Tortured to Death: Practitioner Liu Zhibin from Xiguan Village, Wuling Town, Lingqiu County, Shanxi Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Liu Zhibin was from Xiguan Village, Wuling Town, Lingqiu County, Shanxi Province. He had been detained many times for going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. In July 2002 he was sentenced to four years in prison and died in Shanxi Provincial Prison on July 20, 2004.
Mr. Liu Zhibin, 50 years old, was a small business owner in Xiguan Village. As a dedicated Falun Dafa practitioner, he was frequently arrested for daring to tell the true facts about Falun Dafa.
In July 2002, Liu Zhibin was arrested for passing out informative materials
designed to help the public learn more of the facts about Falun Dafa. He was
detained in the Lingqiu County Detention Center several months before beginning
his four-year prison sentence in the No. 1 Shanxi Provincial Prison located in
Qi County. After he died in prison on July 20, 2004, his family was notified
that he had died of a heart attack. But when his family saw his body, they found
it covered with wounds. Handcuff marks were clearly visible on his wrists, as
were many scars from electric batons and wounds from cruel beatings. His body
was in a horrible condition. In the end, prison officials tried to Page: 1
