(Clearwisdom.net) On the afternoon of November 11, 2011, Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Zhang Guihao was arrested at home by three plainclothes officers from the Zhaoyuan Domestic Security Division. The police ransacked his home and confiscated a computer, a VCD player, a photo of the founder of Falun Gong, and other personal belongings. He was later taken to the Lingnan Gold Mine Brainwashing Center. His family went to the brainwashing center inquiring about his whereabouts and the center authorities refused to tell them. On November 30, 2011, Mr. Zhang was tortured to death. The next day, his family was notified of his death only after the brainwashing center authorities had a secret meeting.
Mr. Zhang Guihao
The brainwashing center was moved to an abandoned building at the Lingnan Gold Mine in 2004, and guarded around the clock. There is a torture room on the second floor with a specially-made iron chair, with chains and foot locks. Falun Gong practitioners are bound to the iron chair, and then shocked with a hand operated high-voltage generator or electric batons and beaten with batons, ropes or several twisted wires. Other torture methods include tying practitioners up with ropes, deprivation of sleep, hanging by handcuffs, and force-feeding of unknown drugs.

The director of the brainwashing center has been changed many times since 2001. The current director is Li Haifeng, who was promoted in April 2011 from his previous position at the Political and Judiciary Committee. In the past ten-plus years, this brainwashing center has never stopped persecuting Falun Gong practitioners regardless of who the director is.
