(Clearwisdom.net) Recently, Clearwisdom.net reported persecution cases in the Wangcun Labor Camp in Zibo City, Shandong Province. The report about the death of Ms. Yu Lianchun from Dezhou City reminded me of a female practitioner I knew. From the time, age, and location, I am positive that she is the same Yu Lianchun I knew.

In early 2000, Ms. Yu Lianchun was arrested and sent to Team Four of the Shandong No. 1 Female Labor Camp to serve a three-year forced labor sentence, the head of Team Four was Yang Anrong. In September 2000, the 48 year-old Yu Lianchun was forced to denounce Falun Gong after collaborators* from the Beijing Help and Reform Team brainwashed her. She later realized that what she did was not right and felt very guilty.

At the end of December 2000, the labor camp authorities realized that her brainwashing was not successful, and transferred her to a group monitored by policewoman Deng Wenying for continued persecution. A card on her bed read, "Yu Lianchun, 48 years old, from Dezhou, Shandong Province." However she never slept on that bed. Instead, she was at all times locked up in a small solitary cell. Everyday the collaborators took turns torturing her. The collaborators are Zhang Yuling from Jinan, Chen Lili from Yiyuan, Ying Xai and Xing Xiaoling from Weifang, Su Lili from Rizhao, Ma Shengchun from Yantai, and Zhou Chunying from Donge. The collaborators even worked overtime. They left their rooms between 4:00 and 5:00 a.m., and returned at midnight. One night, Yu Lianchun was dragged from her cell to the workshop. She laid on her stomach on the floor for almost 2 hours. She tried to get up but was too weak to do so. Her chest had a big purple bruise from the physical abuse. Later, some collaborators told me what happened to her. Ordered by the police, the collaborators punched and kicked her, and even beat her with a stool. They hit her so hard that even the stool broke. She died that same night.

The next day, the labor camp police took her body away and also relocated all the involved collaborators. Some collaborators were transferred to other teams in the Wangcun Labor Camp. Others were transferred to the Jinan City Detention Center. The name card on her bed was removed. The police told everyone that she was picked up by her family. Later, we found out that what her family had picked up were her ashes.

Currently, police officers Yang Anrong and Den Wenying are working at the Education Section of Shandong No. 1 Labor Camp.

* Collaborators are former Falun Gong practitioners who have turned against Dafa due to brainwashing and torture.
