(1) For fifty days practitioners were forced to sit with backs straight and hands in their laps on hard benches for 18 hours per day. The authorities even limited practitioners' restroom use time. Because of the long time spent sitting on hard benches, practitioners' buttocks developed painful sores. Practitioners could not even urinate normally because of the pain. The labor camp was very wet, but the police would not allow practitioners to have fresh air or sunlight. Practitioners were locked up for so long that countless painful, itchy red scabs grew on the bodies of practitioners. See case on: http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2002/7/29/24631.html
