Torture in the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp Causes Ms. Lin Li'na to Become Mentally Unstable
In May 2001, I was imprisoned in a detention center for three and a half months. During the detention period, I got acquainted with a fellow practitioner. Her name was Ms. Lin Li'na and she was about 35 years old. No matter what the guards did to her, she kept clarifying the truth about Falun Gong to them. I still have a distant memory of her genial facial expressions.
I heard that she was sent to the Masanjia Labor Camp during the second half of 2002. The guards there initially showered her with false compassion and later tortured her by forcing her legs into a crossed position and tying up her hands and legs with rope. She could not withstand the brutality of their torture for very long and was "transformed" against her will. She experienced feelings of guilt inside in addition to the physical and mental torture from outside. The sudden collapse of her mental state made her unstable, resulting in her release from the camp. Thereafter, her husband divorced her and he secured custody of their children.
The sight of a woman on the street with disheveled hair and a dirty face on the morning of May 26, 2005 made me sad. Her pitiful state prompted a fellow practitioner to take her into her house. A closer look at her made us realize that she was our fellow practitioner Ms. Lin Li'na. I kept holding her arms, asking her questions. Her response was a kind of foolish laughter that brought tears to our eyes. Her dirty body and matted hair revealed that she had not taken a bath for a long time. When we did not talk to her, she talked to herself. Sometimes, she seemed to understand us, and sometimes, she did not. She seemed to be very hungry. My fellow practitioner gave her some food to eat and we took her to the bathroom since she could not take a bath by herself. It took a full hour to clean up her hair. Her mood was always agitated and she always wanted to run out. Our best efforts to stop her could not prevent her from running away and we could not find her again. We felt guilty for not taking better care of Ms. Lin Li'na.
Cases such as Ms. Lin's have happened several times in the Masanjia Labor Camp. This case, we know, while there are many others that we do not.
I sincerely wish that all the practitioners who know about the facts can keep exposing the persecution against the Falun Gong practitioners in the Masanjia Labor Camp. At the same time, I appeal to all the practitioners to provide help for those seriously persecuted practitioners, in order for them to return to the practice of Falun Dafa as soon as possible.
