(Minghui.org) Mr. Li Jinke from Henan Province was arrested on two different occasions for going to Beijing to appeal for the end to the persecution of Falun Gong. The second time he was forcibly detained at the Xuchang Forced Labor Camp. In April of this year, the authorities operating this labor camp began a round of severe torture of Falun Gong practitioners. Police continue to persecute those practitioners who remain steadfast in their faith. The building that used to serve as the place for detainees to visit with their family members is now being used as a place to torture practitioners. The rooms are filled with instruments of torture and the corridors and walls are lined with slogans defaming Falun Gong.

From April through October police have tortured Li Jinke by binding him tightly in a straitjacket for extended periods. Every night, grief-stricken cries can be heard reverberating through the sky above the labor camp. Due to the long-term torture, Li Jinke now weighs only 70 to 80 Jin [about 77 to 88 pounds]. The police are continuing to torture him to force him to renounce his practice of Falun Gong. The president of the labor camp has threatened on several occasions to inject Mr. Li with drugs against his will.
