Heilongjiang Province Wuchang Brainwashing Center Has Tortured More Than 400 Practitioners

December 03, 2011 |   By a Clearwisdom correspondent from Heilongjiang Province, China

(Clearwisdom.net) Since 2000, the 610 Office, under the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regime of Jiang Zemin, has been planning, opening, and operating brainwashing centers all over China. These centers are given names like “Law System School” or “Law System Study Class,” but they actually are illegally operating prisons, hidden from public view, where lies and violence are used to persecute innocent Falun Dafa practitioners. The Wuchang Brainwashing Center in Heilongjiang Province is one of them.

From 2000 to the present, more than 400 practitioners have been persecuted in the Wuchang Brainwashing Center. This is an incomplete count since the facts have been covered up by the CCP. The center is located on the first and second floors of an apartment inside the Wuchang City Family Planning Bureau family compound. There is no name plate outside, but it is well known to the residents of Wuchang City. The first room to the right of the gate on the first floor is where the practitioners are handcuffed and hung up. Its windows are always covered. The Helongjiang Province 610 Office directly manages the center. The 610 Office director, Zhou, personally takes charge of it. For many years, not only practitioners from Heilongjiang Province, but also some from Jilin Province and Liaoning Province have been imprisoned there. In the last two years, most imprisoned practitioners were from the Daqing Oilfield Company and China Petroleum & Chemical Industry Corporation.

The director of the Brainwashing Center is Fu Yanchun. He is also the deputy secretary of the Wuchang City Political and Judiciary Committee. Most of the newly imprisoned practitioners were immediately subjected to being suspended in the air day and night. The staff of the center used violence to pressure them to “transform.” Fun Yanchun added, “You may ask around and will be told that people have died here. Your death will be in vain. It will be counted as suicide. This is policy.” “The CCP is not reasonable. If you are strong, then you can sue us after you get out of here.” “I am in charge here. If you die, then what? This is a hell in human society.”

Fu beat practitioners. Grabbing a victim's hair and slapping his or her face are his common habits. The center uses tortures such as the “big hang up,” “hanging in shape of a cross,” “the big hang up behind the back,” electric shocks, brutal beatings, etc. Some of these tortures are illustrated at http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2004/11/17/54624.html. The most common one nowadays is the big hang up behind the back. The victim is handcuffed behind the back and then “hung up” by the handcuffs, with his toes barely touching the ground. The victim afterwards suffers from serious problems such as numbness in the hands and feet, pain in the back and legs, cuts and scars on the hands, swollen hands and feet, difficulty walking, lameness, or even death.


Torture re-enactment: Hanging up in the air.

Zhu Xianfu is the former CCP secretary of the Wuchang Brainwashing Center. He is a veteran. He acted like a peacemaker but was one hundred percent active. He manages the daily activities in the center.

Mo Zhenshan is the incumbent deputy director of the Wuchang Brainwashing Center. He plays the roles of a peacemaker and an evildoer. He is in charge of brainwashing practitioners using evil lies and pressuring practitioners daily to write the three statements and so called “understandings” to defame Dafa. Evil hides behind his smile, and he plays dirty tricks in secret and pretends to understand. His position shifts with the wind. People call him “a person with a kind face and a cruel heart.” He took advantage of the persecution and has sold his soul for personal gain

People who are familiar with these people have pity on them. They having been committing evil deeds all these years. They are in danger. If they do not wake up in time, quit the CCP, stop their evil deeds, and mend their ways, they will go down with the CCP and it being too late for regrets.

Fu Yanchun and his son-in-law, Aming, are cruel evildoers that assist in the persecution. Fu and two others work full time at the center. Others are temporary. Temporary workers Zhu Xianfu, Mo Zhenshan, Fu's second eldest sister-in-law, and Fu's second eldest brother Fu Yanbo pretend to be peacemakers. They report to Fu Yanchun when they cannot achieve their sinister goals. Fu and others then use torture and deceit to coerce practitioners to write the three statements.

Once a person writes the three statements, he will then be forced to re-write them every morning. They force practitioners they consider hard to “transform” or not totally “transformed” to write a paper that finds fault with Falun Dafa or Master Li every morning. In the daytime, they make practitioners “study” books and videos defaming and criticizing Dafa and Master, and to write evil “understandings.” At night, they make practitioners play poker so they won't have time to send forth righteous thoughts.

They threaten practitioners not to expose the crimes being committed in the center. They extort money from local practitioners. They used to hold practitioners in the center, extort money from them, release them, and extort money from them again after a while. In the recent two years, they have targeted the Daqing Oilfield Company, China Petroleum & Chemical Industry Corporation, and other such companies. Companies have to pay them over 20,000 yuan for each practitioner held in the center and have to cough up more if the practitioner is held for an extended period of time. If police are involved with the arrest, the company has to pay another 10,000 yuan to the police. In addition, they do all they can to extort money from friends and relatives of practitioners. Some families of practitioners are forced to give them money and take them out to eat and drink. They even intentionally detain practitioners for an extended time so they can extort more money.

Fu Yanchun, Zhu Xianfu, and Mo Zhenshan are the key persecutors in the Wuchang Brainwashing Center. We hope the WOIPFG (World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong) investigates their crimes in persecuting Falun Gong.
