1. Ms. Huang Qiaolan, 58, was illegally arrested on November 20, 2001, while she distributed truth clarifying information about the persecution of Falun Gong in residential areas. Authorities held her at the Luodian Detention Center in the Baoshan District for one year. In order to rescue her, her family had to pay nearly 50,000 yuan, and do things such as buy meals for the officials. After this extortion, these officials sentenced her to three years of custody to be served outside of prison, from November 20, 2001, to November 20, 2004. After her release, Ms. Huang constantly received threats and was harassed by personnel from the local 610 Office and neighborhood committee. Liu Bing and others from the 610 Office in Dachang Town have taken her to brainwashing centers twice. Ms. Huang underwent extreme physical and spiritual suffering, and was diagnosed with lung cancer. She died on October 29, 2004, while still serving the illegal jail term.

Recently, police officer Wei Zhiyun of the Baoshan District received karmic retribution for her wrongdoings. Her entire body swelled up and her face became deformed. Wei Zhiyun had been transferred in 2005 from the Baoshan District Detention Center to the National Security Team, which mainly persecutes and tortures Falun Gong practitioners. She joined the Chinese Communist Party and was then promoted to Section Leader in the same year. In early 2007, she boasted, "I don't believe in retribution. The Party gave me everything. I will work for it, and human beings have to die anyway, it doesn't matter." About 20 days later, Wei died due to karmic retribution for her evil acts.
