Documenting Persecution: Videos of Torture Victims Smuggled out of Chinese Prison
The Epoch Times Jennifer Zeng reports
'“Warning: This article contains graphic images of a torture victim.
Since the persecution of Falun Gong began in 1999, astonishing accounts of torture inside Chinese labor camps, detention centers, and jails have been reported, but taking photos or video footage inside these places has never been possible, much less smuggling out such material.
A Falun Gong practitioner named Yu Ming changed that.
Yu recorded videos inside both the notorious Masanjia Labor Camp and Benxi Prison, and managed to smuggle the footage out.
In Benxi Prison, Yu used hidden cameras to document the death of one practitioner due to torture, and preserved the written account of another. These are their stories.”
Two new reports shed light on a gruesome practice.
