(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioners from Zhengzhou and surrounding areas are being illegally detained in Baimiao Forced Labor Camp. Currently, four Dafa practitioners are being detained there as part of Squad 3 (previously Squad 5). They are Mr. Fu Zhenyong (61 years old, a retired worker from Zhengzhou City's Coal & Electricity Mechanical Plant), Mr. Zhao Shucan (33 years old, an employee of Xinzheng City's Bureau of Commodities), Mr. Li Leiming (34 years old, a graduate student) and Mr. Li Jinzhong (37 years old, a resident in Gongyi). Details of their mistreatment follow:

The torture of Falun Dafa practitioner Xu Xiaoguo

Around the end of February or the beginning of March 2004, policemen from the Guancheng District Police Department of Zhengzhou City illegally took Mr. Xu Xiaoguo to Baimiao Forced Labor Camp. Li Xichuan, a retired guard from the 610 Office who was reappointed to work at the forced labor camp because he had taken an active part in the persecution of Falun Dafa admitted him, although he knew that Xu Xiaoguo's physical condition didn't meet the qualifying criteria for detention.

In the forced labor camp, Xu Xiaoguo refused to give up his beliefs and maintained righteous thoughts and actions, and he firmly requested his release. After his request was refused, he went on a hunger strike to protest. About one week into his hunger strike, the guards tortured him by force-feeding him with a concentrated saline solution. The responsible guards were Song Yanchen, (currently the deputy director of the Education Section) who brutally tortured many Falun Dafa practitioners for personal gain, and Gao, the director for the Prisoner Activities Section.

Song and Gao ordered four criminal inmates on night duty to force-feed him with concentrated saline solution after director Hou encouraged them to use this method and officially sanctioned it. In compliance with Song and Gao's orders, the criminal inmates pinned Xu Xiaoguo to the floor in the office, immobilized him by stepping on his hands and feet, kneeling on his chest, and blindfolding him with an old rag. Then Song used screwdrivers and pliers to pry Xu Xiaoguo's mouth open, pinched his nose to prevent him from breathing, and poured lots of salt into his nose and mouth. He then poured a glass of concentrated saline solution into Xu Xiaoguo's open mouth. In the process, his lungs were also filled with salt water. Xu Xiaoguo's vocal cords and lungs were severely damaged, causing him to cough up yellow phlegm for several months. His voice has also become hoarse.

The director of Squad 3 Lu Shuangfu, who was previously a guard in Squad 1 and persecuted Dafa practitioners even more viciously after he got a promotion, ordered the criminal inmates to persecute Dafa practitioners. Consequently, criminal Wei Wenhui, the leader of the labor team, prevented Xu Xiaoguo from sleeping for four continuous days and nights. On the fourth day, Xu Xiaoguo questioned Lu Shuangfu directly about the inmate's abuse. Lu pretended to be surprised and asked, "Really? How come I didn't know about this?" Then he put the blame on the leader of another squad who had nothing to do with the matter. When Lu saw that his approach yielded no results, he ordered two new guards, Wang Weidong and Wang Dongdong, to attack Xu Xiaoguo with electric batons in order to try to force him to renounce Falun Gong.

Lu and Squad Leader He Xianghong eventually decided that the two new guards were not brutal enough. They seized the electric batons and shocked Xu Xiaoguo's head and armpits. They shocked him for a long time, until his flesh was burnt.

The torture of Falun Dafa practitioner Quan Peijun

Since July 20, 1999, Quan Peijun, an employee of Shangjie District Aluminum Factory in Zhengzhou City, has been illegally detained twice in Wanqingshanzhuang Brainwashing Center and Baimiao Forced Labor Camp, because he persisted in his belief in the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance."

At the beginning of 2003, he was illegally sent to Baimiao Forced Labor Camp for the second time, and the guards in Squad 5 (currently re-named Squad 3) struck his face with electric batons. The flesh on many parts of his body started to fester, and his face bore many bloody marks. The guards involved in the torture included Li Xichuan, Yang Shaofeng (Squad Leader), Song Yanchen, Guo Wuyi and Yu Baohong.

On the night of April 24, 2003, the guards, ostensibly acting on orders, electrically shocked Quan Peijun and other practitioners again because Quan Peijun firmly refused to be "transformed." In order to avoid having to individually bear the consequences of their transgressions in the future, all the guards were required participate in the persecution that night.

At the beginning of 2004, after former guard Lu Shuangfu was appointed director, the persecution escalated further. Mr. Quan Peijun wrote down his upright understanding on the required weekly self-examination report, which made Lu very angry. He ordered the incarcerated drug addicts to create pressure and difficulties for Quan Peijun both in his daily life and when doing slave labor. However they still could not force him to yield. Lu then said to Quan Peijun, "If you still refuse to be transformed, I won't even let you sleep." Quan Peijun sternly replied, "If you dare to violate the law in this way, I'll immediately report you to your superiors." Just like before, Lu's threats failed.

In June 2004, after Lu had once again failed to force Quan Peijun to renounce Falun Gong, he said, "I'll get those drug addicts to punish you." Quan Peijun was left alone in the room, while Lu and Guo Wuyi, a guard notorious for brutality, called together several drug addicts and told them, "You are free to beat him as you please." They thought that many of them would immediately attack Quan Peijun. However, only the leader of the labor team Wei Wenhui beat Quan Peijun after being pressured by the guards. One of the addicts privately said, "I would not do such a crazy thing."

In August 2004, when his term had already expired, the Baimiao Forced Labor Camp and Shangjie District Political and Judiciary Section illegally transferred Quan Peijun to the Wanqingshanzhuang Brainwashing Center in Zhengzhou for further persecution

Packaging fake pesticides to earn money dishonestly

The guards in Squad 3 had the prisoners slander Falun Dafa and abuse practitioners by threatening to extend their terms. Many of the prisoners realized that Falun Dafa is good and that practitioners are good people, but due to the threats and incentives, they acted against their conscience and committed crimes against Dafa.

Squad 3 took advantage of the laws that favor corrupt behavior and allowed bad things to be done to good people. Between April and July 2004, Squad 3 processed and packed at least one hundred tons of fake pesticides and sold them. No one will ever know how many farmers were cheated. In order to produce the fake pesticides, the guards in Squad 3 forced the prisoners to work throughout the night. Everyday, we were assigned huge workloads and had to work over 18 hours. Beatings to force us to complete the work quickly took place daily.

They forced everyone to work excessively in order to torture Dafa practitioners both mentally and physically. Due to so-called "production problems," many Dafa practitioners, including Fu Zhenyong, Zhao Shucan, Zhu Yunlong, Hou Jinyou, Xu Xiaoguo and Quan Peijun, were beaten by the guards and drug addicts during this period of time.

We need to tear off the false mask of "education, reform and salvation via a gentle breeze and a mild rain" that the Baimiao Forced Labor Camp guards present to the outside world, to expose this den of evil.
