New Brainwashing Centers in Linyi City, Shandong Province, Target Falun Gong Practitioners

Dec. 16, 2021 |   By a Minghui correspondent in Shandong Province, China

(Minghui.org) Ms. Hu Jinping of the Luozhuang District in Linyi City, Shandong Province, was recently taken to Linyi Brainwashing Center not long after she was released from prison for practicing Falun Gong, a spiritual practice that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

The authorities are setting up new brainwashing centers in other counties in Linyu City. The locations of these centers change frequently and employ a new strategy: detaining only a small number of practitioners at a time and exerting more effort on trying to force them to give up their belief in Falun Gong.

Ms. Hu was sentenced to a year and a half in 2018, and her sister Ms. Hu Jinhui was given a nine-year prison term around the same time for their shared faith in Falun Gong.

In addition to Ms. Hu Jinping, other Falun Gong practitioners from the Lanshan District in Linyi City were also taken to the same brainwashing center, where they were ordered to renounce their belief.

Zhang (first name unknown), who works for the Linyi City Geological Team was carried out of his home by a dozen people and taken to the brainwashing center. Along with others who refuse to renounce Falun Gong, he is still being held in the center.
