(Clearwisdom.net) Tang Liming and four others used various means to torture Falun Dafa practitioners at Suzhou Prison in Anhui Province. Practitioner Wu Jianghai suffered from a mental disorder because of the persecution, and practitioner Xu Kun's leg was broken during a vicious beating by prison guards.

A special base was set up to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners in Suzhou Prison. The five people involved in the persecution were Tang Liming, Xia Liangmin, Liu, Huang, and Yao. To meet the requirements of their supervisors' inspection, they wrote slogans on red paper slandering Falun Gong, and posted them on the walls throughout Suzhou Prison. When they discovered the slogans were removed, they persecuted Dafa disciples with violent attacks.

Because Wu Jianghai persisted in his cultivation practice, prison guards handcuffed him behind his back and confined him to a tiny cell. In June he was tortured with exposure to the baking sun. They also made use of criminal prisoners, who had been sentenced to death or lifetime imprisonment, to ruthlessly beat Wu Jianghai. They used rubber batons, electric batons and various cruel means to torture him, and he was then carried back to his cell by two people. He became incontinent from this brutal torture. Wu Jianghai was later locked in a small cell again for several months, and endured further torture. When he suffered a third round of torture, he finally became mentally disordered. He has been this way for several months now.

Falun Dafa practitioner Xu Kun was beaten by prison guards with rubber and electric batons. In the freezing winter they poured cold water on his naked body and blew fans on him. His leg was broken in a vicious beating by prison guards. Another practitioner from Hefei was plump and healthy when he entered the prison. He was tortured by prison guards until he was so thin and disfigured that other practitioners hardly recognized him. Yet he still said, "Don't be afraid. The evil is nothing."

Special small cells were set up in the persecution base, through which Falun Gong practitioners are monitored, even while using the restroom. At the base, a practitioners' every move and every word is under the evil's surveillance. Falun Dafa practitioners who held hunger strikes to protest the persecution were chained to big boards and brutally force-fed. Practitioner Xie Jiaqi, over 60-years-old, was handcuffed behind his back. Guards tortured him continuously for several days and deprived him of sleep.

The guards at the so-called "transformation base" in Suzhou Prison started a "100 day campaign." From July through September 2005, they used extremely despicable means to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners who maintain their belief in "Truthfulness, Benevolence, Forbearance." Because practitioner Wu Jiang refused to cooperate with their so-called "transformation," the monitoring group consisting of prison guards and criminals beat him and tortured him. They tied a rope to his testicles for several days with no reprieve. Practitioner Ji Chuanjun suffered internal injuries from beatings to his chest, making it difficult to breathe and walk. Prison guards beat practitioner Du Changwei with seven electric batons simultaneously, shocking his body and inside his mouth. Prison guards locked practitioner Yang Manyi in a small cell several times, then tied him to a chair and chained his feet, beating him from behind with electric batons to force him to go up and down stairs. They also tortured practitioner Cao Xiongbin by placing him in a confined cell for a long time.

Listed above are just a few of the many cases of the brutal and illegal persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners by prison personnel. The prison guards inside Suzhou Prison are evil, cruel, and inhumane.
