(Clearwisdom.net) On September 10, 2008, the Muleng City Court illegally tried six Falun Dafa practitioners--Gong Chengge, Wu Guoli, Jia Changmin, Sun Fa, Zhao Jianguo, and one other. The practitioners revealed how the local state security group, the local procuratorate, and the court have persecuted Falun Gong. Because of this the court quickly concluded the trial, sentencing the practitioners to from three and a half years to five years in prison. Gong Chengge appealed but his sentence remained unchanged.

All the practitioners mentioned above were sent to Mudanjiang Prison on March 25 and assigned specifically to the concentration camp.

Gong Chengge, Hou Xicai, and other practitioners have been persecuted at the concentration camp for three months now. They were specifically sent to the concentration camp as this is where practitioners are tortured in order to try and force them to give up their practice and belief in Falun Gong.

Practitioner Mr. Hou Xicai was an employee of the Financial Department of Mudanjiang Prison. Because of his belief in Falun Dafa, he was arrested by the city 610 Office and the State Security Group in March 2008. One year later, he was sentenced to four years of imprisonment and is still being persecuted in Mudanjiang Prison today.

Practitioner Mr. Dai Qihong was a warden at Mudanjiang Prison and a core technician at his work. All his supervisors and co-workers considered Dai Qihong a good and kind person. While he was distributing materials clarifying the facts about Falun Dafa in the Mudanjiang airport area, he was arrested by the local military. On March 20, 2008, his home was searched by the city state security group and the Yanjiang Police Station, and he was detained at the detention center. One year later, he was sentenced to five years of imprisonment and is still being persecuted in the Mudanjiang Prison.

The practitioners were assigned to the concentration camp along with other newly admitted inmates to endure brainwashing sessions. Usually new inmates are assigned to other sectors after three months of brainwashing. However, Falun Dafa practitioners are kept in the concentration camp longer than normal so the prison can use longer periods of brainwashing to continue torturing them. Some practitioners have been kept in the brainwashing sessions for one year.

Practitioners are not allowed to brush their teeth, shower, or wash their clothes. Wardens swear at the practitioners and hit them frequently. Wardens also manipulate inmates to abuse the practitioners or force the practitioners to sit with their legs crossed for extremely long periods of time. The practitioners are also deprived of sleep and the right to meet with their families. The practitioners are told that they will not be moved to other sectors of the jail until they are "transformed."
