Practitioners Being Held in the Pingantai Labor Camp in Gansu Province
My heart mourned after hearing the shocking news that fellow practitioner Song Yanzhao was beaten to death at Pingantai Labor Camp. Dafa practitioners, determined in practicing Dafa, protecting Dafa, and offering people salvation, are being thrown into hell to endure endless sufferings. Even under these circumstances, practitioners continue to use their compassion and tolerance to clarify the truth. These selfless actions are moving the heavens.
However, in order to protect themselves, the police would rather be Jiang Zemin's running dogs and openly persecute and torment practitioners using the cruelest and most inhumane methods. Currently, Pingantai Labor Camp has illegally jailed close to 200 practitioners; those of whom are suffering tortures from jail guards at every moment.
Below is a list of some practitioners who are currently jailed in Pingantai Labor Camp:
Li Jiankui (male): 51-year-old practitioner from Linxia County. Not long after July 20, 1999, the police broke into Li Jiankui's home, raided and smashed his belongings. Li was brought to the detention center and savagely beaten. He had to carry a box of Dafa information leaflets on his head after refusing to step on it. During the New Year of 2000, he was arrested by the Linxia County police. They handcuffed him to a sofa in a hotel and then stole and spent the only few hundred dollars he had. A few days later, he was brought to the Linxia Administrative Center and was violently beaten by the chief of the Linxia Police Department on numerous occasions. They hit his leg with a steel baton, causing him to be unable to walk for days. Later he was illegally detained at Linxia Detention Center. At the detention center, he was beaten and cruelly tortured numerous times.
One day it was snowing outside and Li Jiankui was ordered to stand in the snow for two hours until his whole body became numb. Another time during which prisoners were let out for exercise, a group of police surrounded him. They slapped, punched, kicked, and savagely stamped on him after he was pushed to the ground. One time, the chief ordered the police to handcuff his hands from behind with one hand on top and one below. They then forced a wooden rod that was about the diameter of a cup, between his hands and back. He was beaten until he fainted and beaten again after regaining consciousness. Later, the chief ordered ruffians from the same cell to beat him. More than ten ruffians lined up to take turns at beating him. Once, Li Jiankui was ordered to beat up a new inmate. When he refused, the wicked guards said to him, "If you don't hit him, we'll hit you." Thus, Li was beaten once again. The Linxia Police Department has jailed Li Jiankui in the detention center and tortured him for more than half a year. In addition, no relatives have been allowed to visit him during that time. Later, Li was sentenced to one year in labor camp and was transferred to the Pingantai Labor Camp in July 2000 to endure further tortures. At the labor camp, police Ma Wu, Wong Wenchang, and Wong Shenmin have all beaten him and also directed other ruffians to beat him.
