It’s a hell on earth. The Masanjia Labor Camp in China’s northeastern Liaoning has become synonymous with the brutality of the Chinese regime’s shady legal system.
Now, one survivor of the camp’s heinous torture has put out a detailed video re-enacting her personal hell.
[Zhu Guiqin, Masanjia Labor Camp Survivor]:
“Even Fascist torture does not include such inhumane acts. The inhumane penalties, corporal punishments, physical tortures and psychological persecutions by the Public Security Agency as mentioned here, are simply beyond description.”
Zhu is from Fushun City, Liaoning Province. She was sent to Masanjia for three years in 2004 for petitioning for her brother. He was left disabled after three years in a labor camp.
Zhu says she was brutally mistreated in Masanjia, with torture methods like electric shocks to her face and genitals. Being suspended and beaten. Being forced fed and injected with unknown drugs.
Zhu isn’t alone. Her eldest sister is still at the Masanjia labor camp, also for petitioning for their brother.
Chinese police can send people to labor camps for up to four years without a trial. The system has become the dumping ground for a wide range of dissidents that government officials find inconvenient.
[Xu Li, Falun Gong Practitioner]:
“In the Masanjia Labor Camp I was tortured in many ways. Including being suspended for a long time, having my mouth pried open, injected with drug…getting handcuffed to a radiator for three days without sleep, force fed with mustard and being tied up for long periods of time to iron pipes.”
For Zhu Guiqin, her nightmare didn’t end when she finished her labor camp sentence. She continued to petition. Last April, Zhu says Fushun officials hired a gang in Beijing to publicly rape her before sending her back to Fushun. Police there refused to file a case, saying the attack happened in Beijing.
[Zhu Guiqin, Masanjia Survivor]:
“I cannot help but shout: “Down with the CCP rogues! CCP’s rogue government will soon perish! Petitioners will always suffer from injustice under CCP rule!”
Zhu Guiqin released her video in the hope that the international community would become aware of what happens in the Masanjia Labor Camp. She’s also seeking legal assistance to sue Fushun’s law enforcement authorities.
