In May 2002, Mr. Jiang was arrested and then detained in the Lanzhou 1st Detention Center, the Xiguoyuan Detention Center.

At his sentencing, Mr. Jiang was on the verge of death, and at first, the Lanzhou Prison refused to admit him, but the Detention Center police circumvented the regulations to force the prison to admit Mr. Jiang.
