Ms. Ni Shuqin

Ms. Ni Shuqin, from Liaoning Province, was arrested and detained by the police several times because she refused to renounce her belief in Falun Dafa. In 2002, she was sentenced to 4 years of imprisonment. She was tortured to the point of being critically ill and extremely weak in Dabei Prison of Shenyang, Liaoning Province. On October 16, 2003, Ms. Ni was released on bail for medical treatment. She died on March 13, 2005. The details are as follows:

Ms. Ni Shuqin, 65 years old, had been a resident of the Hekanzi Village of Hekanzi Town of Linyuan City, Liaoning Province. The police from Hekanzi Town Police Station and the Political Security Section of the Linyuan City Public Security Bureau, had forcibly sent her to a brainwashing center once before. Ms. Ni had been detained in the First Detention Center and then in the Second Detention Center of Linyuan City. She was then sentenced to 4 years of imprisonment. The first three times the police attempted to put her in prison, the prisons refused to take her. On October 17, 2002, Dabei Prison agreed to accept her.

While at Dabei Prison, Ni Shuqin suffered barbarous beatings very often. She was also forcibly given injections of unknown drugs. She had been tortured to an extremely weakened state, causing high blood pressure, and she became emaciated. Due to her fragile condition, Ms. Ni was released on bail for medical treatment. On October 16, 2003, after experiencing various tortures for a year, she was sent back home. But because the authorities continued to harass and threaten her, Ms. Ni was unable to recover from the physical and mental damage. She died on March 13, 2005.

Ms. Ni Shuqin had published an article on Clearwisdom.net on January 3, 2005, exposing what she suffered in the Dabei Prison. She described her experiences in her article as follows,

"I refused to cooperate with the police's wrongdoings. A chief officer called my three children to the prison, in an attempt to coerce me into writing the Guarantee Statement. I refused to do so. The chief officer said to me that if I refused to be "transformed," they would harass my children. They ordered a few collaborators to read slanderous articles against Falun Dafa to me every day. They also forced me to take unknown drugs. I refused to take them, so the cellmates and collaborators dragged me to an empty room, and violently forced the pills into my mouth. I still refused to swallow them, so they pushed my head onto cement bricks on the floor. My forehead has become severely swollen many times from this abuse. They also ordered a group of people to drag me to a hospital, and forced me to take injections of unknown drugs. The chief officer tried to coerce me into agreeing to a fake 'transformation.' I thought that I would never ever bring such shame on Dafa and that I must validate Dafa openly and honestly. How could I accept a fake 'transformation'? Then the chief officer called my son to prison, attempting to force me into giving up my belief in Falun Dafa through sentimentality. I said to my son in front of the policemen, 'You know Dafa is good and that your mom is a good person. The vicious political regime has persecuted me. They have sent me to this prison. I have already been in this situation. Would anything else scare me? I'll never renounce my Master and never renounce Dafa. I'll never give up my cultivation practice.' Whenever the chief officer tried to force me to write the Guarantee Statement, I refused to follow his orders and continuously sent forth righteous thoughts. Finally they had a policeman write it on my behalf. How vicious it was!"

During those days of persecution, Liu Guofu, the head of the Hekanzi Town Police Station, extorted 1,000 yuan from Ni Shuqin. When she was in Dabei Prison, Ms. Ni's family members had been illegally fined over 10,000 yuan by the prison. Ms. Ni Shuqin's family members even paid the 500-yuan travel expenses of the chief officer for his round trip to the Hekanzi Town Police Station.

Ms. Jiang Guirong

Ms. Jiang Guirong, 70 years old, was from Yanji City, Jilin Province. She learned Falun Dafa in 1995 and had been a diligent Falun Gong practitioner. After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, the police often went to her home to harass her and they arrested her twice. On April 12, 2002, the police took Ms. Jiang away from her home. However, with her family members' rescue efforts, she was released. On March 2, 2003, the police took Ms. Jiang away again. This time she was locked in the Chaoyang Police Station for 3 days. During these three days, she suffered brutal beating and torture, including not being allowed to sleep or eat. She was then sent to a detention center. Ms. Jiang's family members exhausted all their efforts to rescue her. When Jiang Guirong was released again, she had suffered a mental collapse and was unable to recover. Ms. Ni passed away on June 15, 2003.
