The Brutality of Shen Jianwei and Other Guards at the Xuchang No. 3 Forced Labor Camp in Henan Province (Illustrations)

(Clearwisdom.net) Shen Jianwei, 53, is the political head of a division at the Xuchang No. 3 Forced Labor Camp in Henan Province. During the persecution of Falun Gong, many steadfast practitioners who refused to renounce Falun Gong were subjected to severe physical abuse and torture at his hands. The following are accounts of Shen's crimes.

Mr. Zhao Yongzhong was taken to the forced labor camp on December 28, 2002 (lunar calendar). He held a protest hunger strike for more than a month, and was often brutally force-fed. Inmates frequently physically and verbally abused him. The long-term severe torture and abuse mentally devastated Mr. Zhao, and he has been disoriented. The unit's political head, Shen Jianwei, often deliberately provoked, ridiculed, and verbally abused Mr. Zhao. The ongoing harassment has caused Mr. Zhao to become more and more confused.

Practitioners Mr. Yao Sanzhong and Mr. Li Jian died as a result of the persecution. The perpetrators broke Mr. Wang Yukun's legs. Due to torture, Mr. Pang Liang's arms were also almost disabled. Responsible individuals include Education Section head Ren Gaoqiang, political head of Division No. 3 Shi Baolong, and deputy political head Ma Huating, division head Tan Junmin, team head Zhao Zhimin, Jia Zhigang, and political head Shen Jianwei.

During one severe round of abuse, the perpetrators tightly tied up a practitioner, using thin nylon line, pulled his hair, and grabbed his throat with their hands, choking him, and then kicked and stomped on the practitioner. The nylon line was so tight that it dug into the flesh. The perpetrators released the practitioner from the rope torture after 30 minutes to an hour, and then tied him up again. This torture was repeated several dozen times. Some perpetrators stabbed the practitioner with an awl, shocked him with electric batons, and slapped him on the face. If the practitioner lost consciousness, the perpetrators poured cold water on him to awaken him. After being tortured this way, many practitioners' wounds festered for more than six months, and they were unable to walk steadily.

The perpetrators also deprived the practitioner of sleep on several consecutive days, and denied him of restroom use for seven days. If the practitioner fell asleep, they stabbed him with an awl, slapped his face, shocked him with an electric baton, stomped on him, and forced him to wear earphones to listen to high-volume programs slandering Dafa.

When the practitioner was on the verge of death as a result of the torture, the perpetrators held him up with his head against a wall, and then jabbed his anus with a toothbrush until it bled. They also gagged the practitioner's mouth with foul smelling dirty socks, stabbed him with an awl, and shocked him with an electric baton. They held the practitioner down to the ground, kicked him, and ground his toes with their heavy shoes.

According to an insider from Henan Province, because of Shen Jianwei's active involvement in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners, the Henan Province 610 Office transferred him to the Henan Province Brainwashing Center last year. He is now involved in brainwashing practitioners held there.
