Crimes Committed by Luotaishan Brainwashing Center
The Luotaishan Brainwashing Center in Fushun City is located inside the Saerhu Tourist District, a suburb of the Dongzhou District, Fushun City. It consists of two, three-story white buildings. The sides of the buildings that are close to a slope are surrounded by a red brick wall. The wall is over two meters high and the top of the wall is full of broken glass. The facade has a black wrought iron fence with verticals like spears about 1.6 meters high. There is one surveillance camera at the entrance to the tourist district and another one on top of a pole in front of the buildings.
The Luotaishan Brainwashing Center in Fushun City was established by the CCP Politics and Law Committee in Liaoning Province and in Fushun City in 2002. Liaoning Province allocated 1.4 million yuan to rebuild the brainwashing center and deceived the public with the names “Liaoning Province Caring and Love Center” and “Fushun City Law Education School,” but it is an evil place used to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. The 610 Office forced all levels of local governments to allocate funds to persecute Falun Gong, 3,500 yuan for each practitioner. The county and local district level governments have to pay 1,500 yuan, and the city and provincial levels 1,000 yuan each. If the practitioners did not give up their belief, the 610 Office starts another brainwashing session and requires the governments to pay again.
The brainwashing center is in existence specifically to try to force practitioners to give up their belief in Falun Dafa. Many practitioners from Fushun City, Heilongjiang Province, Jilin Province, Liaoning Province, Beijing, Lanzhou, Daqing Oilfield, Lingyuan, Panjin, Liaohe Oilfield, Shenyang, Dalian, Jinzhou, and other places have been sent there. Inside the brainwashing center, practitioners are threatened and brutally tortured, which often causes them injury, disability, and even death. Some of the practitioners were transferred to the Fifth Hospital (a mental hospital) in Fushun City to be persecuted.
Crimes Committed by Brainwashing Center Head Wu Wei
Wu Wei was the former head of the administration section in Fushun City Forced Labor Camp. In 2000, he was dismissed because he was exposed for accepting bribes. At the end of 2000, he bribed the head of the forced labor camp, Huang Wei, and others and finally was transferred to the brigade where Falun Gong practitioners were persecuted as the captain. He persecuted practitioners aggressively. According to an insider, when he was the captain of the female bridge, he extorted a large amount of money from practitioners. He also insulted them. In 2003, after he was transferred to Luotaishan Brainwashing Center as the head, he used the same tactics to extort money from practitioners and actively persecute them.
He slandered Falun Gong and spread lies to defame Dafa. He also personally organized meetings to criticize and insult the practitioners. He detained each practitioner in a separate room and sent people to monitor them. He also did not allow the practitioners to talk or communicate with each other.
Wu Wei also constantly monitored the practitioners' every move and analyzed their thinking in order to find an excuse to persecute them. He not only monitored them through the prison windows but also monitored their so-called "counselors."
Wu Wei also discriminated against, threatened, and physically tortured the practitioners who did not compromise their beliefs. He committed many violent crimes against practitioners in Fushun City Forced Labor Camp.
For example, he called over 20 people to beat practitioner Ms. Sun Changli from Hongmiaozi Township, Xinbin County in Fushun City, in order to force her to give up her belief in Falun Dafa. They beat and kicked her, using a wooden board to hit her. They grabbed her hair and hit her head against the wall, the tile floor, and a wooden table. They slapped her face so badly that it swelled up. They tortured her from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. in the night, until Ms. Sun couldn't see anymore. Wu Wei and others also threatened her, saying, “After we release you, you cannot tell anyone that you became blind as a result of the beatings. You need to say you fell down and injured your eyes by yourself. Otherwise, we will beat you to death.”
Practitioner Ms. Zhang Chuanwen, 30, had her legs split apart by Wu Wei. Her legs were so severely injured that she could not walk.
Torture re-enactment: Splitting the legs
Wu Wei kicked Ms. Qin Qingfang, in her 50s, in the neck. She immediately fainted.
Practitioner Ms. Zhang Zhiqin is from Qingyuan County, Fushun City. Wu Wei dragged her to his office and used the bench to hit her head and back until he broke the leg of the bench. Wu Wei also said, “I am going to beat you to death today. Let's see who can say anything about me.” Ms. Zhang fainted due to the beating.
On New Year's in 2002, Ms. Zhang Zhiqin went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution and was sent to the Second Hospital in Fushun City. Wu Wei brutally beaten and kicked her so many times in the hospital that the one-inch-thick bed board was broken. Wu Wei told others, “In order to beat Falun Gong practitioners, I practice hitting sandbags at home.” Ms. Zhang could not straighten up anymore. Her heart and brain were damaged, and her eyes became dull due to the beating. She looks like a completely different person.
In 2002, Wu Wei was rewarded by the CCP in Liaoning Province with 10,000 yuan in cash. The Fushun City Forced Labor Camp rewarded him with 5,000 yuan because he actively persecuted Falun Gong practitioners. He also bragged about how many practitioners he had “transformed.”
