Practitioners Tortured in the Second Women's Section of Masanjia Forced Labour Camp, Liaoning Province; Many Injured

In the Second Women's Section of Masanjia Forced Labour Camp in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province, Falun Gong practitioners are being mistreated in a new way, by being forced to take a so-called "100 per cent exam." For this exam they are ordered to acknowledge the mistreatment they have been subjected to, including mental humiliation. Because the practitioners have refused to endorse the mistreatment, the guards beat and torture them.

On October 7th and 8th, 2008, guards tortured practitioners Ms. Wang Chunying, Ms. Qi Zhenhong, Ms. Zhong Shujian, and Ms. Zhang Qilin from 6 to 72 hours. As a result, Ms. Qi suffered a mental disorder, Ms. Wang could not straighten her hands, Ms. Zhang's arms were broken and she became crippled, and Ms. Zhong was subjected to the "stretching torture" for 48 hours.

Ms. Zhong Shujuan was tortured because she refused to sign the exam form. The head of the Second Subgroup of the First Group, Zhao Guorong, violently punched and kicked her. When she called out, "Falun Gong is good," she was sent to the group office for punishment. Group head Zhang Chunguang, Zhao Guorong, prison guard Zhao, and Head of the Discipline Section Wang Yanping beat her violently by kicking and punching her in the face. After she fell to the ground they kicked her face with their boots. Ms. Zhang's face was swollen and disfigured, she had black eyes, and blood poured out of her mouth and nose.

The guards beat her for 40 minutes. After that she was taken to a torture cell and given the "stretching torture." On her way to the torture cell, the guards covered her face with a mask because they were afraid that others might see the injuries on her face. Ms. Zhong was not released from the stretching torture until 60 hours later. She could not straighten her arms, the left side of her chest was in acute pain, and her legs were crippled. Guard Zhang Chunguang was the one who tortured her. Group head Li Mingyu shouted, "Feed her the Falun Gong abortion drugs." These drugs have serious effects and can cause mental disorder.

Up to now practitioners have been tortured every month simply because they refuse to sign the exam form. Each time the practitioners are ordered to sign, one by one. If they refuse, they are beaten right on the spot.

The guards involved in the torture of Falun Gong practitioners in the Second Women's Section are Li Mingyu, Zhang Chunguang, Zhao Guorong, and Guan Lin.
