Torture and Harassment of Falun Gong Practitioners Escalates at Jiamusi Prison in Heilongjiang Province

Jiamusi Prison has intensified its persecution of practitioners since July 20th, 2012. Warden Ye Feng held a prison cadre's meeting where everyone was ordered to put more effort into restricting practitioners, searching cells, strip-searching, and searching all personal belongings. The harassment and mistreatment has not subsided and is now even more extensive than before.

The guards in the Second Division began to implement the new directive at 4:00 p.m. on July 20th. Wang Zhiyong, the deputy manager of the Second Division, along with Zhang Geqiu, head of the First Squadron and Liu Bo, head of the Fourth Squadron, were in charge of implementing the orders.

Practitioner Mr. Zhang Yuezeng was listening to an MP3 audio when guards rushed into his cell and confiscated his MP3 player and some materials about Falun Gong which they found under his mattress. The next day, Wang Zhiyong demanded that Mr. Zhang reveal the source of the materials. Mr. Zhang refused, so he was transferred to a solitary cell.

Wang Zhiyong has refused to listen to the facts about Falun Gong and holds strong hatred against the practice. He orders inmates to torture practitioners and was personally involved in torturing practitioner Mr. Liu Chuanjiang to death on March 7th, 2011.

The guards in the Fourth Division commenced their increased harassment and torture at 8:00 p.m. on July 21st, as ordered by Liu Wenge, the division manager. Fan Yujun, second Squadron Head, guards Yuan Ye and Liu Junlong, and division cadre Ye Xiaojun aggressively participated in the persecution. Under Fan Yujun's orders, Yuan Ye and Liu Junlong tore up flyers exposing the persecution of Falun Gong. Fan also used this as an excuse to restrict the personal freedom of practitioners Mr. Tan Fengjiang and Mr. Zhang Peixun.

According to insider information, this persecution was ordered by Ye Feng. In February and March 2011, Mr. Qin Yueming, Mr. Yu Yungang, and Mr. Liu Chuanjiang were tortured to death in Jiamusi Prison. Due to pressure and strong threats from the Jiamusi 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong), the families of Mr. Yu Yungang and Mr. Liu Chuanjiang agreed to cremate the bodies.

Mr. Qin Yuming's family proceeded to take the prison officials to court, despite his wife and youngest daughter being imprisoned in forced labour camps. Ye appears to be very worried because of not being able to settle the case prior to a trial.

One day in July, a practitioner told Ye the facts about Falun Gong and advised him to quit the Chinese Communist Party. Instead of listening to the practitioner, Ye turned around and ordered more intense harassment and torture of practitioners.
