(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Lu Kaili is being severely tortured at the Panjin Prison and his condition is unknown. The prison has refused his family's requests to visit him.
Mr. Lu had been sent to a forced labor camp twice in the past, because of his belief in the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. He was brutally tortured by both prison guards and criminal inmates while he was jailed at the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp at Shenyang and the Dalian Forced Labor Camp. On October 13, 2005, Mr. Lu was arrested by the Dalian Domestic Security Division at Paoyameili Courtyard. He was detained and beaten in the "small white building" specially designed by the Jiacun Domestic Security Department at Dalian. In April 2006, Mr. Lu was unlawfully sentenced to ten years in prison by the Liaoyang City Court. He was first jailed in the Group No. 2 at the Yingkou Prison and later transferred to the Fifth Ward at Panjin Prison on December 20, 2007.
Mr. Lu has already endured five years of torture in the Fifth Ward at Panjin Prison. When his family was visiting him this past August, they noticed large burns on his neck and chest. They asked Liu Wenzhen, the group leader of the fifth group in the Fifth Ward, about the injury. Liu Wenzhen quibbled, "He burned himself." Mr. Lu's family questioned him again and again about the injury. Finally Liu Wenzhen said, "I will go ask later."
It was recently learned that Mr. Lu had been sent to the hospital on September 17, 2010. When his family asked to visit him, Liu Ling, a group leader of the fifth group in the Fifth Ward, said: "Lu Kaili broke the rules, and now he is in solitary confinement and my superior says that there will be no visitation." Mr. Lu's family asked about the rules that Mr. Lu broke, and which superior officer was responsible for the matter. Liu Ling did not give any details. Mr. Lu's family went to the office of Song Wanzhong, the Fifth Ward leader, and he told them, "Lu Kaili broke the rules, and now he is in solitary confinement. You cannot see him." He did not give any details, but only said, "We will notify his family if needed," and then left in a hurry.
In recent years, the Fifth Ward at the Panjin Prison has tortured many Falun Gong practitioners, resulting in many injuries and deaths. Mr. Huang Lizhong, from the Lianshan District of Huludao, (See http://www.clearwisdom.net/html/articles/2009/11/2/112037.html) passed away in October 2009. He was fatally injured from the torture conducted by the Fifth Ward leader, Wang Jianjun. The Fifth Ward leader used the excuse that Mr. Huang had broken the rules and was sent to solitary confinement. His family was not allow to visit him. Presently, Mr. Lu's condition is unknown and the situation is urgent.
We urge overseas Falun Gong practitioners and the kindhearted people of the world to get involved and help stop the brutal torture of Mr. Lu at the Panjin Prison (Fifth Ward).
