(Clearwisdom.net) Huaihua Brainwashing Center in Hunan Province was set up by Zeng Qinghong, an officer in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), who allocated special funds for the center. Over the years it has been used as a private prison for brainwashing and persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. Many practitioners from Huaihua area have been detained there, and were beaten, brainwashed, and force-fed drugs that can destroy the central nervous system.

Huaihua Brainwashing Center

Huaihua Brainwashing Center is located near Hutianqiao District. It is a residence building owned by a color printing factory. The building includes two units, each has twenty apartments. The apartment is roughly 80 to 90 square meters with two bedrooms and a living room. The building is enclosed by a wall and equipped with an iron gate. The dining hall is in a separate building. From outside it looks pretty much like an ordinary residence building, but each apartment's window is sealed with an anti-theft metal net

More Than Ten Practitioners Detained

In 2007, more than 10 Falun Gong practitioners from Chenxi County were detained in the Huaihua Brainwashing Center. They were forced to do physical labor, watch videos defaming Falun Dafa, and write three statements. The names of some of the detainees are Mr. Liu Yuanbo, Mr. Yu Shaoqi, Ms. Gong Huamei, and Mr. Ou Jiafa.

Mr. Yu Shaoqi, Ms. Gong Huamei and Mr. Liu Yuanbo were beaten and sexually assaulted at Huaihua. The original report of the torture of these practitioners can be seen at:


Mr. Ou Jiafa Force-fed Drugs

A middle-aged male doctor and a young female nurse forced elderly practitioner Mr. Ou Jiafa to take a drug that damaged his central nervous system. Mr. Ou Jiafa still shows symptoms of the drug's toxicity, such as drooling, inability to speak clearly, and walking slowly.

Mr. Zhang Zhimin Given Unknown Psychotropic Drug

In September 2010, Zhou Yongkang, a top officer from the CCP central government who is in charge of persecuting Falun Gong, went to Huaihua City, Hunan Province for inspections. Soon after, the persecution there escalated.

One day, at approximately 11 a.m., Xiang Shenggui, the head of Yuanling County 610 Office; Ren Guilin, Zheng Ping, and Mi Zhiqiang, officials from the local State Security Bureau; Chen Yong, Deputy Town Head of Yuanling Town and Deputy Chief of Yuanling Town Police Bureau, and about three other officials arrested Mr. Zhang Zhimin, put him in a car, and took him to the Huaihua Brainwashing Center. On the same day, they also arrested Mr. Zhang Zhengcai, a male practitioner from Qijiaping Town, Yuanling County.

Mr. Zhang Zhimin, who is employed at Yuanling Town government office, has been persecuted for a long time. He was suspended from work and his salary was reduced. He lives on a very small salary.

In the brainwashing center, Mr. Zhang Zhimin was forced to watch videos that defame Falun Dafa. Because he refused to give up the practice of Falun Gong, he was tortured and seemed to develop high blood pressure. He was also force-fed unknown psychotropic drugs.

A male doctor in his 20s or 30s from the Huaihua Psychiatric Hospital was sent to the brainwashing center to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. That hospital is also known as Huahua No. 4 People's Hospital, and Ms. Chen Chujun, a young female practitioner, was persecuted to death there. In the brainwashing center, the doctor forced practitioners to swallow small yellow pills. Mr. Zhang Zhimin became weak all over, began sweating, and felt drowsy. One of the guards claimed that the drug was for treating high blood pressure.

After Mr. Zhang Zhimin was arrested, his relatives tried many times to obtain his release. Eventually, he was released and returned home.
