[Hebei Province] Deceptive Policewoman Zhang Ruifen Embodies the Essence of Hebei Province Brainwashing Center
Zhang Ruifen, who is in her forties, used to be in the first brigade of Shijiazhuang Forced Labor Camp. Her show of kindness deceived some practitioners. In early 2002, she retired from the labor camp and was hired by the Hebei Province capital city's brainwashing center.
While she was at the forced labor camp, she had forced Dafa practitioners to sing songs or do setting-up exercises, which is actually a form of mental torture. When Dafa practitioners had already been beaten, suspended with ropes in awkward positions, handcuffed, or bound with thin painful ropes, but still would not give up their beliefs, Zhang Ruifen would go in action. She pretended to want to help the practitioners, yet never released those who had been suspended or shackled the whole night or tended to the wounds of their bodies. If the practitioners were not fooled by her words and pretenses, she immediately ground her teeth and gave orders to brutally torture, insult and isolate them. Those who did not recognize her vicious intentions, and were deceived by her false tears, she carefully watched everyday, and tried all possible means to make them lose their righteous beliefs.
In order to receive rewards, Zhang Ruifen spared no effort to force Dafa practitioners to do setting-up exercise, and sing revolutionary songs, in an attempt to fabricate evidence for propaganda purposes.
