Mr. Lu Jinlong Brutally Tortured in Shanghai's Tilanqiao Prison
(Clearwisdom.net) Officer Li Yongfang (male) of the education section of Shanghai's Tilanqiao Prison encouraged and conspired with Chief Tang and Chief Jiang of the First Prison Area to brutally beat and mistreat the Falun Gong practitioners who enter the prison. Beating and kicking are daily routines here. In the intense summer heat, practitioners are given only three small cups of water to drink each day. Practitioner Mr. Lu Jinlong, imprisoned at the First Prison Area of Tilanqiao Prison, was beaten by the jail guard, who broke his arm. He is still in a forced labor camp.
Mr. Lu Jinlong, 40, lived at 8 Gongfu Third Village, Baoshan District, Shanghai. When he went to Beijing in November 2000 to appeal and protest the Chinese Communist Party's illegal ban and persecution of Falun Gong at Tiananmen Square, he was arrested by the local police who beat, kicked, and bludgeoned him with a police baton. Later, the Shanghai 610 Office imprisoned him at a detention center for one month. In September 2001, Mr. Lu was taken by local 610 Office to the brainwashing center that fronts as a legal system school that the Shanghai Political and Judiciary Committee established in Qingpu District. Because he firmly resisted the Chinese Communist Party's lies and slander, the CCP personnel fabricated charges, claiming that Mr. Lu distributed Falun Gong truth clarification materials in Chongming County. He was taken into custody to Chongming Detention Center by the Shanghai Legal System School and was "illegally sentenced" to two years of forced labor.
The CCP police at Dafeng Forced Labor Camp in Jiangsu Province brutalized Mr. Lu. In the severely cold winter, he was only given one pair of cloth shoes, two pairs of pants, and two unpadded garments. He was forced to sit on a small, backless stool from 5:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. He was only given a thin cotton-padded quilt for his bed. He was given only cold water to wash, causing severe frostbite to both his knees and inflammation of his joints, which made it difficult for him to walk.
In 2002, the entire squadron of illegally imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners in Dafeng Labor Camp in Jiangsu Province was moved to Qingpu Forced Labor Camp in Shanghai. One day while Mr. Lu was on the drill ground going through the collective drill, he did the Falun Gong exercises and shouted loudly, "Falun Dafa is good!" Police commanders Feng and Shi beat and kicked him. They shocked him on the top of his head, his ears, and nose with electric batons of several hundred thousand volts for long periods of time, causing these areas to bleed and him to lose consciousness. He was carried to the strictly disciplined team of the labor camp, where he was not allowed to bathe, wash his feet, or drink water. During the next six months, he was forced to sit on a very small, bumpy, home-made torture instrument for 17 hours every day and was not allowed to move. If he moved, he was beaten.
In 2003, Mr. Lu was returned to police commander Feng's team. The police coerced the criminal inmates to torture him. Mr. Lu was deprived of sleep for four nights. The criminals beat him until his nose was black, his eyes swollen, and his thighs purple from bruising. These goons, who were incited by the police, burned his face and lips with cigarette butts and sprayed insecticide into both his eyes. They stripped him naked and whipped him with a leather belt and finally put him on the tiger bench to forcefully stretch his ligaments. This resulted in a groin injury, which made standing and walking nearly impossible. Despite this, Mr. Lu was still forced to sit for long periods of time, not allowed to move, and if he did move, he would be beaten. Even after developing bed sores and boils on his buttocks from sitting, he was still still forced to sit and was denied medical atention. He was also forced to stand still for long periods of time until his legs were swollen and he could not stand anymore.
In July 2005, Mr. Lu was distributing Falun Gong truth clarification materials and was illegally arrested. The personnel of Baoshan District 610 Office forced him to stand all day for the interrogation and deprived him of sleep for three nights. During the court hearing process in Baoshan District Court, the judge, Yu Minfang denied Mr. Lu Jinlong the right to plead an innocent defense for himself, deprived him of his right to a defense, and sentenced him to three years of imprisonment.
