Cases of Persecution at Masanjia Forced Labor Camp in Liaoning Province
(Clearwisdom.net) During the past eight years, Falun Dafa practitioners who were illegally detained at the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp suffered inhuman tortures at the hands of the guards. The following are some of the recorded cases:
In 2005, as a protest, Falun Dafa practitioners Ms. Liu Guifang, Ms. He Guirong, and Ms. Zhou Ping refused to perform forced labor and stayed in bed. Guards Liu Cunjie, Yang Kuili, and others, dragged them from their beds by their hair. If practitioners refuse to wear the prison uniform (because they are not criminals), they are punished by not being allowed to use the restroom. The following practitioners were punished for various breaches of prison regulations: Ms. Wang Hong, from Huludao was locked in a bathroom until 1:00 a.m.; Ms. Zhou Ping and Ms. Li Lijun were locked in a room and were not allowed to wash for several days; Ms. Wang Shulan (from Tieling), Ms. Liu Huarong (from Shenyang), and Ms. Liu Guifang (from Dandong) were beaten by police because they refused to wear the prison uniform. Several practitioners went on hunger strikes in protest, including Ms. Liu Huarong (Shenyang), Ms. Ren Yun (from Jinzhou), Ms. Wang Min (from Dalian), Ms. Liu Guifang (Dandong), and Ms. Li Yuping (Shenyang). They were barbarically force-fed.
In 2006, Masanjia Forced Labor Camp used various methods to persecute more than 60 Falun Dafa practitioners and tried to "transform" them.
Ms. Liang Qizhen, a practitioner from Tieling, was beaten by guard Liu Yong twice because she was helping another practitioner, Ms. Cheng Hua (Dalian), who was in poor health. Ms. Liang's head was swollen and she had black eyes due to the beating. She was also punished by being forced to stand for a long time.
Ms. Li Chunhua (from Fushun) was often punished by being forced to stand. Ms. Liu Qiuying (Dalian) and Ms. Li Shaohua (Fushun) were punished by being forced to stand by guards Zhang Huan and Ren Hong because they did not recite the "30 rules." Ms. Wang Guixiang (Dalian) had high blood pressure (120-210). She was handcuffed for more than 4 hours simply because she refused to take any medicine. After taking the medicine she experienced some side effects, and refused to continue taking it. Then, Director Wang Xiaofeng and Deputy Director Shi Yu forced Ms. Wang to take the medicine.
Practitioners Ms. Shi Guirong (Shenyang) and Ms. Wang Lanfeng (Dalian) were force-fed with unknown drugs. The guards shouted, "We will destroy your gong!" Ms. Shen Ruolin (Fushun) was locked up in solitary confinement for more than a month. After she was let out, she could not take care of herself for quite a while, and for the next six months her hands and feet were constantly numb.
Jilin Dafa practitioner Ms. Mu Chunmei's teeth were broken after she was force fed on hunger strike. During the 50 days that she was on her hunger strike, she was tortured as authorities attempted to "transform" her. Prison authorities refused to allow her family members to visit.
Practitioner Ms. Jiang Jie (Fushun) was locked up multiple times because she tried to leave in protest of her illegal detention. She went on a hunger strike and the staff tried to force-feed her, perforating her stomach in the process. Ms. Gao Fuling (Dalian) was also tortured and locked up in solitary confinement multiple times. Ms. Liu Xiufeng (from Chaoyang) was beaten and tortured because they discovered she had Master's lecture notes with her. People who participated in the persecution include Liu Yong, Chen Jingmin, Li Mingdong, Yan (surname), Feng (surname), Zhang Jun, Ma Qishan, Wang Qi and Li Jun.
Two practitioners from Jingzhou who are still illegally detained at Nasanjia are Ms. Li Feng Jun and Ms. Xu Huiping.
Currently there are about 100 Falun Dafa practitioners being illegally detained at Masanjia Forced Labor Camp suffering persecution. About 20 of them are living among ordinary prisoners and are forced to do heavy labor. Their "normal" working hours are from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and from 5:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. If they do not finish the assigned jobs in time, they are forced to continue until the work load is done.
This is only the tip of the iceberg of the ongoing persecution at Masanjia Forced Labor Camp.
