The Second Division of Xinhua Forced Labor Camp specifically detained and persecuted Falun Gong practitioners. Su Xin, chief of the Second Division; Long and Gao Yunyuan, deputy chiefs; and guard You Ning incited drug offenders to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. They forced the practitioners to do hard labor for more than ten hours each day.
Below are the means used in the Second Division to persecute Falun Gong practitioners.
1) The practitioners were prohibited from using the restroom, talking, buying food, or meeting with their families. The guards assigned three drug offenders to monitor one practitioner. The guards used
the reduction of their terms as bait to incite the drug offenders to beat and abuse the practitioners. Although there were camcorders installed in each cell for monitoring purposes, the guards pretended that they knew nothing.
2) The practitioners were deprived of sleep and rest. They were forced to stand in military posture each day and were not allowed to take a rest at noon. At night, the cell mates went to bed at 9:30 p.m., but the practitioners were only allowed to go to bed at 11:30 p.m., or even 2 a.m., and had to get out of bed at 5 a.m., one hour earlier than their cell mates.
3) The guards forced the practitioners to sit on a small bench and did not allow any of them to move. Otherwise, they would be beaten and abused by the controlling drug offenders. They were also forced to walk in military step and run.
4) The practitioners were forced to do hard labor for more than ten hours a day. In addition, they were often forced to work overtime. They made products for the Hongrun Electronics Co., Ltd.. The company had two technicians stationed in the labor camp. They were Wu Pingrong and Tian. They colluded with the guards to brutally enslave the practitioners. The practitioners who could not finish their quota were not allowed to sleep, were forced to stand a long time, or had their sentences extended. The practitioners often subjected to persecution included Mr. Yang Shuzhong, Mr. Luo Hongqin, Mr. Deng Qixing, Mr. Yang Linxing, Mr. Xu Yongliang, Mr. Zeng Yuxian, and Mr. Meng Hualong.
5) The guards hit the practitioners with electric batons and detained them separately.
