(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Jia Jianfeng, a 40-year-old Dafa practitioner from Jilin City, was arrested on June 18, 2006 by officials from the Political and Judiciary Committee in the Longtan District and security officers from his work place, the Jilin Chemicals & Building Materials Co. Ltd. He was taken to the Yulin Brainwashing Center in Jilin City.

Mr. Jia Jianfeng held a hunger strike and refused to give up Dafa. Officials from Jilin City's 610 Office manipulated the court system and sentenced Jia Jianfeng to 18 months of forced labor. Jia Jianfeng was sent to Yinmahe Forced Labor Camp located in Jiutai City, Jilin Province. He was extremely weak and had to be carried to the labor camp. He continued a hunger strike at the labor camp and died there ten days later.

The labor camp authorities are still threatening his family, blocking information, and intimidating them to stay in line with the regime. Following are details:

Jia Jianfeng was a technician at the Jilin Chemicals & Building Materials Co. Ltd. He started practicing Falun Gong in 1995 and benefited physically and mentally from the practice. For persisting in his belief in Truth, Compassion and Forbearance, the persecutors sentenced him to two years of forced labor in October 2000 and then held him at the Huanxiling Forced Labor Camp in Jilin City. He was later transferred to the Yinmahe Forced Labor Camp, but finished the term outside of the labor camp.

The officials found a copy of Zhuan Falun on Jia Jianfeng in September 2001 when he was at work. They again sent him to the Yinmahe Forced Labor Camp. He was released in October 2002. His wife, meanwhile, could not withstand the tremendous pressure and divorced him. She took their child and moved to Tiedong, the Longtan District.

Officials at the Jilin Chemicals & Building Materials Co. Ltd talked to a Dafa practitioner in early August 2006. The official accidentally divulged Jia Jianfeng’s death during the conversation He said to the practitioner, "A Falun Gong practitioner [Jia Jianfeng] from our workplace refused to "reform" at the brainwashing center. He stayed on a hunger strike and died over a dozen days after he was sent to the Jiutai Forced Labor Camp. Did you go to his funeral?"

This Dafa practitioner didn’t know anything about Jia Jianfeng’s death and didn’t go to Jia Jianfeng’s funeral. Afterwards, officials from this practitioner’s work unit told him, "I’m sure that you would have been arrested and sentenced to prison if you had gone to the funeral that day. I was waiting for you outside your apartment at 3'clock in the morning."

Someone had seen lots of police cars inside the Longdong Neighborhood District in Tiedong where Jia Jianfeng used to live. The police eventually learned that Jia Jianfeng had moved to Xinjilin, so they went and surrounded his new residence.

Police arrested and ransacked Dafa practitioner Zhou Chengyi's home the day following the above conversation. He also works at the Jilin Chemicals & Building Materials Co. Ltd., and was later sent to the Jilin City Detention Center. The reason for his arrest: he had advised people to quit the Communist Party, but [we assume] it was also because the officials feared Zhou Chengyi would reveal the information that Jia Jianfeng had died. So they made up an excuse and arrested Zhou Chengyi.

Some of Jia Jianfeng’s fellow Dafa practitioners called Jia Jianfeng’s parents in Daan City on August 11, 2006 acting on behalf of his superiors at his work place, to confirm his death. They asked the parents’ opinion on Jia Jianfeng’s funeral. A man who had answered the phone handed it to Jia Jianfeng’s father. When a Dafa practitioner asked the father, "What do you think about Jia Jianfeng’s funeral?" he replied, "Well, what happened has happened. We don’t think anything about it." He immediately changed his tone and hastily said, "Jia Jianfeng was doing well at the labor camp…" The father didn’t sound very sincere and was obviously trying to evade the truth about Jia Jianfeng’s torture death. He was also stalling, leading us to believe that his home was under police surveillance. Judging from the father's unnatural demeanor, he must have known about Jia Jianfeng’s death. Jia Jianfeng’s parents had a totally different attitude when someone called their home in late June, when Jia Jianfeng was first taken to a brainwashing center.

It is estimated that Jia Jianfeng died in late July, over a dozen days after he was sent to the Yinmahe Forced Labor Camp. The lawless officials are strictly blocking all information.

Some of us fellow practitioners informed Jia Jianfeng’s ex-wife about his death. She could hardly believe it.

The Yinmahe Forced Labor Camp has been closely following the wicked Party and Jiang Zemin's group in persecuting Falun Gong since July 20, 1999. The Jilin Province Party Committee and the provincial government designated the Yinmahe Forced Labor Camp as the brainwashing base for Jilin Province in December 2000. Several hundred Falun Gong practitioners from Siping City, Jilin City, Songyuan City, and Yanji City were sent to that camp. The Yinmahe Forced Labor Camp carries out a premeditated and systematic persecution of the illegally detained Falun Gong practitioners. It is a brainwashing facility that deprives Chinese citizens of their freedom of belief and human rights.

It has been verified that nine Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured to death at that camp. They are: Sun Shiwen from Jiutai City, Wang Hongtian from Dehui City, Li Yutong from Dehui City, Jiang Laiyou from Jiaohe City, Xiao Jinsong from Jilin City, Li Rongxian from Huadian City, Sun Shizhong from Songyuan City, Sun Quwen from Jiutai City and Yang Lidong. Many practitioners were also injured or disabled from torture suffered here.
