Mr. Wan Liji, 34 years old at the time of his death, was a policeman with the
Donghu Squad at the Special Police Branch of the Nanchang Public Security
Bureau. He started to practice Falun Dafa in September 1997, which made him both
spiritually and physically healthy.

Wan Liji was illegally persecuted since July 20, 1999. His work unit did not allow him to work, to go home, or to visit his mother, who was imprisoned in a forced labor camp. Occasionally, when he did get home for a couple of days, at least two people were assigned to monitor his activities. He was totally deprived of personal freedom. Since he never agreed to give up practicing Falun Dafa, he was dismissed from his job in November 2000. After a year of harassment by his work unit, Wan Liji became very weak, and his weight fell from 170 jin (187 lb) to 90 jin (99 lb).
In December 2000, Wan Liji went to Beijing to explain the truth about Falun Dafa to the authorities. Police from the Dayuan Police Substation in Nanchang City arrested him and sent him to a detention center, where he was beaten. Eventually, he became so weakened by the mistreatment that he could no longer eat and vomited whenever he ingested anything. He suffered from a constant stomachache and could no longer stand up straight.
His family members asked for his release many times, but the authorities replied with a threatening tone, "If he does not 'transform' (i.e., give up his Falun Gong practice), he will not be released even after he dies." Under those conditions, Wan Liji was detained and tortured for over half a year. In the meantime, his wife and five-month-old baby did not have any means of support.
In May 2001, he finally returned home. Although he was very weak, Wan Liji had to look for a job. During the next three years he tried his hand at everything: newspaper deliveryman, heavy labor construction work, restaurant work, and security guard. Since the "610 Office" and other institutions never ceased to torment him, he was harassed every few days. The police called him even at midnight. Wherever he found a job, the police followed him and forced his employers to fire him. The police also confiscated his household registration permit and his citizenship ID card.
The "610 Office" staff deprived him of his most basic human rights. During 2002 and 2003, they sent him for detention or brainwashing classes three times, where he was tortured intensively. For nearly five years Wan Liji lived in an environment that tortured his body and mind. He left this world on February 9, 2004, leaving his then three-year-old daughter behind. On the second day following his death, his nose was found to be bleeding, a condition that continued until his body was cremated.
