Letter To the Editor: Dafa Practitioner Ms. Dong Cuifang Tortured To Death At Daxing Forced Labor Camp; Authorities Block Her Family's Appeal
April 14, 2003
Note from the editors: Regarding the lawsuit filed in the USA against Jiang Zemin, no persons are exempt from the systematic persecution initialized by Jiang Zemin. Under Jiang's order, any person believing in or declaring support for Falun Gong will be arrested, detained, and suffer cruel punishment etc. Falun Dafa practitioners who have suffered from the Jiang Regime's systematic persecution, and their family members, are thereby considered plaintiffs in this lawsuit.
On March 19, 2003, Dafa practitioner Dong Cuifang died from the persecution she received at the Daxing female forced labor camp in Beijing. When she died, blood and wounds covered her entire body. Her four limbs were swollen, causing her bones to become separated from her flesh, and a large hole was observed in her head as her skull appeared to have been punctured. (For details see: http://www.clearwisdom. net/emh/articles/2003/3/30/33970.html). Her parents requested a legal appeal and worked on the case for almost one month. The lawless authorities at the Daxing labor camp in Beijing do not dare to acknowledge their crime, as they fear the consequences of their heinous actions. Instead, they spread lies that Dong Cuifang died as a result of a mental collapse. Dong's parents had to request the Beijing law appraisal medical service center to review and confirm the case. Now, Dong's body has been autopsied. According to reliable information, the results will be confirmed on April 14th. As long as there is hope, we will help Dong's parents win this lawsuit. Since then, Dong's corpse has been relocated to the morgue of the Beijing law appraisal medical service center.
We earnestly request that the editorial department of Clearwisdom.net present our wishes to a federal courtroom, regarding the reinvestigation of Dong's case, as soon as possible. Also, we request that the International Red Cross independently examine Dong's corpse.
Recently, the authorities demanded that Dong's parents rescind their legal appeal and informed them they would be given over ten thousand Yuan [500 Yuan is the average monthly income for an urban worker in China.] in exchange for dropping the case. However Dong's parents rejected this offer. Now, the authorities are attempting other deceitful means in order to prevent Dong's parents from going forward with their appeal.
