Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Li Guiqin, a resident of Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province, was arrested when she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong on November 17, 2000. She was taken back to Jiamusi City Detention Center and detained for fifteen days. It cost her family members over 5,000 yuan to get Ms. Li released. Her salary was also withheld by her employer. The mistreatment led to a financial loss to Ms. Li of over 10,000 yuan.

In late February 2002, policeman Liu Dehui, from the local station, frequently went to Ms. Li's house to harass her. On April 10, 2002, the police arrested Ms. Li and searched her house. She was taken to the police station and was not released until 9:00 p.m.. Later, the police again wanted to detain her, so Ms. Li had to leave home to avoid being arrested.

On the night of September 26, 2002, the police again went to Ms. Li's house. They broke into and searched her house, and then forced her into a police vehicle. When she was in the police station, Ms. Li Guiqin was locked to a chair with handcuffs and was not allowed to use the restroom. Ms. Li was then cuffed and taken to Jiamusi City Detention Center. To protest being mistreated, Ms. Li went on a hunger strike for ten days. She had symptoms of heart disease, but she was still not released. On October 30, 2002, Ms. Li was sentenced to three years of forced labor and was taken to Jiamusi City Labor Camp.

On March 27, 2003, the authorities tortured her again in an attempt to force Ms. Li to write the "five statements." On February 17, 2004, Ms. Li was locked with cuffs for four days and three nights. At about 1:00 p.m. on February 20, 2003, guards Mu Zhenjuan (female) and Wang Tiejun (male), kicked Ms. Li's face with their heavy leather boots. Two of Ms. Li's incisors were knocked out at that time and three teeth became loose from the kicks. There was blood everywhere on the ground and on her body. Her term was extended without any reason. For six months, her family members could not visit her.
