Under the leadership of prison chief Wang Jinshan, prison guards were urged to viciously persecute Dafa practitioners. They subjected the practitioners to all kinds of brutal tortures if those practitioners refused to "reform."1
Among the torture instruments is small stool. This instrument is 5 centimetres (2 inches) wide, 15 centimetres (6 inches) long, 5 centimetres (2 inches) high. Practitioners were forced to sit on this stool daily for over 15 or 16 hours. And they were forced to sit with their backs straight, with feet extending 30 centimetres (12 inches) from the stool. Having the legs together like this puts pressure on the full weight of the body, concentrating this pressure on one's bottom. Practitioners were forced to sit on this stool in this manner every day. Practitioner Liu Zhengang's bottom had rotted and thus suffered from an infection. Still they didn't release him.
If a practitioner resists this torture, he would be forced to wear handcuffs and shackles weighing over 20 lbs., locked into a small cell, and tortured every day. Shackles replaced the other torture devices. For so-called interrogation, they would force the practitioner to go up and down the stairs multiple times every day. Their purpose was to rub the shackles against the ankles. This happened two or three times a day. Practitioner's ankles were rubbed, causing bleeding and rotting. Police also incited prisoners to push a practitioner from the back or step on the shackles, so as to cause the practitioners to fall to the ground. In April 2005, prison guard Liu Yunling even forced a newly arrived practitioner to wear handcuffs and shackles, put the practitioner into a small cell and otherwise tortured him/her for one month.
During this year, guard Yang Bo used shackles as a torture instrument to torture practitioner Cai Lirong several times. Each time it lasted for over ten days. This kind of torture is still being used today.
Guard Fan Yasheng used a cigarette lighter to burn practitioner Zhou Changhe's face when forcing practitioners to reform. Scars still remain on Zhou's face today.
Prison guards Lu Wenyuan, Fan Yasheng, Yang Bo, Liu Yunling compelled prisoners to forcibly "reform" practitioners to avoid being held responsible. Prisoners then deprived practitioners of sleep for 24 hours, put sleeping pills in the water and soup, forbade practitioners to use the toilet, beat practitioners and subjected them to other atrocities. Criminals tortured practitioners ruthlessly to obtain reductions in their prison terms.
