After reading about the atrocity of the Sujiatun Concentration Camp, I thought of practitioner Ms. Cheng Chunmin.

I was illegally detained in the Shuanghe Forced Labor Camp in Qiqihar City, Heilongjiang Province, in 2001. The forced labor camp used collaborators to besiege those practitioners who did not want to be "transformed." They were required to listen to false reasoning and evil teachings. The camp separated practitioners into different cells. The labor camp ordered criminal inmates to monitor and control practitioners. The guards made practitioners sit on metal chairs. The guards tortured practitioners with electric batons and forced feeding. The guards would not allow practitioners to contact or meet with their family members.

In 2002, the Shuanghe Forced Labor Camp detained over 20 female practitioners who were firm in their belief. The No. 1 Team detained them in the No. 7 and No. 9 prison rooms. Ms. Cheng Chunmin, ten other firm practitioners, and I were detained in the No. 9 room.

Once some people from above came to inspect the work in the forced labor camp. We were transferred to a dismal and extremely cold cellar, which was used to store winter vegetables for the Shuanghe Forced Labor Camp. Even the guards could not stand the cold and were constantly calling someone to ask when the inspection would end. At that time, we got to know why we were taken to that dismal cellar.

In 2003, after the so-called "Spring Thunder Mission," which was intended to persecute practitioners, the Shuanghe Forced Labor Camp locked Ms. Cheng in solitary confinement to reinforce the "transformation." It was said that Ms. Cheng tore up the document that she signed earlier during forced brainwashing. The guards tied her onto an iron chair to torture her until she lost consciousness. The guards still did not succeed. She was tall and thin before. After the persecution, she became even thinner.

Afterwards, Ms. Cheng was detained separately. I have no idea what kind of persecution she went through. She was illegally detained for three years, which was longer than my detention time. Later on, I did not hear any news about her.

I hope someone who knows will report more about her situation.

Record of persecution towards Ms. Cheng Chunmin:

Ms. Cheng Chunmin, 44 years old, is from Yi'an county, Qiqihar City, Heilongjiang Province. Before July 20, 1999, she had a small business in Langfang City, Hebei Province. After the persecution began, she was taken to the Tangshan Forced Labor Camp because she firmly believed in Dafa. In the beginning of 2002, Ms. Cheng was detained at the Yuecheng Brainwashing Center in Langfang City. Later on, police officer Yan Zhen and others from the Langfang City Police Department sent her to her hometown in Yichun City, Heilongjiang Province.

Later on, Ms. Cheng Chunmin was sentenced to three years of forced labor by the Yi'an County Police Department in Qiqihar City. In the Shuanghe Forced Labor Camp, she suffered constantly from the guards' brutal persecution because she would not give up her belief. She was placed in solitary confinement and was forced to attend brainwash sessions. She had to do slave labor. The guards put her on an iron chair and tortured her. The solitary confinement cell was humid with no sunlight. In the winter, it was extremely cold. The heater was not working at all. The bedding had mold and smelled like someone had wet the bed. One could squeeze water out of the cushion. In the summer, it was hot and stuffy with no ventilation. Mosquitoes covered the wall and the floor. She had to use cold water to wash her clothes and take a bath, all in the same room.

Nobody knows her current whereabouts.
