During 2008 and 2009, approximately 300 male Falun Gong practitioners were detained in the Shandong Province Men's Second Forced Labour Camp's Seventh and Eighth Brigades. The camp guards instructed other inmates to mix unknown drugs into food that was fed to practitioners. The drugs debilitated them mentally, as well as physically.
According to some inmates, the prison guards secretly ordered several prisoners to put unknown drugs into the food given to practitioners. The unknown drugs caused symptoms that included headache, dizziness, body numbness, and nosebleed, along with swelling of the face, feet and legs. The prison guards' motives were to destroy the will and spirit of the practitioners and force them to renounce Falun Gong.
The prison guards and prisoners who were involved in drugging the practitioners are the following:
Guards: Li Gongming, Song Nan, Luo Guangrong, Zhang Qin and Bi Haitao.
Prisoners: Jiang Guocheng, Huang Wei, Cong Peikuan, Cao Ren, Yu Songliang and Wang Yong.
In addition, due to these practitioners' firm belief in Falun Gong and their refusal to sign the so-called "Three Statements1", they were subjected to long-term harassment and persecution by the guards and prisoners. This included been brutally beaten, handcuffed, deprived of sleep, forced to sit on a tiger bench and not being allowed to speak or have visits from their family members. The prison guards completely isolated the practitioners from their family members, so their families would not know the severity of the persecution they were experiencing.
1. "Three Statements": Practitioners are coerced under brainwashing and torture to write "Repentance Statement," "Guarantee Statement" or 'Dissociation Statement" as proof that they have given up their belief. In the statement, the practitioner is forced to admit remorse for practising Falun Gong, promise to give up Falun Gong, and never again associate with other practitioners or go to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong.
