Ms. Qin Qingfang, 63, Dies from Persecution at the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Qin Qingfang, a Falun Dafa Practitioner from Fushun City, Liaoning Province, died at the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp on July 9, 2005, after being illegally detained and persecuted for many years. She is one of many Falun Dafa practitioners who have died while being persecuted at this notorious institution.
Ms. Qin Qingfang, 63, lived at Yigong Community, Jiangjun Street, Shuncheng District, Fushun City of Liaoning Province. She began practicing Falun Gong in 1998. Before she started practicing Falun Gong, she had various illnesses. After she began practicing, however, all of her illnesses vanished without treatment. Both her body and mind were purified.
Since July 20, 1999, Qin Qingfang had gone to Beijing many times to appeal for Falun Gong's good name, and was arrested and detained every time. In December 2000, Ms. Qi was sentenced to three years of forced labor.
In December 2000, Ms. Qi was arrested for being persistent in her practice of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." Her husband witnessed her arrest and was so frightened that he suffered a stroke, losing the ability to speak and also becoming paralyzed. With no one else to look after Ms. Qi's aging father and her eight-year-old grandson, the authorities still sentenced Ms. Qi to three years of forced labor.
Hearing the news of his daughter's arrest and sentencing to forced labor, Ms. Qi's already blind father could not take the shock, and passed away over the Chinese New Year of 2003. Ms. Qi's paralyzed husband contracted vasculitis, and his right leg had to be amputated. This once happy family was thus devastated by the persecution. Ms. Qi's husband was sixty-three years old. He lost his job and had no income. The sixty-year-old Qi Qingfang was also unemployed. The community forbade them from applying for even the lowest degree of social welfare, so the family lived under great hardship.
Ms. Qi suffered brutal persecution while detained at the Fushun City Forced Labor Camp, including torture methods such as handcuffing, dousing with cold water, electric shock, sleep deprivation and beatings by multiple culprits in an isolated room. After enduring such inhumane torture and severe persecution, she was released on the Chinese New Year in 2004.
After she returned home, these lawless people did not stop persecuting her. Her phone was tapped, and she was followed and closely monitored day and night.
In July 2004, just a few months after she was released, personnel from the Committee of Political and Legislative Affairs of the Shuncheng District and Jiangjun neighborhood arrested Ms. Qi once again and sent her to a brainwashing center. She firmly refused to cooperate at the brainwashing class, and was thus sent to Masanjia Forced Labor Camp in September 2004 for three years of forced labor. On July 9, 2005, she died as a result of persecution at the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp. The details of her death are not yet known, but the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp returned Qi's ashes to her family in a box. We hope that overseas practitioners can help clarify the facts to her family.
