NEW YORK -- Western media reports over the last several days have largely characterised the Communist Party's decision to close the widely-scorned Re-education Through Labour (RTL) system as progress in the area of human rights.

The tubes are sometimes left in a practitioner’s stomach for days or weeks, causing severe infections, or pulled out and reinserted repeatedly.
The practitioners are often “fed” irritants such as highly concentrated salt water, hot pepper oil, boiling water, or detergent. READ MORE
