I Was Tortured and Forced into Slave Labor at Jinan First Female Prison in Shandong Province
(Clearwisdom.net) I was abducted to Jinan First Female Prison in October of 2002. Due to worrying about my being enslaved and tortured, my mother-in-law passed away on December 5 that year.
We were forced to do intense labor such as making clothes and sewing. The director of the fourth division Xu forced us to work in the basement, which was very humid. The conditions were terrible. My rheumatism, which had been cured through practicing Falun Gong, recurred under such harsh conditions.
We were forced to work from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 or 2:00 a.m. the next morning. The earliest quitting time was 12:00 a.m. Besides meal and toilet breaks, we worked non-stop. Because of my health condition, I was allowed to stop working at 10:00 p.m. There were 12 people per cell. Each practitioner was monitored by two inmates. If anything happened, the inmates would be held responsible and their scores would be deducted.
During the winter of 2005, as a result of severe torture, I was unable to move and half of my body was in great pain. When I was finally released in February of 2006, I was very weak and was diagnosed with late stage breast cancer.
The following are the accounts of tortures other practitioners suffered that I know of:
Dafa practitioner Du Jiqun is forty-seven years old. She is from Weifang area. She suffered stomach bleeding as a result of torture. The director of her division Xu knew of her condition but still forced her to work, causing her to faint.
Practitioner Li Xizhi is over 50 years old and she is from Yantai area. Because she refused to be brainwashed, she was put in solitary confinement and was forced to sleep on the floor. She was monitored by two inmates. The guards even incited inmates to beat her up.
Practitioner Chen Xiuling is over 40 years old and is from Shouguang area, Shandong province. She was sentenced to nine years in prison. She resisted the persecution, refused to wear the label and uniform for prisoners. As a result, she was stripped and put in solitary confinement in the winter for about two weeks. She was monitored by a video recording system.
