(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Wu Zhiping, Falun Dafa practitioner from Nanchang Steel Company Ltd. in Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province, suffered brutal torture in the Jiangxi Women's Prison. As a result of the persecution, she has developed hematuria and is extremely weak.
Ms. Wu was illegally arrested by officers from the Qingyunpu Police Branch Station in the afternoon of October 18, 2008. She was sentenced to three years and six months in prison on April 9, 2009. Officials from the judiciary branch extorted 10,000 yuan from her family to reduce the sentence to three years. She was jailed on June 3, 2009.
In the prison, she was forced to stand still for long periods of time and was deprived of sleep. When she closed her eyes, the collaborators would spray an irritant into her eyes, so that her eyes would be so painfully irritated that she could not sleep.
Since 2010, Ms. Wu has been persecuted by guards Chen Li, Fen Wang, Shu Ying, Cao Weihong, Dai Guozhen, and Chen Shenghong. One time Chen Li and Fen Wang ordered her to report to the 610 Office personnel and tell them that she agreed to being “transformed.” Ms. Wu clarified the facts about Falun Dafa to them, but they did not listen and threatened to send her to solitary confinement if she did not give up her belief.
When Ms. Wu called out, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” Shu Ying ran over and covered her mouth. Chen Li and Shu Ying tied Ms. Wu's hands to a pipe in the workshop, and Chen Li then assigned prisoners to “change” her.
The guards put Ms. Wu in solitary confinement for four months. When they first brought her there, she right away felt dizzy and had difficulty breathing; she felt like her heart had almost stopped beating. She realized that the guards had put toxic chemicals in the room. Gradually she returned to normal. The next day, a guard asked her: "Are you okay after last night?”
For the first two months of confinement she was not allowed eat in the morning, and was forced to stand for one and a half hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon. Guards Fen Wang and Chen Li often came to threaten her and also instigated her family members to put pressure on her. For example, they said to Ms. Wu's daughter that Ms. Wu would be kept in solitary confinement if she did not give up Falun Gong.
Later guards took turns to monitor Ms. Wu 24 hours a day. Cao Weihong and Dai Guozhen were in charge of the daytime, and Shu Ying and Chen Shenghong took the night. They mistreated Ms. Wu day and night, accusing her and slandering Falun Gong. They also forced her to stand still from daytime to three o'clock in the morning. Ms. Wu's feet became swollen, but they still refused to end the torture. They sent two people to hold her up and continued this abuse for nine days.
In November 2010, Ms. Wu Zhiping resisted the persecution and said that Falun Dafa is good, since it helps people to become good and improves their moral standard. Chen Li was enraged and called on people to brainwash her. Almost all of the personnel in the third squad were involved in brainwashing Ms. Wu non-stop. In the beginning, the sessions ended at midnight, but later they continued till 4:30 in the morning.
Because of long-lasting persecution, Ms. Wu has developed hematuria and back pain. She still cannot stand up straight and has to walk with a bent back.
