(Clearwisdom.net) For carrying a copy of Zhuan Falun with him, practitioner Mr.Wei Jianzhou of Yuncheng City, Shanxi Province, was arrested and imprisoned in Xindian Forced Labor Camp, where he started a hunger strike to protest. Guards then ordered drug addict inmates to persecute him.

Around May 2007, Gong Junsheng ordered the formation of a so-called "special group for the examination of a case" to persecute Mr. Wei specifically. The people in charge included Education Officer Zhang Junde and five drug addict inmates: Zhao Qing from Xishan, Taiyuan City; Wang Chenghu from Yangmingbao, Dai County; Wang Laicun from Dai County; Li Zhiwei from Hequ; and Chen Wenliang from Dai County. Zhao Qing was the head of the group, Wang Chenghu and Wang Laicun were major players, and Li Zhiwei and Chen Wenliang were coerced into participating.

Guard Zhang Junde once beat Chen Wenliang because Chen still had some conscience and did not want to persecute practitioners. Li Zhiwei and Chen Wenliang were even punished by Zhao Qing for not actively participating in the persecution. Zhao Qing was released about one month ahead of time for "outstanding" performance [in persecuting practitioners]. Drug addict Wang Laicun often persecuted practitioners. During the time he closely watched practitioner Mr. Yan Xipeng in Taiyuan City, he often beat, swore at, and verbally abused Mr. Yan.

When Mr. Wei Jianzhou was on a hunger strike, inmates Wang Chenyan and Wang Junqing, who were on duty at night, also participated in savagely force-feeding Mr. Wei. The sounds of beatings, swearing, and quarreling were heard every night. Sometimes the torture lasted past 4:00 a.m. and would resume at about 5:00 a.m. when Mr. Wei was forced to get up. Even during this one hour of "sleep time", he was also often tortured. After a few days Mr. Wei Jianzhou was completely disfigured from torture. Currently, he still can't get normal rest.

Xindian Forced Labor Camp in Shanxi Province imprisons and persecutes male Falun Gong practitioners from Shanxi Province. Since 1999, about 500 people have been persecuted there. The ten practitioners still imprisoned there are: Yan Xipeng and Li Wei from Taiyuan City, Tian Fusheng and Liu Hong from Datong City, Li Zhiyong from Yanquan, Zhang Wenbin, Bai Xinyan, Lu Chongxu, Wei Jianzhou in Yuncheng City, and Zhao Guocun from Baoding City, Hebei Province.

Those in charge of the 3rd Group:

Gong Junsheng from the Donghu Country Area, Shenchi County, is the head and Political Director.
Yao Hong from Linfen is the deputy political director.
Zhang Jiangang is the deputy head.
