Henan Rebecca Hair Products, Inc. in Henan Province Uses Slave Labor in Forced Labor Camps
(Clearwisdom.net) Xuchang City in Henan Province is a major production center for wig products in China. When the Henan Province No. 3 Forced Labor Camp was on the verge of bankruptcy, the labor camp abducted many Falun Gong practitioners and forced them to do slave labor making wig products for export. The labor camp survived and prospered this way. Qu Shuangcai, the former labor camp head, is favored by his superiors for his zeal in persecuting Falun Gong. In May 2003 he was transferred to the Shibalihe Female Labor Camp in Zhenzhou City and put in charge of that labor camp. Right away he signed a contract with Henan Rebecca Hair Products, Inc. in Xuchang City. In addition, within several months, three female Falun Gong practitioners were tortured to death.
No. 3 Labor Camp Gets Rich Exploiting Falun Gong Practitioners' Labor
Yuzhou County (in Xuchang City) and Xuchang City, Henan Province is a major manufacturing center for wig products in China. Great amounts of them are sold to the U.S. and European markets. The chairman of the board of Henan Rebecca Hair Products, Inc, who is also the general manager and a distributor, resides in the U.S. Henan Province No. 3 Labor Camp in Xuchang City is located between Xuchang City and Yuzhou County. Many of these wig product factories don't hire many employees outright; instead, they rely heavily on the slave labor of detainees in forced labor camps, jails and detention centers, including many illegally detained Falun Gong practitioners.
Guard Shen Jianwei from No. 3 Labor Camp often said, "A while back, when the labor camp was short of funding and was about to be shut down, many Falun Gong practitioners became available. The government allocated 20,000 Yuan to 'reform' each practitioner. The labor camp used eight million Yuan of government funding to construct residential buildings to encourage the guards to persecute these practitioners." Right now, the labor camp is "buying" Falun Gong practitioners from other places for 800 Yuan each, as slaves to increase the volume of products. Whoever shouts "Falun Dafa is good" at the labor camp is tortured.
Qu Shuangcai Escalates the Persecution of Falun Gong, Leading to Disaster
Qu Shuangcai, head of the No. 3 Labor Camp, has committed countless crimes and has received retribution. Once, when riding a motorcycle, he ran into a wall and was hospitalized for five months. Unfortunately, he didn't repent. Instead, he is favored by his superiors and was transferred to the Shibalihe Female Labor Camp in Zhenzhou City and promoted to head of that labor camp. Right away he signed a contract with Henan Rebecca Hair Products, Inc. located 120 miles away from the labor camp in Xuchang City, and brought straight jackets with him. Within several months three female Falun Gong practitioners were tortured to death.
Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhang Yali, in her 30's, was one of the practitioners who were tortured to death by straight jackets. She was an accountant at the No. 2 Oil Extraction plant of the Oil Exploration Bureau in Henan Province. Her husband was the deputy manager of the plant. Their daughter is a junior high school student. Zhang Yali was very responsible in her job, worked hard and diligently, and was very kind. She proactively carried out her assignments at her job and was well liked by her colleagues.
The straight jackets are made of fine canvas. They are put on the victim from the front and tightened from behind the back. The sleeves are about 10 inches longer than the victim's arms, with straps on them. The persecutors force determined Dafa practitioners to wear the strait jackets, and then pull their arms to their backs, cross and tie their arms behind their backs. Then they pull their arms up over their shoulders to the front of their chest, tie up the practitioners' legs and hang them up in the air from the windows. At the same time, they gag practitioners' mouths with cloth, put earphones in their ears and continuously play messages that slander Dafa. According to an eyewitness account, people who suffer this torture quickly sustain broken arms, torn tendons, shoulders, wrists and elbows. Those who endure this torture for a long time have completely broken spines, and they die in agonizing pain. On May 22, 2003, a female Dafa practitioner in her 40's was tortured this way for one day and one night. When she was released from the strait jacket on May 23, her body was cold. In order to conceal their crime, the police ordered drug addicts, and criminals Yan Ping and Fu Jinyu to carry her body to a nearby hospital for an injection. Afterwards they claimed she died from a sudden illness and hastily cremated her body. Crimes Behind "National Civilized Work Unit"
Only male detainees are held at No. 3 Labor Camp of Henan Province in southwestern Xuchang City. More than 800 people, including illegally detained Falun Gong practitioners, are detained at this No. 3 Forced Labor Camp. They are forced to work overtime, day and night, under the high-pressure and cruel control of the guards. If the workers make a slight mistake, the guards slap, kick and verbally abuse them. This labor camp was awarded the "National Civilized Work Unit" citation from the Central Politics and Law Committee "610 Office" and the Labor Camp Bureau, for persecuting Falun Gong. At the time the award was put up, three detainees fainted from exhaustion.
Young practitioners Mr. Li Jian from Zhengyang County, Zhumadian City, and Mr. Yao Sanzhong, an outstanding teacher in Luohe City, were tortured to death at the labor camp. The labor camp authorities lied and claimed they died of "natural causes." When Dafa practitioners questioned the officials, they tied up the practitioners with ropes, taped their mouths shut, shocked them with electric batons, hit them with rubber clubs and subjected them to the "Tiger Bench" torture, in addition psychological torment. They also increased the practitioners' workload. If the practitioners do not complete them on time, they are not be allowed to sleep; they are forced to stand against the wall and their terms are illegally extended.
Names of Persecutors at the No. 3 Labor Camp
Aside from Qu Shuangcai, the former head of labor camp, guards at Henan Province No. 3 Labor Camp include Shi Baolong, Ma Huating, Tan Junmin, Ren Gaoqiang (the former political head of the Falun Gong Division, currently the head of the Education Section; he is very vicious) Dong Jianchao, Li Xinjie, Jia Zigang (head of the Falun Gong team, very vicious) and Zhao Zhimin. In order to make money for themselves and get promotions, they viciously persecute Falun Gong practitioners and extort money from them in a villainous manner. Falun Gong practitioner Wang Yukun from Anyang City was beaten until a bone in his leg broke; practitioner Pang Liang's arms were broken and nearly lost function, but the labor camp authorities would not allow them to have medical treatment and refused to release them. Falun Gong practitioners illegally detained at labor camps in Henan Province are being brutally persecuted and are completely deprived of their most basic human rights.
We call for all just governments, organizations, businesses and individuals to resist the sale and consumption of these wig products, which have on them the blood of Dafa practitioners who abide by the principle of Truth-Compassion-Tolerance. In the business world, there is a proverb saying "a truly good person profits through humane means." If we allow the sale of such hair products, aren't we helping the evil persecution? If there is no demand for such hair products, the evil labor camps would lose their profitability and base for persecution.
We call for all just governments, business people and other people in the world to pay attention to the labor camps that are utilizing Falun Gong practitioners' slave labor. Learn from the practitioners around you, especially from those who are unwilling to give up their belief and were illegally detained in labor camps in China; learn the true story about products made by Falun Gong practitioners who are forced to do slave labor in the labor camps in China. We call for everyone who knows the facts to resist and expose the crimes with their conscience and power of justice, to expose the pre-arranged visits and shows hosted by labor camps in China that are used to cover up their crimes.
