Print  E-mail 


Ms. Shao Benyan, female, 46, resident of Yichun District, Yichun City, Heilongjiang Province




The Wanjia Labor Camp, Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province



Guards of the Wanjia Labor Camp, Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province



In October 2001, Ms. Shao Benyan was arrested and sent to a detention center for distributing Falun Gong materials. In July 2002, she was sentenced to three years of forced labor at the Wanjia Labor Camp because she refused to give up her belief. In the labor camp, she was closely monitored, given very little food to eat, and forced to do intensive labor. As a result, both of her hands were rubbed raw and festered. Meanwhile, she was beaten by guards. Once she was locked in a confinement cell for one month.


Recently Ms. Shao has become blind due to the torture. We are very concerned about Ms. Shao’s wellbeing and hereby request an urgent action by the United Nations to safeguard the life of Ms. Shao.
