On August 1, 2002, 52 policemen attended a class held at Minxi Prison called a "transformation breakthroughs, key staff training class," teaching strategies to force Falun Gong practitioners to write confessions against their belief.
After this, on August 12, 2002, under the personal supervision of Mr. Luo, the second-in-command of the prison, and under the direct control of education department official Mr. Shi, policemen started to practise brainwashing on the new Falun Gong detainees at this prison and on those who resolutely refused to change. Their methods were violent and bloody.
A middle-level team of policemen took the Falun Gong practitioners to the prison's meeting building, one practitioner to each room. A team of two or three policemen would constantly monitor them. In the room, the police would play brainwashing videos 24 hours a day and not let the Falun Gong practitioners sleep. At the same time, they would roughly tie the practitioners' hands behind their backs, forcing their arms high up to the windowsill. Many of the Falun Gong practitioners screamed in pain during this mistreatment. The basic aim of the policemen was to force the practitioners to sign the confession and transformation letters. The prison officials had given the policemen an absolute order to complete this task. Achieving this goal would be directly linked to their career advancement. Under this intense pressure, every team of policemen would take turns 24 hours a day to pressure the Falun Gong practitioners.
This is the way in which Fujian's "Province-level civilized prison" illegally carries out the immoral and unconstitutional "law," illegally and violently destroying human rights.
We truly hope that decent people choose together to criticize and stop this criminal behavior instigated and controlled by Jiang's dictatorial regime. We also hope that all international human rights organizations will pay close attention to the terrible human rights situation in China.
