(Minghui.org) Mr. Sun Chengxian (孙成显), an elementary school teacher in his 60s, was recently taken to Changchun Brainwashing Center after being illegally detained for about nine months.

Officially known as “Changchun Legal Education Training Center,” it is an extra-legal facility under the direct control of the 610 Office. It was established for the sole purpose of "transforming" Falun Gong practitioners who refuse to give up their belief.

Each practitioner is monitored by two people around the clock and forced to watch videos that slander Falun Gong.

Most of the center employees used to work at the adjacent Fenjin Forced Labor Camp, which was closed last year when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) abolished the forced labor system.

The practitioners are not released or allowed family visits if they don't write statements renouncing Falun Gong. Even if they write the statements, they are still subjected to brainwashing.

Staff from the provincial and city level 610 Office give those practitioners who've written such statements a “final exam” to verify whether they have truly given up practicing Falun Gong. If they pass the exam, they will receive a “graduation certificate” as their pass to go home.

Mr. Sun Chengxian was arrested on February 25, 2014, for posting information about the persecution of Falun Gong in a residential area. The police ransacked his home and confiscated items worth more than 10,000 yuan.

In addition to Mr. Sun, six other practitioners were taken to Changchun Brainwashing Center in November, including: Li Chunhua (厉春华), Shi Bin (石斌), Zhang Hong (张宏), Zhang Chunru (张春茹), Cai Yuying (蔡玉英), and Xin Minying (辛敏英).
