Cruel Tortures in the Women's Forced Labor Camp of Hohhot, Ms. Zhang Yuhua Suffers Mental Collapse
(Clearwisdom.net) In the Women's Forced Labor Camp of Hohhot, guards force Falun Dafa practitioners to stand for several days, lock them in solitary confinement, forbid them from going to the bathroom or washing or brushing their teeth, and deprive them of sleep. They begin such treatment as soon as practitioners arrive in attempts to force them to give up Falun Dafa. Many practitioners' legs and feet were so badly swollen from standing that they could not wear their shoes anymore.
If these tortures do not change practitioners' minds, the guards coerce inmates to torture practitioners day and night. Inmates cuff practitioners' hands behind their backs and hang them up so that the tips of their feet barely touch the floor. This torture is named "riding an airplane." If this doesn't work they might shock them with electric batons and whip them with triangular prism-shaped leather belts that had been soaked in cold water. Practitioners are whipped so badly that their bruised backs are left completely covered in blue and purple stripes.
During the day they are forced to do hard labor and at night they are cuffed to the doors. One 50 year old Falun Dafa practitioner was forced to kneel on the handle of a mop for over 10 hours. In the end, the mop handle was pressed into the practitioner's flesh.
In the summer, practitioners are herded into the sports field to "feed the mosquitoes." In the winter, they are put there to freeze, so that the cuffs stick to their hands.
Guards brutally torture practitioners every day. Practitioner Zhang Yuhua was tortured until she suffered a mental collapse. Rather than showing any compassion, the guards exclaimed: "You are just pretending, so we will extend your jail term."
These are only a few examples of the many tortures against Falun Dafa practitioners in the Hohhot Women's Forced Labor Camp. Every practitioner detained there has had a bitter and miserable experience.
