After Practitioner Lu Changliang Was Tortured to the Brink of Death, the Police Ask, "If She Dies, So What?"
(Clearwisdom.net) Authorities from Shenyang City's Longshan Labor Camp have tortured 43-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner, Ms. Lu Changliang, to the brink of death. She has now been sent to the General Hospital of the Liaoning Province Prison Management Bureau for medical treatment on August 4, 2004.
On August 2, Yang Min, the deputy head of Division One in Longshan Labor Camp, called Ms. Lu Changliang's family members and told them that she was coughing up blood due to a gastric hemorrhage. He asked them to pay "medical expenses" of 1000 Yuan. The family members answered that they had not been allowed to see her for a long time, and they demanded to see her before agreeing to pay. The labor camp finally relented.
On August 3, four inmates carried Ms. Lu, who was already unable to walk, downstairs from the third floor, where Division One was. Being very weak, Ms. Lu told her family members that she had three wounds on her body due to the electric shocks she had been subjected to and showed them the wounds on her right leg. The three blackened wounds were very clear. The guards in Longshan Labor Camp used electric batons to shock her in May 2004 and left scars on her body. Her father and fifteen-year-old son have witnessed the wounds. On August 4, Yue Jun, the chief of Division One and Xu Bin, supervisor of Division One, sent Ms. Lu Changliang to the General Hospital of Liaoning Province Prison Management Bureau for further persecution. The family members came to the hospital demanding to see her but were stopped by Yue Jun and others. When they asked for the policemen's names, Yue Jun arrogantly said, "Look me up on the Internet!"
On August 5, Ms. Lu's mother came to the labor camp again and demanded to see her daughter. Yue Jun evaded her by saying that he was not the person that made decisions, and that the decision has to be made by the twelve directors of the labor camp, but none of them were available. Wang Xuetao, the chief of Life and Health Section in Longshan Labor Camp, even told her, "I can give you an answer. You can go sue us anywhere you like. She is a criminal. If she dies, so what?" Wang had participated in torturing a 33-year-old Falun Gong practitioner, Su Weihuan from Division Two, in March 2004 using electric batons.
Ms. Lu Changliang is a Falun Dafa practitioner from Yuhong District, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1997. Since Jiang Zemin's regime started illegally persecuting Falun Gong in 1999, she has been to Beijing to appeal several times. She has also been illegally searched, detained and extorted out of money by lawless officials many times. During 2000, she was detained at the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp. In March 2002, she was arrested by the Dalian City National Security agents, and was detained at Dalian City Detention Center. She went on hunger strike to resist the persecution, but was brutally force-fed. The guards even cut the arch of her feet to "test her state of consciousness." Later on she was sentenced to two and a half years of forced labor, and was detained at Division One of Shenyang City's Longshan Forced Labor Camp since spring of 2002. She has suffered long-term persecution in the labor camp, including brainwashing and torture. In response, she has carried out hunger strikes several times to resist the persecution. Between July and August 2002, the labor camp sent her, along with Xia Yulan and another Falun Gong practitioner who also firmly believes in Falun Dafa, to Shenyang City's Zhanshi Labor Camp for brainwashing and torture. Ms. Lu Changliang refused to give up her belief, so they sent her back to Longshan Labor Camp and detained her in a team of criminals.
To resist the inhuman torture by Longshan Labor Camp, several Falun Gong practitioners and Ms. Lu Changliang started a hunger strike on July 20, 2004. It has been ongoing for almost 20 days at the time of this writing.
It has been reported that Falun Gong practitioner Ren Shujie, who had been illegally detained at Division Two of Shenyang City's Longshan Labor Camp, was transferred to Masanjia Labor Camp between May and June 2004.
