(Clearwisdom.net) As of April 2006, authorities from the Duyun Prison in Guizhou Province have been transferring Falun Gong practitioners to a newly built prison ward. Falun Gong practitioners from Beijing, Shanghai, and Sichuan and Guizhou Provinces have been illegally incarcerated at this new facility. Practitioner Yi Siheng from Chongqing City has been on a hunger strike for more than 22 months, and he is in critical condition.

Driven by the secret orders from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) aiming to hasten the destruction of persecution evidence, the violence of the coercion, torture and exploitation of Falun Gong practitioners is continuing at the Duyun Prison (its public name is Duyun Cement Factory). They never permit family visits for the practitioners. Because the prison's function in persecuting Falun Gong, Luo Gan, the head persecutor, awarded the facility the title "Bureau-level Civilized Prison." Prison head Hou Lide was one of Luo Gan's former classmates. Luo Gan also decided that the ruling regime would allocate 20,000 yuan per Falun Gong practitioner held at the Duyun Prison, in order to encourage the prison to constantly escalate its persecution against Falun Gong.

Some guards at the prison said, "We are not afraid to go to hell for persecuting Falun Gong." They encouraged the other inmates to use all types of mental and physical methods to torture Falun Gong practitioners. They said, "Beating Falun Gong practitioners to death is nothing and will be counted as suicide or death from illnesses. You should show absolutely no pity, especially toward those who refuse to 'reform.' The Party and government are behind you! So carry out this order without any reservation!"

The prison authorities also sent guards to the Baoding Prison in Hebei Province, to prisons in Beijing and in northern China where Falun Gong practitioners are held, to study persecution methods. They sent guard Wang Shijun to the Yuzhou Prison in Sichuan Province, among other places, to study "reform" methods for nearly one month. After the guard returned to the Duyun Prison, the officials held a secret meeting to discuss how to reform and attack practitioners. They decided physical torture of the practitioners is necessary. They could even deny the practitioners their basic needs, including forbidding restroom use.

The inmates who persecute Falun Gong are awarded with credits that imply sentence reductions and a monetary rewards for each practitioner they "reform." They don't, however, post this policy on the wall like other prisons. Guard Wang Shijun said, "The facilities at the Yuzhou Prison are built in French-style. About 400 Falun Gong practitioners are held there. They are completely shut off from the outside from the moment they enter the prison, and they eat and use the toilet at the same place. Twelve inmates are assigned to watch each practitioner, and guards are in charge of this issue. The guards are awarded between 5,000 yuan to 10,000 yuan for reforming one practitioner. The inmates receive rewards and sentence reductions. Although our prison (Duyun Prison) is temporarily lacking in physical facilities, a new prison ward is almost finished, where nearly 1,000 high-standard prison cells meet our requirements. Whoever leaks the content of this internal meeting will have his rewards and sentence reductions withdrawn, and his sentence will be extended instead."

We urgently call upon the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG) and other related organizations to investigate the Duyun Prison, as we must immediately stop the massacre of Falun Gong practitioners similar to those at the Sujiatun Concentration Camp from happening again at the Duyun Prison in Guizhou Province.
