(Clearwisdom.net) On the evening of July 23, Dafa practitioner Mr. Yuan Qingjiang died from long time persecution by wardens in Daqing Prison. This is the third death in the last three months following the deaths of Wang Hongde and Xu Jishan.

In the first half of 2005, Deputy Warden Jiang Shuchen and the 610 Office head Guo Chuntang launched a new round of persecution of practitioners after they came from a meeting in Xi'an. They ordered that all the practitioners who were holding a hunger strike be force-fed with corn curd every two or three days, whether or not it would endanger their lives. In a meeting, Guo announced, "It doesn't matter if it causes them to die." Li Fengjiang of the 7th jail area claimed, "Those who refuse to 'transform' should be sent directly to the crematorium." By the end of May, Xu Jishan had been persecuted to death in 15 days, and Wang Hongde died 15 days after being bailed out for medical treatment.

Mr. Yuan Qingjiang from Harbin City started practicing Dafa in June 1997. After the CCP began the persecution, Mr. Yuan was sent to Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp for persecution and was physically abused for a long time. During the People's Congress meetings in March 2003, he was arrested and sentenced. Warden Zhang Jiushan and detainees Guan Dejun and Wang Shijun tortured him and caused severe injuries to his chest. In July 2004 he was transferred to the 6th jail area of Daqing Prison.

After May 1, 2005, the prison aggravated the persecution of practitioners, and over 10 practitioners were forced to hold a hunger strike, for which they were tortured brutally. In early May, Mr. Yuan Qingjiang was tortured for over 10 days, during which he was brutally force-fed.

Dong Fenghuan, the head of the 6th jail area, tortured Mr. Yuan personally. Mr. Yuan then vomited blood and suffered from liver hardening and other illnesses. He was extremely emaciated and had a terrible appearance.

At present, the authorities are still blocking the details of Mr. Yuan's death.
