( Ms. Wang Ping, about 40 years old, from Wuhe County, Bangbu City, Anhui Province, was illegally sentenced to a two-year forced labor term by the Wuhe County Domestic Security Division. She was taken to Division No. 4 of the Hefei Women's Forced Labor Camp in early July, 2011.

It was learned that Ms. Wang suffered a nervous breakdown during her previous illegal incarceration at the Anhui Province Women's Forced Labor Camp. Wuhe County Domestic Security Division head Shen Jijun forcibly took her to the Hefei Hospital to have a checkup in June before sending her to the Hefei Women's Forced Labor Camp.

Several labor camp guards dragged Ms. Wang and handcuffed her to the leg of a table after she refused to comply with their demands. The guards also deliberately shortened her meal time, frequently not giving her enough time to eat.

Ms. Wang was previously arrested and detained many times.

In January 2005, she was given a two-year forced labor term (one year on medical parole). Anhui Province Women's Forced Labor Camp guards secretly detained her in a solitary confinement cell, where they beat her daily and forced her to write “thought reports.” If she didn't write them, she was deprived of sleep. Occasionally she was allowed to sleep at 1:00 or 2:00 a.m., but she would be awakened at 4:00 a.m., so the police could torture her again. Because she refused to be “reformed,” she was often severely beaten. Sometimes she shouted "Falun Dafa is good" in the corridor when she went to use the restroom, though she knew she would immediately get a severe beating from the inmates. They grabbed her hair, pinned her down on the ground, and then dragged her into a solitary cell and viciously beat her. They sealed her mouth with adhesive tape three inches wide and wrapped it around her neck six or seven times. She was nearly suffocated. Some inmates stuffed her mouth with filthy used socks and bloody sanitary napkins. Day and night, they kept her tied to a bed. Whenever she closed her eyes, she would be severely beaten. After being tortured for more than a year, she nearly completely collapsed mentally.

On January 13, 2009, Ms. Wang Ping and Ms. Duan Genhua took a taxi to their friend's home. On the way they spoke about Falun Gong to the driver. The driver reported the conversation to the police. Just as the two practitioners arrived at their friends' home, the police arrived and arrested them. Ms. Wang was sentenced to 18 months of forced labor and Ms. Duan to 15 months. Both were sent to the Anhui Province Women's Forced Labor Camp. Because neither of them passed the physical exam, the labor camp officials would not admit them. The police officers did everything possible to get them admitted into the camp. Later, Ms. Duan was admitted, but camp officials denied entry to Ms. Wang. The police then took Ms. Wang to the Bangbu Detention Center, which also refused to keep her. Later, when Ms. Wang was taken to the No.2 Detention Center, the officials there still refused to hold her. The police had to get help from a friend to hold her in the center. Even so, the center would only take her for the night and told the police to remove her from the center the next day. Because the next day was the Chinese Lunar New Year, however, no one was interested in taking care of Ms. Wang. After a month, her sentence was changed to "serving the term outside labor camp," and she was released.

Ms. Wang was arrested twice in 2010. On July 6, Wuhe County Domestic Security Division officers arrested her for distributing information about Falun Gong. She was detained for two weeks. The second arrest took place on August 27, when officers from the Wuhe County Domestic Security Division broke into her workplace, arrested her, and detained her for two weeks.
