Dafa Practitioner Zhang Dabi from Shuangqiao District, Chongqing City passed away in August 2002 as a result of the persecution

Ms. Zhang Dabi lived at the Motor Company residential area in the Shuangqiao District, Chongqing City. She lost her parents when she was a child and her older brother raised her. She had been in poor health ever since she was young and later suffered from breast cancer. When Ms. Zhang started practicing Falun Gong in 1997, her health improved dramatically and the cancer disappeared within three months.

In July 1999, dictator Jiang Zemin and his followers began the brutal persecution against Falun Gong and slandered Dafa and Master. Ms. Zhang was arrested in the beginning of 2002 for appealing on behalf of Falun Gong. An individual named Wu from the residential committee and local police officer Liu took her to the Longtanzi Police Station in Shuangqiao District and interrogated her, during which time they subjected Ms. Zhang to torture. Later, police searched her home looking for Falun Dafa materials or information on other practitioners, but did not find anything.

Ms. Zhang was sentenced to one year of forced labor. Authorities at the Chongqing Women's Forced Labor Camp subjected her to physical torture and mental torment. Her health deteriorated quickly. Hospital treatment in Chengdu City failed to save her. One of her family members took her back to hometown in Wangu, and she passed away shortly afterwards in August 2002.
