Dafa practitioner Ms. Yan Congjuan, 33, lived in Room 102, No. 68 in Chunchao Village, the Xin District, Wuxi City, Jiangsu Province. She has been sent to brainwashing sessions held by the 610 Office three times since 2002. She was forced to stand, deprived of sleep or use of the restroom, and not allowed to take a shower. The lawless officials burnt her with cigarettes and shoved cigarettes into her nostrils while covering her mouth with their hands. Yan Congjuan held a hunger strike to protest the persecution and was force-fed. She also lost her job due to long-term detention.

Dafa practitioner Ms. Dai Xianglan, 57, lived in Room 203, No. 51, Houxixi, Wuxi City, Jiangsu Province.
