(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Li Heng from Yongle Village, Zhuozhou City, Hebei Province was forced to leave his home to avoid being arrested by the police. However, he was later arrested in Beijing City, sentenced to three years of forced labor, and then a further year of forced labor. He suffered a stroke while he was incarcerated in the Baoding Labor Camp and died on June 12, 2005 after three years of paralysis. More details follow.

The police illegally searched and ransacked his home in April 2001 because he had clarified the truth to people. Police put his name on a wanted list. Mr. Li and his wife had no choice but to leave their home and became destitute in order to avoid being arrested where he lived. But police from the Babaoshan Substation captured and arrested him. He was tortured with a burning cigarette stuck in his nose, forced to sit on the tiger bench, forced to stand barefoot while wooden skewers punctured his toes, and shocked with an electric baton. He was then transferred back to his local detention center and was sentenced to three years in a labor camp.

To get Mr. Li to write a guarantee statement to not cultivate Falun Dafa, the guards in Baoding Labor Camp deprived him of sleep, forced him to sit in a squat position while holding his knee for three days, forced him to stand while other prisoners beat him and shocked him with electric batons. These tortures nearly destroyed Mr. Li. His blood pressure was at 220 in 2002. The doctors found he had suffered a stroke. He was bailed out on medical parole but became paralyzed two weeks after being released. Nevertheless, police from the Shuangta Department frequently came to his home to harass him. Mr. Li Heng died on June 12, 2005.
