Plans to Operate a Secret Concentration Camp in Daqing City to Persecute Falun Gong Abandoned Due to Personnel Shortage
(Clearwisdom.net) In 2004, I was illegally held at a detention center. I learned about the Daqing City Communist administration's plan to build a secret concentration camp to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. For various reasons, this plan was not realized.
Daqing City authorities had built a secret prison called "The Falun Gong Concentration Camp" between the Jianshe Hotel and the Daqing City Detention Center. The government wanted to use it to detain and persecute "political prisoners," in fact Falun Gong practitioners who refused to give up their belief. Those incarcerated there would never come out.
The huge project was finished in the fall of 2003. The local officials were waiting for orders from their superiors regarding the official name of the concentration camp, as they dared not name it themselves. It was certain, though, that "detention center," "prison," "labor camp," and the like would not be considered. They planned to send all practitioners from Daqing City to this concentration camp. They had already issued notices to the places that were holding practitioners saying that they would be transferred there and held in one place, because they were hard to manage and refused to cooperate with officials. It would be impossible for practitioners to leave the concentration camp. Their families and other people would not know their whereabouts, as they would be detained in secret until death.
The Daqing City government assigned certain police officers and doctors to work at the concentration camp. Because those who work there would not be permitted to go home or leave the site, no one wanted to go. The police officers that were appointed used their connections and came up with excuses to get out of this assignment, and in the end, very few people went. Sun Hengli, the former head of the Longfeng Detention Center in Daqing City, slept with many women. He was also very devoted to the persecution of Falun Gong, so he was appointed head of the concentration camp, although he didn't want to go.
Certain officials at the various detention centers and other places who knew the truth didn't want practitioners to be transferred; they wanted the practitioners released. At the detention center where I was being held, when some investigators came to interrogate me, the guards would say to the case handler, "Hurry up and release him! Falun Gong practitioners are good people." Some high-ranking officials disapproved of holding practitioners in a concentration camp, but their words didn't count. For various reasons, the concentration camp that was built to persecute Falun Gong practitioners was not put into operation.
I wanted to expose this when I first left the detention center, but I heard that the concentration camp never commenced operations, so I forgot about it. After reading about the crimes at the Sujiatun Secret Concentration Camp, I remembered what I had seen and heard. I think that high-level central Communist regime functionaries systemically plan the establishment of concentration camps targeting Falun Gong practitioners.
