Older Practitioner Ms. Li Qiuling Dies as a Result of Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Li Qiuling is over 60 years old, and is an employee of Langfang City Reed-Craft Factory in Hebei Province. She began practicing Falun Gong in 1995. In May 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. The Beijing police took all of her cash, and she was taken to the local police station by officers from the Liaison Office of Langfang City in Beijing. After she was brutally beaten at the police station, she was taken to a detention center and detained for a month. During this time, police from the Langfang City Department, along with her employer, broke into her house and stole 1,000 yuan without a warrant. Even now no one will admit to taking 1,000 yuan from her family.
In July, 2001, Ms. Li went to Beijing again and was stopped by security personnel from her workplace. She was taken to the detention center and detained. Ms. Li held a hunger strike and was released twelve days later.
In 2002, a group of people guided by Cao (male), the head of factory security, took Ms. Li to the factory. A couple of days after she was detained at her workplace, she was taken to the labor camp without any legal proceedings. She was released because she did not pass the physical exam, but was "fined" 1,000 yuan.
In 2003, Ms. Li went to her parents' hometown to clarify the truth and deliver truth clarifying materials. She was reported and sentenced to forced labor by local police. One month after she was tortured at the labor camp, many diseases suddenly popped up. The guards at the labor camp were worried about it. They let her family members pick her up and she was fined another 7,000 yuan.
After she returned from the labor camp, her health deteriorated, and she passed away in September, 2006.
