(Minghui.org) At the Shandong Province Women’s Prison, most guards wouldn’t torture Falun Gong practitioners themselves, but instead instigated convicted felons to do the job for them. The other inmates were supposed to be rehabilitated during their prison terms, but instead they were trained to become ruthless machines used to persecute innocent practitioners imprisoned for upholding their spiritual beliefs.
Some inmates were former practitioners of Falun Gong and initially imprisoned for their faith. After being forced to renounce Falun Gong through torture and coercion, some switched sides and began to assist the guards in torturing other practitioners imprisoned later on.
While an extensive report was published by Minghui.org in April 2022, this article provides additional information about the persecution in the prison. We also urge insiders to keep providing tips to expose the persecution. Those who are concerned about human rights abuses in China can also write to the prison, urging the guards not to participate in the persecution anymore.
Guards Cover Up the Abuses
Ms. Jiang Shue, a Laixi City resident, was taken to the Shandong Province Women’s Prison in 2019 and held in Room 202 of the 11th ward.
While Du Rusha screamed abuse at Ms. Jiang, former practitioner Song Chunmei beat Ms. Jiang's chest and legs with a heavy remote control. She also slapped Ms. Jiang in the face. Two of her teeth fell out as a result!
Instead of punishing the inmates, guard Mu Qiongbo accused Ms. Jiang of having a dental problem already. Prison nurse Liu Yuanyuan fabricated a medical record falsely state that Ms. Jiang had toothache a long time ago and couldn’t eat solid food. Another inmate Tang Weiwei instigated a fourth inmate to claim that Ms. Jiang’s teeth fell out as she ate something very hard. She also claimed that Ms. Jiang had attempted to deceive and harm the others. Ms. Jiang asked the guards to look at the surveillance video, but they refused.
Ms. Sui Ying refused to renounce Falun Gong, so inmate Cui Lili fed her psychiatric drugs against her will. Inmate Li Qin pressed a chair heavily against Ms. Cui to torture her. The drug caused Ms. Sui to fall into a delirious state as her eyes glossed over.
Another two practitioners, Ms. Song Yun and Ms. Li Aihua, were also forced to take psychiatric drugs. Ms. Song succumbed to the abuse and was successfully forced to renounce Falun Gong, yet inmate Cui Dongjun still ordered her to take the drugs, which left her constantly feeling anxious.
Inmates Involved in the Persecution
Other inmates who have participated in the persecution include: Gao Guizhen, Zhang Min, Lu Guilian, Yang Meijuan, Cui Lili, Zhang Xiumin, Fan Cuiyan, Li Jifeng, Fu Jiaying, Han Lianfeng, Wei Wenying, Li Qin, Lyu Yingchun, Zhang Guifen, Zhu Xinhua, Li Hong, Bao Shuguang, Bai Lanxiang and Cui Zongyan.
The above-mentioned inmate Tang Weiwei is serving a 19-year sentence for fraud. She is tall and has a strong build. She gained much experience in torturing the practitioners and took over the role of “Head of Transformation Team” in February 2020. She once placed a chair on top of someone and then sat on it, causing the practitioner’s arm to break.
