Falun Gong Practitioners Tortured at Hebei Province Female Prison
(Clearwisdom.net) In the summer of 2005, Hebei Province Female Prison was newly constructed and all Falun Gong practitioners illegally sentenced in Hebei Province were gradually transferred there for concentrated detention and persecution. On February 25, 2006, 32 remaining Falun Gong practitioners from Hebei Province Taihang Female Prison were transferred to the new Hebei Province Female Prison. Currently, there are over 200 Falun Gong practitioners detained there. This prison is located at Shitong Street, Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province. There are many evil prison policewomen who are deployed from other prisons. The policewomen bully and instigate inmates to curse, beat and torture those steadfast Falun Gong practitioners.
Falun Gong practitioners are tortured mentally by means of traps and allures and physically tortured by being forced to stand day and night and being deprived of sleep. The police force practitioners to write so-called "four statements". Even practitioners who are seniors, such as 67 year old Zhao Wenlan arent spared as long as they keep up their belief in Falun Gong. The police utilize the criminal inmates to closely monitor Falun Gong practitioners for long terms, not allowing them to speak with anyone and depriving them of personal freedom.
Yu Jingxias body extremely frail, her family appealing for her release on bail for medical treatment
Practitioner Yu Jingxia from Shijiazhuang City was illegally sentenced to 10 years in prison. She was targeted for persecution because she refused to give up her belief in Falun Gong and be brainwashed and transformed. She is now very frail and suffers from severe heart disease from the persecution. According to insider information, she is now being treated with intravenous injections in the prison. Her family is appealing for her release on bail for medical treatment.
Yu Jingxia is a resident of Bolin North District, Shijiazhuang City. She used to have a happy family and both husband and wife practiced Falun Gong. They owned a clothing store and enjoyed a prosperous business.
After July 20, 1999, her happy family life was shattered. On September 28, 2001, her husband, Zhang Lingjiang, was arrested in Kaida Apartment Complex on Gongnong Street. He was then sentenced to 10 years in prison and detained in Hebei Province Baoding Prison.
Yu Jingxia was forced to become homeless and wander the streets to avoid arrest and persecution by the police. Her teenage daughter also became homeless and has been taken care of by Yu Jingxias younger sister.
On the afternoon of January 19, 2004, Yu Jingxia went to visit her relatives at the clothing store and was arrested by the police from Xinhua Police Station Branch who were waiting there. She was detained in the Second Detention Center of Shijiazhuang City. Yu Jingxia went on hunger strike to protest the illegal arrest and inhuman torture by the police. She suffered extreme weight loss to the point of being beyond recognition. Her legs became badly swollen and she could not walk by herself. She also had other complications and her internal organs were damaged. The Xinhua Police Station Branch feared that she might die in their hands and released her. On the morning of April 29, 2004, Xinhua Police Station Branch, in spite of her fever and fragile health condition, abducted Yu Jingxia from her grandfathers home and sent her to the Second Detention Center of Shijiazhuang City. Yu Jingxia was sentenced to 10 years in prison and is currently detained and persecuted in Hebei Province Female Prison.
Bai Yuzhi not able to take care of herself, not allowed bail for medical treatment
Falun Gong practitioner Bai Yuzhi is over 40 years old and was a commissar of the Chinese Peoples Political Consultative Conference of Jingxing County, Hebei Province. She is detained in Hebei Province Female Prison. Her health is in bad condition and she was on the verge of death quite a few times. She lost her eyesight and is not able to take care of herself in daily life. Her family has appealed for her release on bail for medical treatment but their request was rejected by prison authorities.
Bai Yuzhi was arrested and sentenced to forced labor several times for continuing to believe in Falun Gong. She was detained in Kaiping Forced Labor Camp in Tangshan City of Hebei Province, where she suffered all kinds of inhuman tortures. She went on a hunger strike for over 100 days. Her family and friends appealed to various authorities and she was released on bail for medical treatment. At home, before she was able to recover, the police started harassing her. She was forced to become homeless to avoid harassment and further persecution.
In August of 2002, Bai Yuzhi was abducted from her residence in Shijiazhuang City and detained in the Second Detention Center of Shijiazhuang City. In the detention center, she went on a hunger strike to protest her arrest and suffered severe deterioration of her health. On April 10, 2003, she started to vomit blood and was force-fed by the police. Her nose was broken and she nearly lost her eyesight. She could not walk by herself and had to be carried by the person that was force-feeding her. When the Second Detention Center authorities reported her situation as "critically ill", the 610 Office still declined her familys request to release her on bail for medical treatment. The 610 Office sentenced her to 4 years in prison. On May 19, 2003, Bai Yuzhi and Wang Yunman were detained in the Second Female Prison of Shijiazhuang City and later transferred to Hebei Province Female Prison.
Bai Yuzhi started a hunger strike in September of 2002 and was force-fed to the point that she almost died. She vomited blood and became very frail. Her body swelled and she could not see anything from either eye. She could only lie on the bed and could not take care of herself in daily life. It has been 3 years up to now. Her family has appealed several times for her release on bail for medical treatment, yet the prison authorities have declined their appeal using the excuse "not being allowed by the higher authorities."
In March this year, the international media exposed the startling behind-the-scenes plotting with respect to the harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and then cremating them to destroy the evidence. According to insider information, Hebei Province Female Prison has also participated behind the scenes in such crimes. We appeal to the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong to pay attention to the criminal acts of the Hebei Province Female Prison.
