Musician Liu Zhifang Tortured to Death in Gansu Province Brainwashing Center

December 21, 2005 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Liu Zhifang was a Pipa (Chinese lute) musician employed by the Gansu Province Yu-Opera Institute. She died at the end of July 2005, due to being tortured for a long time hanging by handcuffs backward. The details are yet to be investigated. The administration of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) "Legal Education School" follows Jiang and his regime's secret order that "Killing Falun Gong practitioners counts as suicide;" they spread around that Ms. Liu Zhifang's case was suicide, and strictly sealed off any information.

The Gongjiawan Brainwashing Center is located in an old storage building that has a sign outside the gate that says "Lanzhou City Legal Education School." It is a dark den that specifically detains Falun Dafa practitioners, where all sorts of brutal means are used to torture the practitioners in attempts to force them to give up their faith in "Truthfulness, Benevolence, Forbearance. The guards lock up Falun Dafa practitioners in solitary confinement for 24 hours, and deprive them of their right to sleep. Ms. Zhang Juxiu (in her 70s) was hung for one week with her hands tied together. More than one hundred Falun Dafa practitioners have been arrested and placed in the brainwashing sessions here, from teenagers to senior citizens that are over 70 years old.

Ms. Liu Zhifang was 48 years old. On July 31, 2000, she went to Beijing to validate the fact that Falun Dafa is good, and was arrested by police, and detained in the Tianjin City and Lanzhou City (capitol of Gansu Province) detention centers. She was forced to perform heavy labor. She was arrested and taken to this Gongjiawan Brainwashing Class in 2001, but walked out using strong righteous thoughts. She walked from Tianshui City (Gansu Province) to her home town in Anhui Province in three and a half months, and clarified the truth to her friends and family.

Ms. Liu Zhifang went back to Lanzhou City in 2002, and never stopped clarifying the truth to people. In July 2005, she was once again arrested and taken to the "Lanzhou City Legal Education School" (Gongjiawan Brainwashing Center) by policemen. She was locked in solitary confinement, tortured for a long period of time hanging backwards by handcuffs, and died at the end of July 2005.

The administration of Gongjiawan Brainwashing Center (including the document sent out on July 29, 2005) states that Ms. Liu Zhifang committed suicide. They threatened the witnesses, and strictly sealed off all information from leaking out.

Persecution Facts of Other Falun Dafa Practitioners in Gongjiawan Brainwashing Center

At the beginning of March 2005, Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Luo Qingshu, who is over 70 years old, and retired from Gansu Province Mining Bureau, was locked in solitary confinement because she refused to write the three statements. She has been forced to sleep on the cement floor for three months, and tortured by being hung backwards by handcuffs. The Mining Bureau paid the brainwashing center ten thousand yuan from April to May, and another twelve thousand yuan from July to August, and they are withdrawing this money from Ms. Luo's retirement salary. Ms. Luo was dying at the beginning of October 2005, and she was sent to 515 Hospital for rescue. Her information is also strictly blocked right now.

Ms. Han Zhongcui, 47, was an employee of Donggang Neighborhood Administration. Because she firmly cultivated Falun Dafa, she has been detained many times. In the middle of September 2003, she was arrested for the second time and sent to this brainwashing center. She had been directly locked in solitary confinement, and hung backwards by her handcuffs for more than one month. She was dying when she was carried out, could not move a bit, and her pants were badly soiled. The torture was continued after her condition improved. The guards locked her in the basement and solitary confinement many times, and tortured her by hanging her backwards by her handcuffs, which disabled her arms. On December 10, 2004, she was locked in solitary confinement again, repeatedly tortured by hanging her backwards by her handcuffs, and forced to sleep on the cement floor without heat for nine months, including the entire winter. She is currently still detained in this brainwashing center.

Falun Dafa practitioners Mr. Niu Wanjiang and Mr. Hua Jingchuan were both secretly sent to this brainwashing center after their terms ended.

The above is only the tip of the iceberg of the crimes happening in Gongjiawan Brainwashing Center with Falun Dafa practitioners.
