Falun Dafa Practitioners Cruelly Tortured in Masanjia Forced Labor Camp
Ms. Zhong Shujuan Brutally Mistreated
For clarifying the truth to people, Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhong Shujuan has been illegally sentenced to forced labor three times and detained once. She is now being inhumanly tortured and persecuted in Masanjia Forced Labor Camp. She is in great anguish every day not being able to see her daughter, and her mother is close to 80 years old and isn't able to take care of herself.
Police officers have ransacked Ms. Zhong's home three times. When her daughter protested to the police officers, saying "What you are doing is illegal," several of them immediately surrounded her, grabbed her, and dragged her all the way down the stairs, even though she was barefooted, and took her to the police station. This traumatized her, and now she is always worried and afraid of seeing any strangers. All of Ms. Zhong's husband's teeth ended up falling out from the tremendous pressure. A once-happy family was destroyed.
In 2001, when Ms. Zhong was detained at the Dalian Forced Labor Camp, she was held in solitary confinement and tortured until she bled profusely, her right leg became limp, and her left hand was disabled. She was then tied to a death bed for eight days and was near death.
During an intensive campaign to persecute practitioners at Masanjia Forced Labor Camp in 2003, that lasted 40 days, she was deprived of sleep and brutally tortured around the clock.
Since April 13, 2007, Ms. Zhong has been inhumanly tortured at Masanjia Forced Labor Camp. She has been shocked with electric batons, beaten with rubber clubs, subjected to corporal punishments, and stripped of her clothes so that others could write words defaming Falun Dafa on her body.
When Falun Gong practitioners are persecuted at Masanjia Forced Labor Camp, they are ordered to sign an assessment sheet. If they refuse, they are beaten and tortured. The camp's regular inmates can sign the sheets in the workshops, but practitioners are not allowed to sign in those places.
On November 30, 2007, for refusing to sign the sheets, practitioners Ms. Wang Junyan and Ms. Sun Zhongqin were cruelly tortured. Guards involved in torturing them included Zhao Guorong, Zhang Chunguang, and Gao Yuan.
In late October, for writing "Falun Dafa is great" on her badge, Ms. Wang was cruelly tortured, and her arms and legs were painfully bruised.
On March 31, 2008, four inmates carried practitioner Ms. Liu Hua to the office. Guard Li Shuling pulled Ms. Liu's hair and pinched her face, and guard Liu Guorong slapped her face. As a result, Ms. Liu's face was swollen for several days, and her term was extended by five days. Ms. Sun Zhongqin was beaten to the point that her eye hurt for many days. Ms. Hu Yanli was taken to a restroom by Zhao Guorong, where she was slapped very hard, and her nose immediately started bleeding. After Zhao wiped the blood with some soiled cloths, Hu was beaten until she was incapacitated due to the chest and back pain. Nonetheless, the guards forced her to carry on with the hard labor.
Ms. Lin Junyan's health was very poor, so Zhao attempted to stop her from continuing with her hunger strike for fear that he might be held accountable for her death. He had practitioner Ms. Zhong Shujuan talk to Ms. Lin about her strike. Ms. Zhong told Zhao that she didn't think Ms. Lin was going to extremes, but rather simply opposing the persecution. Then she challenged Zhao as to why they had to sign the sheets every month. She also said that coercion could not change their belief in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance." Zhao talked to Ms. Lin again but eventually had to agree that they could no longer force them to sing the sheets.
On April 30, 2008, the location for signing the assessment sheets was changed to the team leader's office and the duty room. There was a large electric baton placed on the table. If practitioners refused to sign the assessment sheet, they were shocked. Practitioners were then forced to sign the sheets, but Ms. Wang Fa refused, so she was beaten. Mr. Teng Shiyun was also taken into the office. Li Mingyu and Gao Yuan, along with officers Zhai Yanhui, Li Shuying, and Zhang Chunguang all came at Mr. Teng and began to beat him. Then they forced Mr. Teng to leave his fingerprint on the sheet.
Ms. Zhong Shujuan wrote a truth-clarification letter to those in charge of the labor camp. As a result, her term was extended and her family is not allowed to visit her.
After practitioner Ms. Wang Chunying from Dalian City was tortured for 16 hours, she still refused to sign the sheet. In late March, two police officers, Chen Qiumei and Wang Guangyun, had two inmates assist them. They grabbed Ms. Wang's arms and attempted to force her fingers to sign the sheet. They even changed pens, but still couldn't get her signature, because she held her fist tightly closed. She clarified the truth to them and told them that what they were doing was committing a crime. She also shouted loudly that Falun Dafa was great, and that "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" was great. Ms. Wang kept her fist closed so tightly that they never did get her signature, and the guards had to instead sign the sheet themselves.
In October 2007, several practitioners were brought to Masanjia from Beijing. A few strongly-built guards cruelly tortured them, and the yelling and screaming left ordinary inmates very scared during the night. In April 2004, they brought in a dozen female practitioners from Beijing and began torturing them. Among them, Ms. Zhong Shuhua refused to allow her photo to be taken. She also shouted "Falun Dafa is good." The guards beat her and took her picture against her will.
These are the kinds of things that practitioners in Masanjia Forced Labor Camp are faced with. They have to get up very early in the morning, work non-stop during the day for 12 hours, and if they can't meet their quotas, they are beaten and threatened. Ms. Wang Guiling was beaten and cruelly tortured because she refused to sign the assessment sheet. In July 2007, they were given poor-quality food, and you could even see sand in the soap they were given for washing.
