Practitioner Zhu Lianzhen from Leshan City, Sichuan Province Sent to Forced Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Zhu Lianzhen, a fifty-four-year-old woman, is from Guanyin town of Leshan city, Sichuan province. Because she refused to give up her belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, she was sent to Wutongqiao detention center by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials in Leshan city. After being detained for forty days, she was sentenced to a year in forced labor camp. Currently she is being detained at Sichuan Women's Forced Labor Camp at Nanmusi area of Zizhong city.
On the morning of May 28, 2008, over ten people, including the local Guanyin town governmental official, Zhang Yelan, the secretary to Luo Zhonghua, the director of women's committee Ren Dingrong, and the director of Wutongqiao public security bureau Ren Huaifei all came to Zhu Lianzhen's home. They deceived her by saying that they came to visit the victims of the earthquake. As soon as they entered the room, they ransacked her home and confiscated her Dafa books, Teacher's portrait, and truth clarification materials. That night, they took Zhu Lianzhen to the Wutongqiao Detention Center where she was detained for forty days. (There were also five other female practitioners detained there, three of them were from Wutongqiao area).
At the Wutongqiao Detention Center, police interrogated practitioners one by one. In the first several days, she was not allowed to eat or use the toilet. The police threatened her by saying that they would starve her to death. They forced her to take pictures and reveal the source of her truth clarification materials. When all of their methods failed, they again attempted to deceive her, by saying that she would be released immediately after revealing her source for her materials.. After recognizing their wicked method, Dafa practitioners clarified truth to them.
The police also extorted money from them. Practitioners were not allowed to bring their daily items and their families were not allowed to send food. All daily items needed to be purchased at the detention center. However, the prices were marked up at least three times over regular market prices.
Seeing that they could not transform practitioners this way, the police wrongfully labeled Zhu Lianzhen with some kind of crime and sent her to the Sichuan Women's Forced Labor Camp in Nanmusi area of Zizhong city, where she has been suffering torture.
At the Nanmusi Women's Forced Labor Camp, the newly-arrived practitioners are detained on the third floor, with three to four inmates (all are involved in crimes of dealing drugs or prostitution) watching one practitioner. Every morning, they need to get up at 6:30 a.m. and finish cleaning and using toilet (many people with few toilets) within five minutes. After breakfast, they have to start intense labor immediately. They are not allowed to practice the exercises or read Dafa books. Furthermore, they are not allowed to smile or wear their own clothes. On hot summer days, they are only allowed to take showers once a week. Practitioners are forced to write the "repentance and promise not to practice Falun Gong" and other articles attacking Dafa and Teacher.
For practitioners who refuse to give up their belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, they forced them to keep in a certain position and used in an army for a long time. If they are not transformed in one month, their term would be increased by fifteen days. Practitioners who refuse to wear the uniform face the same punishment. Practitioners who are detained on the third floor would be sent to the forth floor for escalated torture if they are not transformed in one month. In addition to the torture from police, practitioners also are tortured by other inmates and are forced to massage these other inmates as well.. Practitioner Zhang Lunmin suffered a long-term nose bleed as a result of excessive labor, caused by massaging the other inmates.
The following practitioners are still being detained at the Nanmusi labor camp: Zhang Yingke, Yang Qiongfang, Huang Qiongfang, Li Shuhua, Zhang Lunmin, An Yufen, Luo Ji Ping (over 60 years old), and Zhuo Suhua (from Meishan).
