Masanjia Investigation Team Leader: A Robber Acts Like A Cop
On April 19th the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in Liaoning
released the result of an investigation into torture done to
detainees at Masanjia Reeducation-through-labor (RTL) Camp.
It denied some tortures exposed in a recent media report,
“Walking out of Masanjia.”
The unveiled tortures included being hung up with
the body pulled in the opposite directions,
being forced to sit on a cable reel as a stool,
or being tied to a bed in a body-tearing position.
“Comments are closed” on all major media websites
and web portals that have published this probe result.
China’s netizens called the CCP “the most shameless ever”.
Netizen “Agen Baodao” posted, “This probe is
like a robber acting like a cop.”
Netizen “Jeya_Lin” asked, “What’s the sense of
sending a beast to investigate other beasts?
Truth will never come from the mouths of beasts.”
Another netizen posted, “Truth is that once the authorities
deny the exposure, refute the rumor and remove online
posts, it proves the exposure is a real case.”
Netizen “lawyer Ning Qingping” commented:
“If the subordinate officials have really staged tortures,
that is committing crimes.
The superiors have also committed dereliction of duty.
They are ‘on the same vine’, how could they investigate
themselves and find out any guilt of their own? Impossible.”
Reportedly, Zhang Chaoying was deputy head of an official
team that investigated torture at Masanjia RTL Camp.
Zhang was former director of Masanjia RTL Camp.
During his tenure there, 18 female Falun Gong practitioners
were stripped naked.
They were put into cells containing male prisoners,
where they were raped.
