The Ongoing Persecution of Practitioners at Inner Mongolia Women's Prison
(Minghui.org) More than 40 Falun Gong practitioners are still being tortured at the Inner Mongolia Women's Prison. Often with promises of reduced sentences, the guards induce other prisoners to commit brutal and inhuman acts against practitioners.
When guard Xiao Mei held a meeting, she spoke at length about how Falun Gong practitioners were disobedient and very hard to manage. After the meeting, when the prisoners went back to their cells, they first cursed at the practitioners and then tortured them. When practitioners reported the crimes to Xiao Mei, she tried to shirk responsibility and said: “How come I didn't see it?”
The guards forced everyone to take medications to prevent high blood pressure. When Falun Gong practitioners refused to take the medicine, several prisoners shoved them to the ground and force-fed them the medication.
Liu Gang was a guard who had a long history of persecuting Falun Gong at other facilities in the region. Liu was transferred to the Inner Mongolia Women's Prison to specifically focus on persecuting practitioners.
Liu Gang ordered other prisoners to put photos of the founder of Falun Gong on the entrance doors of bathrooms as an insult. If a practitioner tore it down, she would be beaten by prisoners. When a practitioner went to find Liu Gang to reason with her, Liu ordered prisoners to beat the practitioner.
Practitioner Ms. Shi Yumei refused to renounce her practice of Falun Gong. Because of this, a prisoner shoved her to the floor and then force-fed her medication. After that, prisoners kicked her in front of others. On another occasion, Ms. Shi was shocked with electric batons in a prison office.
Practitioner Ms. Wang Ying started a hunger strike after she was taken to the prison. She was force-fed with a tube that was pushed through her nasal passage into her stomach. Ms. Wang took the tube out. The prisoner forced the tube back in, and together prisoners tied her hands. They also punched, kicked, and cursed her.
The guards ordered prisoners to monitor the practitioners at all times, even when they went to the washroom. They also did not allow practitioners to talk to one another. If two practitioners were seen talking to each other, they were beaten.
