Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhao Fuguang, from Tonghe county, Heilongjiang province was arrested on September 12th. She has been on a hunger strike up ever since. On September 14th, Ms. Zhao was sent to the Wanjia Forced Labour Camp, where she was forced to write the three statements1 to renounce and denounce Falun Gong. She refused, for which she was cruelly beaten and kicked by prison guards Wu Hongxun, Guan Jie and Zhou Muqi. Then she was tortured with "sitting on an iron chair2". In the meantime, she was injected with drugs and was not allowed to go to toilet for long time, from which she suffered from incontinence. She was not unfastened from the iron chair until she became unable to urinate on September 17th. From that day, the prison guards tortured her with force feeding by sticking a pipe through her throat into her stomach, three times a day. They changed the routine to two times a day from September 25th.

The main perpetrators: Wu Hongxun, home telephone 86-451-82145670, Guan Jie, Zhou Muqi and Jia Zuiyan.

Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhang Cuijuan, from Tonghe County, was arrested on September 12th and then sent to the Wanjia Labour Camp. She refused to write the "three statements" and went on a hunger strike for 24 hours to protest the persecution, for which she suffered from the torture "sitting on a iron chair" and was forced to do labour for long time. The Labour Camp does not allow her family members to see her.

Ms. Diao Yuqing has been persecuted ever since she was arrested to the Wanjia Forced Labour Camp on May 11th, 2006. On July 19th, the prison guards Wu Hongxun, Wu Baoyun and Yao Fuchang tortured her inhumanely with long-term hanging. She suffered so much from the torture that her hair became white, her face became dull and she became unable to speak clearly or move her right arm. Recent days, the prison guard Wu Hongxun and others beat her every day, so cruelly that her whole body were covered with injuries.

To cover its crime of persecuting Ms Diao, the 13th group of the Wanjia Labour Camp refused the request of her family members to see her on September 12th and October 10th because they were afraid that information of the persecution might be leaked outside. The family members of Ms. Diao Yuqing and Ms. Liu Shuzhen then launched a lawsuit against the Wanjia Forced Labour Camp. The prison guards were very frightened and had to reduce their violence and stopped the hanging torture of Dafa practitioners because authorities went to the labour camp to investigate the case constantly. Although authorities took no actions to stop their crimes, the prison guards were still afraid and changed their way of treating Ms Liu and Ms. Diao.

We suggest that the family members of Dafa practitioners take action to oppose the persecution.


1. "Three Statements": Practitioners are coerced under brainwashing and torture to write "Repentance Statement," "Guarantee Statement" or 'Dissociation Statement" as proof that they have given up their belief. In the statement, the practitioner is forced to admit remorse for practising Falun Gong, promise to give up Falun Gong, and never again associate with other practitioners or go to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong.

2. Iron Chair: The "Iron chair" is made of iron pipes. Victims are restrained on the iron chairs with both arms and legs tied for a long period of time, see illustration at
