Baimalong Forced Labor Camp in Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province Detains Falun Dafa Practitioner Ms. Zhu Guilin Past the Legal Limit
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhu Guilin from Shimen County, Changde City, Hunan Province was arrested and sentenced to a two-and-a-half-year term in the Zhuzhou City Baimalong Forced Labor Camp in 2004. She was brutally tortured during the detention. Currently, the so-called "forced-labor detention period" has already passed, but the forced labor camp still refuses to release her.
Forty-three-year-old Zhu Guilin had been arrested and illegally detained several times since the persecution began. She always persisted in practicing Falun Gong and clarifying the truth to people, telling them that Falun Gong has been wrongly persecuted. She was brutally persecuted and even injected with unknown drugs as a means of persecution by the Shimen County People's Hospital.
In August 2000, Zhu Guilin went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong. She was arrested and taken back to Changde City by the Political and Security Section of the Shimen County Police Department, and then illegally detained for three months, until her family paid the 3,000 yuan fine that the authorities imposed on her.
In February 2001, Ms. Zhu Guilin was arrested at home and taken to a detention center by the Shimen County 610 Office. She held a hunger strike to protest her illegal detainment and persecution. After her initial detainment, Ms. Zhu was sent to the Psychiatric Section of the Shimen City People's Hospital and injected with unknown nerve-damaging drugs. As a result, she displayed symptoms of dementia. The 610 Office lied about her condition and said she was like this because she practiced Falun Gong. After being persecuted in the hospital for more than a month, Ms. Zhu was sent back to the detention center. Due to the nerve-damaging drugs, she could not sit or stand, and it was very difficult for her to walk into the detention center. After being detained for more than three months, and in very fragile condition, Zhu Guilin was released.
On October 8, 2004, Ms. Zhu Guilin was arrested again by the police and her home was ransacked at the same time. She was sentenced to a two-and-a-half-year-term in the Baimalong Forced Labor Camp in Zhuzhou City, and has been there ever since. The Baimalong Forced Labor Camp has been under the international spotlight and has been accused by international human rights organizations for its brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. More than 1,000 Falun Gong practitioners' family members have banded together to appeal to the international community to investigate and stop the brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in the Baimalong Forced Labor Camp. Zhu Guilin has also been brutally persecuted because of not cooperating with the forced labor camp's attempts at "transformation." At one point, she was forbidden from sleeping for three consecutive days and nights.
In July 2005, Ms. Zhu Guilin was beaten into a coma by the police and was sent to the Zhuzhou City Second People's Hospital for emergency rescue. She held a hunger strike from January to March 2007, and was brutally force-fed and injected with unknown drugs many times. Since she had been injected many times, the doctor had difficulty finding a blood vessel to safely give her another injection.
Even while Ms. Zhu was in this desperate condition, the police incited the criminals assigned to watch her, to slap her during the injection. Her left wrist was injured during the process and the scars still remain today. Both of her hands were swollen and extremely cold. Under the long-term continuous torture, Ms. Zhu became so emaciated that her body looked seriously deformed.
The forced labor camp also added on the so-called "cost" of the injections to extort more money from her family members, as part of the expense of her supposed "care." The forced labor camp ended up extorting six-hundred yuan from her family.
The Baimalong Forced Labor Camp still refuses to release Zhu Guilin. Her family members are all very anxious. Her seventy-year-old mother went to Baimalong Forced Labor Camp from her hometown in Shimen County and asked the camp to release her daughter. We appeal to all people and to various international organizations to pay attention to Zhu Guilin's persecution at Baimalong Forced Labor Camp and to help in rescuing her as soon as possible.
