(Clearwisdom.net) Guards in the No. 3 Division of Masanjia Women's Forced Labor Camp in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province, recently tortured Ms. Yang Yufan and other Falun Gong practitioners, only because Ms. Yang and others refused to give up their belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

The No. 3 Division of Masanjia Women's Forced Labor Camp waged a forced "transformation" program on the Falun Gong practitioners who were steadfast in their beliefs. Zhang Huan, Zhang Jun, and Zhang Zhuo, directors of the No. 3 Division tortured Ms.Yang Yufan from Jinzhou, by suspending her by her handcuffed wrists. The hanging lasted for one and a half days, followed by brutal beatings for a long period of time.

On July 12, Zhang Huan, Wang Danfeng and others shocked Ms. Yang's breasts with electric batons, which caused damage to an old wound and was extremely painful.

Zhang Jun and the other officers once put Ms. Yang into a warehouse, where Zhang Jun kicked her abdomen ferociously. It was during Ms. Yang's period, so the pain was so great that she sweat profusely. Due to the kicking and beating, she hemorrhaged for more than twenty days.

In the so-called new class, Ms. Yang was beaten by Zhang Huan so brutally that her face was black and blue. Zhang Huan also used an electric baton to shock Ms. Yang's palms, arms and breast close to her heart.

Currently, Ms. Yang's condition is very feeble due to the persecution.

Ms. Fu Yan, a Falun Gong practitioner from Jinzhou, has also been subjected to different kinds of torture. For example, the guards employed "stretching torture" on her. Li Chunhong, a practitioner from Tieling, was tortured in July. During the torture, she could neither stand up nor kneel down. Her arms were handcuffed together behind her back, which is also called "flying the airplane." (1) Zhou Xiaoguang, Wang Danfeng, and Zhanglei, director of the No. 4 Division, dragged her by her hair, and shoved her against a wall. Fang Caixia was tortured with the "big hang-up." (2) Liu Ronghua was also tortured with the "big hang-up" in a warehouse. In addition, Dong Ying, a practitioner from Jinzhou, was persecuted in the No. 3 Division of the No. 3 Department. Hua Yumin was persecuted in the No. 2 Division. Fu Yan and Li Minzhi were tortured in the senior class.


(1) Flying the airplane - Criminal cell leaders often use this persecution and torture method on practitioners on the instigation of policemen and jail guards. This torture requires practitioners to bend over while holding the legs straight. Then, with the feet close together, the arms are lifted to the highest position possible, with the hands touching the wall. If practitioners can't bear it, the prisoners in the cells and designated torturers will gang up to beat them. See the illustration of this form of torture at http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2004/12/15/55600.html.

(2) "Big hang up" - There are two forms in this torture: (a) With both hands cuffed behind the back and only the toes touching the ground, one is hung by a rope that is tied to the metal window frames. (b) One hand of a practitioner is cuffed to one bunk bed and the other hand to another bed, and the two beds are pulled in the opposite directions. One feels extreme pain as the body is pulled.
