( Mr. Su Gang from Chengdu, Sichuan Province was subjected to eighteen months in a forced labor camp after he was arrested in May, 2011 in Baoji, Shaanxi Province.

He was held at the Xinjin Brainwashing Center in Chengdu, Sichuan.

The Third Ward of the Guozhen Forced Labor Camp is specialized in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. Warden Zheng (first name unknown) and guard Zhi Jun gathered sturdy and wicked criminal inmates, and formed a “safe team”. Others called them the “beater team” since what they did was beat practitioners. They claimed they beat others “legally” because they were following the orders of guards, and the more people they beat, the more they had their prison terms reduced.

Mr. Su Gang was repeatedly beaten by the “beater team”. They subjected him to various tortures, such as splitting the legs (see, standing punishment, squat punishment, sleep deprivation. Mr. Su Gang had damage all over his body. He suffered unendurable pain, could not move his body or take care of himself, and developed tuberculosis.
