Torture of Women at the Shibalihe Female Forced Labor Camp: Strait Jackets Used to Break Arms, Shoulders, Elbows, Spines and Cause Agonizing Death
June 18, 2003
(Clearwisdom.net) June 19th report: on June 15, 2003, it was reported that beginning on April 22, 2003, the Shibalihe Female Labor Camp in Henan Province began using forced "reform" methods on determined Dafa practitioners. They have created specially constructed strait jackets for use as extremely brutal torture devices. The abuse of strait jackets, which are normally used to restrain violent mental patients, originated in the No. 3 Male Labor Camp in Xuchang City, Henan Province. Made of fine canvas, they are put on the victim from the front and tightened from behind the back. The sleeves are about 10 inches longer than the victim's arms, with straps on them.
They force determined Dafa practitioners to wear this jacket, and then cross and tie their arms behind their backs. Then they pull their arms up over their shoulders to the front of their chest, tie up the practitioners' legs and hang them up in the air from the windows. At the same time, they gag practitioners' mouths with cloth, put earphones in their ears and continuously play messages that slander Dafa. According to an eyewitness account, people who suffer this torture quickly sustain broken arms, tendons, shoulders, wrists and elbows. Those who endure this torture for a long time have completely broken spines, and they die in agonizing pain.
On May 22, a female Dafa practitioner around 40 years of age was tortured this way for one day and one night. When she was released from the strait jacket on May 23, her body was cold. In order to conceal their crime, the police ordered drug addicts, and criminals Yan Ping and Fu Jinyu to carry her body to a nearby hospital for an injection. Afterwards they claimed she died from a sudden illness and hastily cremated her body.
Since April 22, six Dafa practitioners have been tortured to death this way, including Zhang Yali, Zhang Baoju, Guan Ge. Their ages range from 40 to 60.
The arms of 53-year-old Dafa practitioner Wei Guirong from Zhenzhou City were permanently disabled. During this time, several Dafa practitioners on the top floor of the labor camp died from being hung up in the air.
Around 2:00 a.m. on June 4, Dafa practitioner Zhang Xiuhua from Zhenzhou City was hung up, and her neck sustained a deep cut mark that is still visible. Right now, Dafa practitioners are still being tortured.
It was learned that the guards at the No. 3 division ordered drug addicts Yan Ping and Fu Jinyu to force Dafa practitioners to wear this strait jacket which caused the death of six practitioners. The thugs secretly locked the two drug addicts in a room on the ground floor and didn't allow them to see anyone. On June 15, the authorities released the two criminals two months before their full term. Before their release, the No. 3 division chief Jiang Meili threatened the drug addicts, "Don't you dare divulge information about this death to anyone, or your families won't escape our severe punishment."
Since June, chief Liu of the Forced Labor Education Bureau in Henan Province has showed up frequently at the Shibalihe Female Labor Camp. He is in his 40's, with medium stature and large eyes. On June 14, he praised the two murderers and drugs addicts.
In order to forcibly "reform" Dafa practitioners, currently the labor camp has stopped normal operations and dispersed determined Dafa practitioners into different sections. They order criminals to maximally monitor and follow the practitioners, or they drag out the individual practitioners and brutally torture them. The information blockade is strict, and we cannot find out the names of the persecuted practitioners. Right now, more than 100 Dafa practitioners are being detained at the Shibalihe Female Labor Camp, and more than 20 are being tortured with the strait jacket. Their lives are constantly at risk. We call on the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong to please help rescue these Dafa practitioners. Dafa practitioners abroad, please make phone calls to clarify the truth and suppress the evil in other dimensions that is behind this outrage.
