Driven by Profit, Xuchang Forced Labor Camp Staff Torture Falun Gong Practitioners
Xuchang Forced Labor Camp, the No. 3 force labor camp in Henan province, can get 25,000 yuan from the CCP regime for each Falun Gong practitioner that they turn against Dafa. Driven by profit, the forced labor camp authorities cruelly torture Falun Gong practitioners in order to reach that goal. Below is what I have seen and experienced in the No. 3 forced labor camp.
Every Falun Gong practitioner taken to Xuchang Forced Labor Camp is forced to write the "three letters" (letter of guarantee, letter renouncing Falun Gong, and letter of repentance). Refusal will result in beatings, electric shock, being hung up, or an increased work quota.
Li Jinke, a Falun Gong practitioner from Nanyang City, Henan Province, who refused to write the "three letters," was beaten nearly to death. In May 2005, Mr. Li shouted, "Falun Dafa is good!" He was subsequently beaten into unconsciousness by a guard team headed by Zhao Zhimin.
Similarly, when Mr. Tang Keyu shouted, "Falun Dafa is good" in a 2004 labor camp meeting, he was immediately taken to a small cell. He was then beaten by a guard wielding a rubber stick, and his mouth was stuffed with a dirty cloth. In addition, his term was extended by 10 months.
Qi County's Falun Gong practitioner Cui Shuyong was sentenced to two years of forced labor for posting truth clarification materials. The guard head Zhao Zhimin, CCP director Shen Jianwei and guard Meng Guanglu tried to force him to write the "three letters," but Mr. Cui refused to write them. Those three guards thus tied him up and beat him for a long time. As a result, two ropes and two rubber sticks were broken, and Mr. Cui was covered with bruises. Guard Shen Jianwei beat Mr. Cui in the face with a leather shoe, causing the shape of his face to become distorted. On May 5, 2005, Mr. Cui was badly beaten by Shen Jianwei again. His face was covered with bruises and blood, and after the beating he was forced to stand out in the rain.
It was later reported that writing the "three letters" was considered by the CCP to be successful "transformation", and the camp authorities can get 25,000 yuan from the CCP for each transformed Falun Gong practitioner. So in order to obtain the "three letters," the guards used every means at their disposal to torture practitioners.
Severe physical abuse of Falun Gong practitioners is common in Xuchang Forced Labor Camp. Mr. Zheng Jianmin from Pingdingshan City, who was arrested and taken to Xuchang Forced Labor Camp in March 2005 and refused to write the "three letters", was beaten by guard Shi Baolong, Shen Jianwei and Meng Guanglu several times.
Detainees in the Xuchang Forced Labor Camp are forced to work 15 to 16 hours a day, their workday often not ending until midnight. According to regulations, each labor camp detainee is entitled to get 6 yuan for his labor every month, but the guards pocket this money for themselves.
