(Clearwisdom.net) Xu Baoyu, head of the Yuemingshan Forced Labor Camp in Anshan City, Liaoning Province, actively participated in the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners. He died on May 5, 2007, at the central hospital of Anshan City of a brain hemorrhage.

Xu Baoyu deliberately broke the law when he participated in, arranged for, and encouraged his subordinates and criminal inmates to persecute the illegally detained practitioners. Three practitioners were tortured to death and many were injured in the Anshan labor camp. During the past eight years of persecution, Xu Baoyu committed countless crimes. The following are just some of the deeds for which he was responsible.

On the morning of May 8, 2001, prison guards Xu Baoyu, Zhang Zhenyang, and Zhang Yongli directly ordered and permitted prisoners to beat practitioners. Several dozen prisoners swarmed and dragged practitioners to an office and started beating them. Afterwards, they cuffed the practitioners' hands behind their backs. The entire male "Falun Gong brigade" was filled with the sounds of beatings and screaming. This commotion disturbed the entire forced labor camp. Practitioners were beaten so severely that they sustained serious injuries, including internal bleeding, facial disfigurement, and so on. The guards then sent the practitioners to various other brigades to further monitor and "transform" them. The methods used to try to "transform" them included making them sit on small benches around 10 cm long, 3 cm wide and 10 cm high. Practitioners were forced to sit for 16-17 hours per day, while the beatings and verbal abuse continued.

Not long after that, they started holding mandatory brainwashing sessions for persistent practitioners. They tied practitioners to beds so that they could not move. Practitioners were also not allowed to use the bathroom or sleep. The guards covered practitioners' heads with safety helmets. If they fell asleep, the guards would punch and hit the safety helmets with sticks. The strikes created strong vibrations affecting the practitioners' heads and ears. They also used cymbals to make loud noises to hurt practitioners' eardrums and handcuffed practitioners to a heater so that they could not stand up nor sit down for the whole night. Many practitioners in the second brigade were injured this way.

In 2003 Education Section Chief Zhang Yongli and other guards brutally tortured Wang Guoyue, a practitioner from the Lishan District of Anshan City, by hanging him up and covering his head with a metal helmet. Then they tortured and beat him for over an hour until he passed out. He was injured internally and could not eat or drink. Fearing he might die at the labor camp, the guards sent him home. Mr. Wang Guoyue died on May 18, 2003, at the age of 44.

For the past eight years, practitioners have kept on clarifying the truth of Falun Dafa to Xu Baoyu, hoping to steer him away from persecuting Dafa. Two months ago, they still advised him to be kindhearted on posted placards; however, he continued the torture and persecution. If human beings do not punish a crime, Heaven will. Good will be rewarded and evil will meet with retribution. After Xu Baoyu died, Yuemingshan Forced Labor Camp held a memorial service for him. What was the use of it? The money and power exchanged for persecuting Falun Dafa could not be used even in this life, and he will now suffer endlessly for his crimes.

Since the persecution of Falun Dafa began in 1999, one fifth of the 300 prison guards at the Yuemingshan Forced Labor Camp have died from different causes.

Here we advise those who have committed wrongdoings and are still persecuting Falun Dafa disciples to stop doing evil. As practitioners, we cultivate "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance." We don't have enemies and we understand the suffering of everyone in the world. The methods used by the CCP to persecute Falun Gong practitioners are extremely evil. You are actually being exploited--and therefore persecuted--by the CCP. Although we don't hate you, you have already committed crimes by assisting the Party. You should cease your wrongdoings, quit the CCP, and step forward to help stop the persecution of Falun Dafa in China. We wish the best for you. We sincerely hope you will survive the process of Heaven's destruction of the CCP.
