Perpetrators in Shanghai Prison Meet With Retribution

February 12, 2015 |   By a Minghui correspondent in Shanghai

(Minghui.org) Tilanqiao Prison in Shanghai is notorious for torturing Falun Gong practitioners. The Minghui website has documented detailed cases there since September 2000. Among the ten wards there, Ward No. 7 has the worst record. It has historically been dedicated to “suppress anti-revolutionaries.”

Reports of No. 7 Ward perpetrators having severe health issues have surfaced in recent years. People affected include guards, collaborators, and criminals. People who know about these cases consider it karmic retribution, the oriental version of “one reaps what one sows.” Namely, the problems happened to the perpetrators as retribution for their bad deeds.

For personal gain, these people have tortured Falun Gong practitioners who were unlawfully incarcerated in Tilanqiao Prison. Among them, three guards developed late-stage cancer, and one of them died. Six criminal inmates suffered various ailments, including some that modern medicine couldn't identify. One of them died.

Practitioners being held in No. 7 Ward who refused to renounce Falun Gong were beaten or deprived of sleep every day. They were tortured by forced feedings, needle stabbing, and being made to sit still on a small stool for hours or days non-stop.

Guards Contract Late-Stage Cancer

Guard Zhang Keda was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2014. Guard Chi Yong developed cancer in the same year. Another guard, Xiong Wenqi, was diagnosed with stomach cancer last year as well, and died a week after being hospitalized.

Family Members Also Affected

Families of the perpetrators have also been negatively affected. Guard Sun Miaojun's father had a stroke in 2013. Guard Wu Guoqiang often beat practitioners at night so they could not sleep well. His only son, who was in the Armed Police, drowned at a beach in 2013.

Criminals' Retribution

An inmate who was ordered by guards to beat practitioners on several occasions, began to vomit uncontrollably a month before one practitioner he beat was scheduled to be released. A hospital diagnosed him with stomach cancer and he died a week after. His funeral was held the day the practitioner was released from prison.

This inmate's family wanted an explanation from the prison, because he was fine during a family visit a month prior. Other inmates in No. 7 Ward said that he died of retribution for torturing Falun Gong practitioners.

Another inmate, Xu Wenlin, often beat Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Zhou Bin. He now has trouble lifting his arms.

Li Yi, a criminal inmate who often worked with Xu, and beat Mr. Zhou, has developed heart problems. He has been hospitalized several times.

Prisoner Shen Jianxin had abnormal tissue growth the size of an egg. The hospital was not sure what it was. Chen Yongming had abnormal tissue growth in his intestine and anus. Puss, blood, and feces were constantly being passed, and he had to undergo surgery.
