer. All top prison staff participated to planning further persecution. Falun Gong practitioners in prisons face evils every second. The situation is extremely bad. We hope to raise attention of this to all kindhearted people around the world, and we call for help from the international communities and human rights organizations to pay serious attention to the conditions and situations of Falun Gong practitioners detained in prisons in China.
