Recent Mistreatment of Falun Gong Practitioners at Baimalong Forced Labor Camp in Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province
(Minghui.org) Ever since the CCP began the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in 1999, the Baimalong Forced Labor Camp in Zhuzhou City has actively participated in the persecution. During the past thirteen years, because Falun Gong practitioners have continuously clarified the truth and resisted the persecution, the mistreatment of practitioners at the Baimalong Forced Labor Camp has improved slightly. However, to this day the labor camp still severely persecute those practitioners who continuously do the Falun Gong exercises and resist the persecution.
In July/August 2012, practitioner Ms. Liu Yongfen was forcibly taken to the labor camp by the Domestic Security Bureau of Chaling County. In the beginner training group of the labor camp, she refused to read the labor camp regulations. While Liu Yongfen's legs would not allow her to stand up or walk properly, female guard Peng Jinwen shouted, "If you don't read it, we will take you to the strict control team and cuff your hands and legs." Captain Zhu Rong also pressured Liu Yongfen at the same time. Falun Gong practitioners were forced to do slave labor on production lines after they were put on the labor team.
In March 2012, in the seventh group of the labor team, Ms. Zhao Luosheng was taken to the strict control team because she persisted in doing the Falun Gong exercises. She was deprived of sleep around the clock, and the guards used a variety of torture methods on her. She was forced to stand on one leg, to do so-called “yoga,” and to stand in a military position. It was later said that Zhao Luosheng developed a mental condition due to the torture. When Zhao Luosheng was detained in the Baimalong Forced Labor Camp in 2009, she was also tortured to the point of becoming mentally ill because she insisted on doing the Falun Gong exercises.
Practitioner Ms. Liu Chunqin was taken to the strict control team in October 2011 because she refused to squat when her name was called. Female guard Xu Maishu specified six staff members from the strict control team, including Cao Shihua, Liu Bingbing, and Zhang Wenqing, to beat Liu Chunqing together. Within a day, they beat Liu Chunqing three times, injuring her legs. Despite that this was during her menstrual period, they deprived her of sleep at night and forced her to stand throughout the night. Xu Maishu said viciously, "Tonight we will fix her."
One week later, Wang Qingruan, 67, was taken to the strict control team because she refused to do the morning exercises. She was deprived of sleep for 12 days continuously. At the beginning the guards forced her to sit on a small stool. Captain Chen from the beginner training group saw that she refused to give in, so she said fiercely, "I want to see how tough a Falun Gong practitioner can be." She ordered the guard to remove the stool and forced Wang Qingruan to stand around the clock.
