Three Elderly Practitioners Persecuted by Liu Hong from Mingjiang Community Security in Chengdu City, Sichuan Province

Mingjiang Community Security officer Liu Hong has relentlessly followed Communist regime orders to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. Recently he cooperated with people from the Longquan 610 Office1 and arrested three elderly practitioners Ms. Zhang Cifang, Ms. Shi Lanfang and Ms. Li Fangling--and took them to a brainwashing centre.

From June to December 2003, Liu Hong had already started cooperating with the Longquanyi District 610 Office in Chengdu City to arrest practitioners Ms. Zhang Cifang and Ms. Shi Lanfang and take them to the Hongshunshanzhuan Brainwashing Centre. Between April and August 2004, he took practitioner Ms. Li Fangling to the Xinjin Brainwashing Centre in Chengdu City and also apprehended Ms. Shi Lanfang again and took her to Hanlinshanzhuan Brainwashing Centre.

From September 30th to October 30th, 2007, Liu Hong again used a web of deceit to arrest practitioners Ms. Shi Lanfang (72 years old), Ms. Zhang Cifang (72 years old) and Ms. Li Fangling (in her sixties). He took them to Hongshunshanzhang Brainwashing Centre.

After these three practitioners were detained in the brainwashing centre, they were closely monitored around the clock and forced to watch videos that slandered Falun Gong. Oftentimes, they were faced with one or more people who continually yelled at them and tried to brainwash them. They were often verbally abused and beaten. The Judicial Bureau deputy director, Chen Decai, once cruelly beat Ms. Shi Lanfang.

In the brainwashing centre, those in charge reduced the amount of food given to these practitioners. The practitioners also had limited time to eat, to wash clothes and to sleep. They even had a set time for using the toilet. The people in the brainwashing centre used various methods to exhaust the practitioners. One time, because Ms. Shi Lanfang was in the toilet longer than her allowed time, the director of the 610 Office, Chen Jiuyun, ordered a male security guard to break into the toilet and drag her out.

On one occasion, Ms. Zhang Cifang sat down a little bit longer than permitted and the personal cangue (who was ordered by Liu Hong to watch her) said that she was doing the Falun Gong exercises and screamed at her. Another time Liu Hong said, "I don't have a gun, but if I had one, I would shoot you."

These personal cangues also kept the door and windows shut around the clock. They lit poisonous mosquito incense and then ran out of the room, and watched Ms. Zhang Cifang through the windows. The poisonous smoke caused Ms. Zhang Cifang to cough badly. When she tried to open the door a little bit, the personal cangues closed it immediately. The agony was intolerable.

Ms. Zhang Cifang didn't have a change of clothes. She asked for clothes several times, and they finally allowed her to get some. Someone brought her two pairs of new socks and asked Liu Hong to take them to her. Liu Hong kept them for himself. So during the month she was in the brainwashing centre, Ms. Zhang Cifang had only one pair of socks.
