(Clearwisdom.net) On February 28, 2009, personnel at the Hefei Women's Forced Labor Camp informed Ms. Lu Shuling's family that Lu Shuling had schizophrenia, and requested that they come and get her. When she got home on March 1, she did not even recognize her own daughter!

Dafa Practitioner Lu Shuling

Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Lu Shuling, from Dangshan County, Anhui Province, was arrested by police officers from Bengbu, Anhui Province, while traveling by train on October 20, 2007. She was first detained at the Bengbu Railroad Detection Center, and then sent to the Hefei Women's Forced Labor Camp, where she was persecuted.

Dafa practitioners detained in the Second Team of Hefei Women's Forced Labor Camp were made to work in the workshop from 5:00 a.m. until past 9:00 p.m. every day. The workshop previously manufactured various types of paper handbags, then changed to making umbrellas and umbrella stands. Since April 2008, practitioners in the labor camp have been forced to manufacture computer connecting wires. The workshop is on the first floor, but is not visible from the outside because it is surrounded by high perimeter walls. In summer, there is a toxic smell everywhere in the workshop, but prison wardens in the labor camp disregard the workers' safety to make high profits.

In the winter, after Lu Shuling had finished each full day of work, she was forced to stand until 2:00 or 3:00 a.m. Labor camp guards did not allow any of her family to visit her, and the prison guards even told tales about her to her family.

The prison guards didn't allow Falun Dafa practitioners to talk, use the restroom on time, or leave stipulated areas. Dafa practitioners who refused to be "transformed," or refused to write "thought reports" were closely followed and monitored around the clock. The people who were assigned to monitor the practitioners were allowed to berate them, torture them, deprive them of use of the restroom, deprive them of sleep, and disallow contact with anyone. Every day, the practitioners are forced to "study" various "transformation" materials and undergo brainwashing.

Prior to Lu Shuling developing schizophrenia as a result of mistreatment, Fang Cuie, a Dafa practitioner from Tongling, was also brutally tortured and mentally tormented. Another practitioner, Ms. Fang, also developed mental disorders and was then released.
