Falun Gong Practitioners Zhang Lanping and Yu Meixiu from Hefei City Persecuted in Forced Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) Note: The following is a shortened version of a longer and more detailed article that appeared on the Minghui.org website (Chinese version of Clearwisdom.net).
Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Zhang Lanping, 57, a retired worker from the Hefei Commercial Machine Plant in Hefei, Anhui Province, was illegally arrested by agents from the 610 Office because she exposed the persecution of Falun Gong to people in May 2008. She was imprisoned in Hefei Forced Labor Camp, and 15 days later transferred to the Anhui Provincial Women's Forced Labor Camp. She is now on a hunger strike to protest the persecution.
Additionally, Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Yu Meixiu, female, in her sixties, and a retired worker from the Hefei Auto Parts Plant, was arrested by local police before the Beijing Olympic Games, and was sent to the Anhui Provincial Women's Forced Labor Camp. The police tortured her with "restraint clothes" so severely that she became humpbacked and cannot straighten her back.
