The Second Women's Forced Labor Camp in Zibo City, Shandong Province, Turns Away Visits by Practitioners' Relatives
(Clearwisdom.net) On November 14, 2004, a relative and I went to visit my sister Zhu Lixing, who is unlawfully jailed with the fourth team at the Second Women's Forced Labor Camp in Zibo City, Shandong Province.
According to current regulations, visitors are entitled to meet with inmates as long as they have a valid ID. To my consternation, staff at the visitor's center turned me away, stating that I did not have a visitor's certificate from the local police station.
I said that I wanted to see the fourth team leader. The policewoman on duty told me that we could meet with the fourth team leader in the afternoon, during her duty hours. But we were advised to enter through the front office. We waited for more than one hour outside the prison doors. At 1:30 p.m. we entered the front office. A female security guard told us that to see the fourth team leader we had to register at the visitor's center.
We went again to the visitor's center. The door was closed and they refused to open it after we rang the bell. Two policewomen spoke to us through a small window on the security door. I told them that I wanted to see my sister and the fourth team leader. The policewoman was very rude and swore at us.
Before we could reply, they closed the small window on the security door.
This is the first time I have visited the labor camp since the Shandong Province Laixi City 610 Office sentenced my sister to forced labor. I had come a long way and was hoping to see her. I could not believe this crude and uncivilized treatment. My brother-in-law had visited twice and received the same treatment.
I am determined to file a lawsuit to help end this totally irrational persecution. I will name in the lawsuit the officers who persecute my sister and other Falun Dafa practitioners, as well as the Laixi 610 Office. I ask the United Nations and human rights organizations to do everything in their power to remedy this injustice and take notice of my sister and her child's predicaments. I'm requesting that they help me gain my sister's freedom from this labor camp. I also ask that they help bring the persecutors to justice.
