Jiamusi Labor Camp has adopted force as a means of "transforming" Dafa disciples. They used what are known as the 'soft' and 'hard' methods, including brainwashing and corporal punishment, to torture practitioners. Since December 2000 , there have been three Dafa disciples tortured to death in the labor camp. They were:
  1. Tang Hong, female, 37 years old. On January 15, 2000, her family received the death notice. Police said she had written a letter before her death, but her family never saw it.
  2. Fang Cuifang, female, 40 years old. In early December 2000, her family received her death notice.
  3. A senior male. As usual, his death was listed as a "natural death".
