At Least 14 Female Falun Gong Practitioners Currently Detained in Changchun City No. 4 Detention Center
(Minghui.org) Changchun City No. 4 Detention Center, located at 5277 Haoyue Blvd, the Lvyuan District, Changchun, is currently detaining at least 14 female Falun Gong practitioners.
The No. 4 Detention Center shares the same address with the No. 2 Detention Center, where an unknown number of male Falun Gong practitioners are detained.
The 18 cells in the Changchun No. 4 Detention Center are divided into three sections. Cells 101 to 106 make up section 1; cells 201 to 206, section 2; and cells 301 to 306, section 3.
Four surveillance cameras are located in each corner of the cells, with one spherical rotating camera in the middle of the ceiling, monitoring the inmates' every move.
Each cell was designed to accommodate a maximum of 18 inmates, but now there are about 35 inmates in each one. As a result, everyone has to lay on her side to sleep.
All the inmates take one of the four duty shifts each night, from 8:30 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. The inmates on duty must walk around and are not allowed to lie down. That means about nine inmates are walking while the others sleep.
At mealtime, the inmates stand in line for a seat on a bench. Next, they have to stand in another line to get steamed bread. To get soup, they have to stand in a third line. That means that each inmate has to wait in three lines before getting a meal. Most of the time, the food is cold by the time they eat. Before they can eat, they have to say, “Thank you, guard. Thank you, Ma'am.” “Ma'am” refers to the person who doles out the food.
Every day the inmates are ordered to recite the cell rules, do the exercises, and sit straight on a woodend board (which is turned into a bed at night).
Falun Gong practitioners are tormented physically and mentally throughout the day.
According to informants, the Falun Gong practitioners presently detained in this detention center include:Ms. Wang Jinxiang, Ms. Cong Nan, Ms. Li Jing (cell 305);Ms. Zhao Qiuyue, Ms. Yang Peixia, Ms. Wu Yanan (cell 202);Ms. Zhao Xu, Ms. Zhou Xiuzhi, Ms. Wang Xiuying, Ms. Wang Hongyan, Ms. Yin Ali (cell 106);Ms. Yao Changli (cell 304);as well as Ms. Li Wei and her mother Ms. Xia Guizhen and other Falun Gong practitioners whose names are unknown.
Sometimes practitioners are transferred from one cell to another, but they may not communicate with each other.
Changchun City practitioners Ms. Jin Yan, Ms. Wang Hongyan, Ms. Che Pingping, Ms. Chen Yanhua, and others were transferred to the Yushu City Detention Center.
Some of them were secretly tried and taken to the Changchun City Women's Prison, without notifying their families.
The male Falun Gong practitioners currently detained in Changchun No. 2 Detention Center include: Mr. Xie Rongchun, Mr. Shi Xingjia (from Meihekou City, Jilin Province), Mr. Wang Xinying, Mr. Du He, Mr. Wang Enguo, and others. More male practitioners are currently detained in the No. 3 Detention Center.
