Nearly 300 Practitioners Currently Suffer from the Cruel Conditions at Shandong Women's Prison
(Clearwisdom.net) In Jinan City, Shandong Province, at the northeastern corner of the intersection of South Industrial Road and Huaxin Road in the Licheng District, there is a group of white buildings behind a high wall covered at the top with barbed wire. Not far from the wall there is a watchtower guarded by fully armed police on patrol. This is the Shandong Province Women's Prison, where nearly three hundred Falun Gong practitioners are currently being illegally detained.
There is no way that an outside person can find its main gate. People can only see a south-facing entrance with a sign saying "Shandong Province Xingye Development Company." Inside the gate, many cars inscribed with words relating to the judicial system remind people that this is the Women's Prison.
This is the outside of the so-called "modern civilized prison" -- a name used by the party's justice department. It disguises unspeakable atrocities and unimaginable suffering.
Since 2000 in Shandong Women's Prison, Warden Yi Guangxia, Deputy Warden Li Shuying, and Commissar Kui Jianhua, have actively followed the wicked party and persecuted Falun Gong practitioners. Falun Gong practitioners who refused to "transform"or those who resumed their practice after being forced to quit, would be detained continuously in solitary cells.
The solitary cell is about two meters wide and four meters long. In the room, there is a bed 40 centimeters high which is made of cement. There is also a water tap and basin, and the walls are covered with quakeproof material. It is very cold in winter. It is even more uncomfortable in summer because the summer in Jinan City is very hot. Anyone in this place will be covered with sweat and have difficulty breathing. Furthermore, there are a lot of mosquitoes there in the summer. When Falun Gong practitioners are locked in this solitary cell, they are given pickled vegetables for all three meals daily. Each week, for three and half days prisoners receive regular buns (125 grams each and one per meal); and for three and half days they receive small buns (as small as golf ball and only one per meal). The criminal inmates often follow the guards' orders to beat practitioners in exchange for getting their prison terms reduced.

On the east side there is no sign, Shandong Province Men's Prison. Many inhumane tragedies are deeply buried here.
