Jilin Prison Covers Up Its Crime of Torturing Liu Chengjun to Death to Deceive the Public

February 04, 2004 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) To cover up its crime of torturing practitioner Mr. Liu Chengjun to death, the notorious Jilin Prison in Jilin Province came up with new tricks. They brought in reporters from the local television station to boast without restraint about how good the prison was, how well they treated criminals and how they cared about Falun Gong practitioners, etc. They also interviewed some pre-arranged criminals and so-called "transformed" practitioners to fabricate stories in order to keep the truth from being known. In addition, they brought in the public for a guided tour, locking up all practitioners in the small cells and in the "strict class" under surveillance by 5-6 criminals. The public tends to be fooled by the farce. Since Liu Chengjun's case and the prison's other atrocities have been exposed, authorities were fearful. They blocked all outgoing information and further punished Falun Dafa practitioners being held there. The details are as follows.

Mr. Wang Jingang was sent to a strict class to coerce him into writing a "Solemn Declaration" [A statement written by Falun Dafa practitioners who went through brainwashing to declare that the so-called "Three Statements" - Repentance Statement, Guarantee Statement and Dissociation Statement --to renounce their faith in Falun Dafa under brainwashing and torture be declared invalid]. The same thing happened to Mr. Zhang Chunyu, Wang Juncheng, and Liang Zhenxing for holding a hunger strike. Mr. Tan Qiucheng from the No. 5 Brigade was subjected to a torture called "Stretching Bed" [The four limbs of the practitioner are stretched out and tied to the four corners of an icy-cold metal bed. The practitioner cannot move at all. Neither is he allowed to get up to eat, drink, or use the bathroom. This treatment lasts from several hours to more than a dozen days. This cruel torture causes severe damage to the practitioner both mentally and physically.] for refusing to write the so-called "Four Statements" [Practitioners are coerced under brainwashing and torture to write these as proof that they have given up their belief. Created by the "610 Office," the four statements consist of at least a letter of repentance, a guarantee to never again practice Falun Gong, and a list of names and addresses of all family members, friends and acquaintances who are practitioners]. He suffered from a bleeding tongue and his hands and legs were injured from the brutal Stretching Bed torture. Mr. and Mrs. Chen Jinghui from Liaoyuan County were sentenced to imprisonment. Mr. Chen Jinghui was put into the "strict class" for speaking up against the persecution of other practitioners. Mr. Wu Yifeng was also subjected to the torture of the "Stretching Bed" for refusing to write the "Four Statements." Mr. Zheng Weidong from Changchun, who has endured all kinds of torture for a long time, is still held at the "strict class." His wife, Ms. Shen Jianli, was tortured to death.
