(Clearwisdom.net) Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City, Jilin Province illegally detains and persecutes Falun Gong practitioners. It consists of three divisions. The First Division is completely enclosed and specializes in torturing practitioners. The other two divisions are half enclosed. Practitioners sent to this labor camp are first taken to and persecuted in the First Division.

The ten practitioners currently detained in the First Division are: Mr. Jia Lizhu, Mr. Pan Wei, Mr. Sun Jie, Mr. Wang Hongwu, Mr. Wang Aiguo, Mr. Liu Xiaoxin, Mr. Ji Youcai, Mr. Wang Yonghua, Mr. Sun Guiwen, and Mr. Li Yi.

Five practitioners are detained in the Second Division: Mr. Zhang Guangzhao, Mr. Zong Cheng, Mr. Jiang Guangxin, Mr. Xie Huizhou and Mr. Wang Yunliang.

Mr. Ma Guohua, Mr. Zhu Ruibang, Mr. Chi Yaocai, and eight other practitioners are detained in the Third Division.

Facts of the Persecution

Mr. Chi Minbao should have been released on September 22, 2011, after being detained for two years. However, the labor camp officials extended his term for another two months without going through any legal procedures.

Mr. Zhu Ruibang went on a hunger strike to resist the persecution after being sent to the First Division on October 11, 2011. The guards then isolated him in a solitary cell and deprived him of sleep by having six inmates take turns watching him. In addition, they tied him to a bed and force-fed him. This brutal torture went on for more than ten days.

Mr. Zhang Guangzhao was detained in the Second Division. Although he is nearly 70 years old, political head Liu Xiaoyu slapped him brutally in December 2011 because he told guards and inmates the facts about Falun Gong.

Mr. Jia Lizhu was detained in the First Division. Because he resisted the persecution and refused to wear a prison uniform, the guards severely tortured him, causing his blood pressure to go up to more than 200 mmHg and he could not walk without assistance. Although Mr. Jia was in very serious condition, the labor camp officials still refused to release him.

Mr. Ma Guohua was diagnosed with heart disease in December 2011 because of the brutal persecution suffered in the forced labor camp. He could neither eat nor walk without help.

The Guards' Crimes

Gao Zhilu is a guard in the First Division who specializes in “transforming” practitioners. Every day he walks around holding an electric baton in his hand, shocking and kicking whoever he sees fit. Whenever he is on duty, he coerces practitioners to listen to his misinterpretation of Falun Gong teachings and severely beats practitioners who correct him.

Zhu Jiahui is head of the Management Section of the labor camp. When he was on duty, he coerced practitioners to watch videos about Buddhism or to listen to his twisted interpretation of Falun Gong teachings. He has persecuted many practitioners in the past 11 years. When he worked in Shilingzi Prison in Siping City, Jilin Province, he once handcuffed practitioners to heating pipes and shocked them with high-voltage electric batons, causing practitioners to lose control of their bodily functions. Practitioner Mr. Liang Zhenxing, who passed away after suffering extremely brutal and prolonged torture, was once persecuted severely by Zhu Jiahui. Zhu force-fed Mr. Liang ten times per day using thick tubes inserted through his nose into his stomach. On one occasion, during a violent force-feeding, they severely injured Mr. Liang's trachea.
