Female Falun Gong Practitioners Tortured to Disability in the Baoding Labor Camp  
Print  E-mail 

 

Falun Gong practitioners detained in the Baoding Labor Camp in Hebei Province are not allowed to have any visitors if they refuse to give up Falun Gong. Practitioners are forced to do hard labor for more than 11-12 hours daily. Sometimes they even work until 1:00 a.m. The following are a few cases of persecution against female Falun Gong practitioners detained in the Women's Brigade in the Baoding Labor Camp:

 

1.  Ma Qingyun, female, resident of Xiong County, was force-fed by guards during her hunger strike to protest her detention. They pinched her nose, pried open her mouth with a big spoon, and held her teeth with pliers, breaking off her two front teeth. They forced liquid food into her mouth; from there, it went into her lungs. She often coughed up blood and was constantly brainwashed. She got up at 5 a.m. and went to bed at 11 p.m.. In time, she had pleurisy and intestinal adhesions. Even after more than one year, the camp authorities still would not release her on a "medical" bail.

2.  Ma Zhanmei, female, resident of Laiyuan County, went on a nine-day hunger strike to protest being forced to write a statement renouncing Falun Gong. In the end, because she was dying, the authorities finally asked her family members to come and take care of her. On April 22, 2003 she suffocated during force-feeding and was sent to the No. 252 Hospital, but it was too late. She died in the hospital.

3.  Wang Junxian, female, resident of Boye County, was deprived of sleep for almost two months, from April to May 2002, while she was subjected to forced brainwashing and torture. During this time, she was kept cuffed and shackled. She was disabled due to the persecution and was still not able to walk after 10 months.

4.  Tang Guihong, female, was beaten and kicked by two inmates on April 17, 2003. They grabbed her by the hair in order to bang her head against the wall. She was violently slapped, leaving hand marks on her face that were still visible after four days. Her legs were seriously injured when she was kicked with heavy-duty boots; she could not even stand or walk. She was then handcuffed to a chair for the whole day and night. She was refused any medical treatment.

5.  Gao Chunlian, female, was handcuffed to a chair for one week in July 2002 because she refused to read materials defaming Falun Gong. After that, she was forced to undergo brainwashing and was made to stand and squat for long periods of time. Since Ms. Gao would not cooperate with the brainwashing, the guard ordered three inmates to slap her more than 100 times on her face. They hit her on the chin, face, and eyes and grabbed her by the hair in order to bang her head against the wall. Then they kicked her legs from behind to force her to kneel down on the ground. They tortured her like this until they were exhausted and covered with sweat. The next day, Ms. Gao's face was swollen and she could not open her eyes; her joints were injured and her hair was falling out in clumps.
