(Clearwisdom.net) (correspondent from Inner Mongolia) On September 2, 2007, Li Buhe, Commander of the local Domestic Security Division arrested Ms. Zhou Liying, a practitioner from Inner Mongolia. Later she was sentenced to two years of forced labor and now she is still detained in Group 3, Hohhot Women's Forced Labor Camp.
In the labor camp, as she refused to be transformed, she suffered physical punishments numerous times. Once she shouted "Falun Dafa Hao" (Falun Dafa is good) and "Zhen-Shan-Ren Hao" (Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good), and the guards took turns attacking her. She was not allowed to sleep for three consecutive days and not allowed to use the restroom for thirteen hours. Once the guards found that she was writing down "Falun Dafa Hao", they ordered her to stand for eight consecutive days, from December 24, 2008 (lunar date) to late at night on January 1, 2009 (lunar date). From January 18 (lunar date), the guards forced her to labor in the glove workshop for 15 hours a day. She couldn't see sunlight nor go to have lunch at noon. Every day she worked until 9:30 p.m.
Once CCP officials visited the labor camp, and Ms. Zhou Liying shouted loudly "Falun Dafa is good." Lv Junmei, who monitored her, beat her violently, kicked her, and pinched her neck. They did not allow her to use the restroom, wash her face or brush her teeth. One time, Ms. Zhou went to the restroom without permission; thus she suffered another violent beating after she returned. Chang Hong, Commander of Group 3 and two jail guards, Huang Xuhong and Jia Xiaoling, took every chance to beat Ms. Zhou violently.
Having been tortured physically and mentally, Ms. Zhou Liying lost 17 kilograms and became emaciated. She exhibited symptoms of several diseases. Ms. Zhou's relatives requested the labor camp to release her so she could receive medical care outside of the camp, but the guards refused their request. Moreover, the labor camp officials added two months to her detainment term because she refused to be transformed. The guards ordered drug abuser detainees to monitor her 24 hours a day and follow her closely wherever she went.
