Exposing Crimes Committed by Officials at Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp in Heilongjiang Province

February 01, 2007 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) On March 15, 2004, more than ten Falun Gong practitioners, including Mr. Liu Quanguo, Mr. Pan Mingzhen, Mr. Zhang Delong, and Mr. Piao Wansheng, were tortured in Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp. Camp education office head Wang You (male) and Third Ward deputy chief Ji (male, first name unknown) tried to coerce the practitioners to write the three statements renouncing Falun Gong. After the practitioners refused, guards ordered inmates to torture them. The inmates immersed the practitioners in ice-cold water for a long time, forced them to squat on and between two stools, and pummeled and kicked them brutally when the stools shook.

On April 20, 2004, Mr. Pan Mingzhen, then transferred to the First Ward, was steadfast against the mistreatment. When he refused to work overtime, Deputy Chief Yang Yu (male) beat him, pushed him to the ground, and shocked him with an electric baton for almost 20 minutes. Mr. Pan shouted, "Falun Dafa is good" to protest this persecution.

On March 23, 2005, Mr. Pan Mingzhen, then transferred to the Fifth Ward, was seen clarifying the truth to inmates by team chief Zhao Shuang (male). Zhao ordered several inmates to drag him into the office and beat him. Mr. Pan did not give up. He kept clarifying the truth even when two teeth were punched out. Now, some guards and inmates know that "Falun Dafa is good" as a result of his truth clarification.

On January 3, 2007, Mr. Pan Mingzhen was released after his illegal imprisonment. He shouted "Falun Dafa is good" in the doorway on his way out. Ward deputy chief Qiang Shengguo slapped his face twice and punched him in the chest twice, threatening to keep him in the camp. He was punched with so much force that Mr. Pan is still suffering chest pains. With dignity, Mr. Pan left the Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp.
