Ms. Xu Hui Tortured Until She Became Disabled
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Xu Hui, 60 years old, was retired from the Jiutai Pharmaceutical Company in Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province. She was sentenced to two years and tortured at the infamous Masanjia Forced Labor Camp, resulting in physical injuries. Those who tortured her include the director, Zhou Qin, captain of the 3rd ward Shi Yu, guard Ma Jishan, and nurse Chen Bing. Ms. Xu was released on August 3, 2009, after she had become disabled. She was diagnosed with peripheral nerve damage of the arms. Her blood pressure, blood vessels and excretory organs were also severely damaged.

More torture facts were revealed recently.
1. Force-Fed With Mustard Oil
In September 2008, policewoman Zheng (surname) and nurse Chen Bing force-fed Ms. Xu with mustard seed oil. It was so hot that it took Ms. Xu's breath away. Afterward, Chen put mustard seed oil inside Ms. Xu's nostrils and covered her mouth with a mop before she left.
2. Agonizing Torture
In November 2007, Ms. Xu was disabled after being hung up and stretched for extended periods of time. She no longer had use of her hands or arms. The flesh on her wrists was torn from the handcuffs and she was unable to sit up straight. She had become an invalid. When she was taken to the duty office for a phone call with her son Cai Chao, Cai cried upon hearing his mother's voice, which sounded as if she was in tremendous pain. Cai, 23, was also held in a separate ward at Masanjia Camp because he also practiced Falun Gong. At the time, guard Yuan Shuzhen yelled into the phone that Mr. Cai was talking on, “What are you crying about? You are supposed to talk her out of practicing (Falun Gong)!” Yuan hung up the phone. Director Zhou Qin and captain Zhang Jun were present at the time.
That day, when nurse Chen Bing was force-feeding Ms. Xu, Chen said, “Have her son talk her out of practicing (Falun Gong) or take care of him.” They planned to torture her son if she didn't renounce Falun Gong. That was the only time the mother and son spoke in the two years they were imprisoned in Masanjia. Because of Ms. Xu's physical condition due to the torture, the camp refused to let others visit her.
It was a daily routine to be mentally tortured, humiliated, scolded and beaten. In 2009, when nurse Chen Bing was force-feeding Ms. Xu, she threatened her, “I wish you would drop dead or be run over by a car. You'll be lucky if you can walk out of here alive.” There were former practitioners that succumbed under the torture and renounced the practice, who assisted the torturers. They were called collaborators. These collaborators monitored the practitioners' every move and reported it to the guards. They misrepresented the teachings of Falun Gong to make the practitioners believe that giving up the practice was the right thing to do. If they were not successful, they yelled at and beat the practitioners.
3. Injections of Unknown Drugs
When the guards force-fed Ms. Xu, they added unknown drugs to her porridge. In 2008, Ms. Xu was force-fed with drugs that reduce blood pressure. Her blood pressure went from too high to too low, but the force-feeding did not stop. One day, there was a health check and the doctor found that her blood pressure was 90/60, and that was when the force-feeding of drugs stopped. This happened many times while Ms. Xu was imprisoned.
Many times, medical examinations were used as a tool to intensify the torture. Based on information gleaned from the medical exams, the guards decided how they could torture the practitioners without killing them. After the torture, the guards would have the practitioners checked for blood pressure and heart condition, and then decide what they would do next. The guards were experimenting on how much physical abuse the practitioners could take. This happened to those with heart problems and high blood pressure.
The doctors in the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp Affiliated Hospital colluded with the guards. When the guards took practitioners to the hospital, the doctor would ask the guards what to check. One time a doctor surnamed Huo looked at Ms. Xu, who was emaciated and said, “She does not look too bad, considering what she had been through.” The doctor knew that the peripheral nerves in her upper arms were damaged from the hanging tortures. Another doctor would perform physical checks by knocking the elbows with a little mallet and taking a picture.
One time during force-feeding, Ms. Xu tasted something suspicious in the food and said, “There are drugs in this.” Nurse Chen Bing finished force-feeding her and went to talk to Wang Xiaofeng, who was in charge of adding drugs in the food. After that, the suspicious taste disappeared. Ms. Xu's mouth bled for many days for no apparent reason.
Before Ms. Xu was released, the camp attempted to extort 20,000 yuan from her family. Her family refused.
The surname of the doctor who was in charge of the clinic in the women's ward in Masanjia was Hu. Hu was responsible for inmate patients, writing prescriptions and transferring patients to the hospitals. Chen Bing, the nurse, gave injections and was in charge of force-feeding. Nurse Xiang (surname), was in charge of trauma treatment and changing dressings.
4. Fingerprinting and Photographing
Practitioners that refused to renounce Falun Gong were fingerprinted on documents that stated that they would renounce Falun Gong. They would be tortured if they refused
The guards completed a monthly evaluation card on every practitioner for some kind of inspection. The practitioners did not know what was documented on the card. The guard just talked to the practitioners for a few minutes and made up things on the evaluation. They forced the practitioners to put their fingerprints on the cards. Ms. Xu refused to put her fingerprint or have her picture taken, so the guards tortured her. Her fingers were swollen and her legs were injured as a result.
The practitioners were given new blankets and sheets for their beds before inspections. At night, they were forced to put their filthy old blankets and sheets back on the beds. When morning came, the practitioners had to quickly carry the old blankets and sheets to a storeroom. Sometimes they had to put the blankets and sheets in a workshop, which was very dirty and filled with toxic chemicals. Some of the practitioners became disabled or sick. Ms. Xu's arms were hurt, but guards Yuan (surname) and Pan Yixi forced her to remove the blankets and sheets, and would not let others help her. This kind of torture did not end until July 7, 2009.
In the second half of 2008, a small two-story building was built on the drill field of the women's ward. The building looked like a prison with a remote-controlled door and barbed wire on the windows. All of the large windows in the rooms were sealed. Only very small windows could be opened. There was a torture room used specifically for practitioners, and a workshop so that the camp could make the practitioners perform forced labor.
On July 7, 2009, six practitioners and three prisoners (not practitioners) were transferred to the new building. The six practitioners were locked in one cell. They were Ms. Xia Ning from Xingcheng County, Ms. Sun Shujie from Heilongjiang Province, Ms. Zhang Lianying from Beijing, Ms. Liu Shiqin from Benxi City, Ms. Xu Hui from Jinzhou City, and Ms. Liu Yanqin from Qingyuan County. They were tortured incessantly while in that building.
