Atrocities Taking Place in Jilin Women's Prison
(Minghui.org) Heizuizi Women's Prison in Jilin Province moved to Lanjia on November 16, 2012, and was renamed Jilin Women's Prison.
What follows are some of the ways Falun Gong practitioners are brutally tortured in this prison.
Sitting on a Small Stool
When practitioners first enter the prison, they are forced to sit on small stools from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. every day. After two months, they sit from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Practitioners who refuse to renounce their beliefs are forced to sit on these small stools 20 hours per day. Some practitioners' buttocks have festered until the bones were exposed.
Practitioners are monitored by inmates. As soon as they close their eyes, the inmates pull their eyelashes. They are frequently deprived of sleep for several nights in a row.
Guards instigate inmates to beat practitioners in the restroom or places where there is no surveillance, so that no one else can see the beatings.
Exposure to Cold, Not Allowed to Bathe
Water is poured on practitioners' beds, and the windows opened wide during the winter.
Practitioners are not allowed to take showers or wash their hair. Their hair falls out by the handful.
Handcuffed Between Two Beds
Inmates are instructed to tie a practitioner between two beds and then pull the beds apart. Some practitioners' arm joints are dislocated from being tortured this way.
The inmates also tie a practitioner to a bed for several consecutive days. Some practitioners suffer torn tendons after being tied up this way. The inmates also sit on the practitioners. One practitioner sustained fractured vertebra from being tortured this way.
Force-feeding with Urine
Those who were “transformed” (brainwashed) were forced to do slave labor every day, making electronic parts.
Pressured to Slander Falun Gong
Practitioners are forced to watch videos that slander Falun Gong and ordered to swear at each other.
Ms. Sun Xiuxia, from the Kuancheng District of Changchun, was sentenced to a ten-year prison term. On April 30, 2012, guard Guo Xia instigated inmates Tian Guiping and Han Lili to beat her, resulting in her death. Tian Guiping has since been released, and Han Lili, who was serving a life sentence, was transferred to another location so that no one can find her.
Ms. Tang , who is in her sixties, suffered a brain hemorrhage as a result of torture, and can no longer talk, but the prison still refuses to release her. Ms. Yang Shumei , who is in her fifties, was sentenced to three years in prison. She has lost the ability to speak due to torture and needs help to walk.
Shao Liang, a former Falun Gong practitioner from Jilin City who went astray, has gone all over China to help brainwash other practitioners.
