Mr. Li Zhiqin Tortured to Death within Three Hours of His Arrest in Ningjin County, Xingtai City, Hebei Province
(Clearwisdom.net) During the evening of September 11, 2007, Ningjin County 610 Office and Zhao County 610 Office officials went to Mr. Li Zhiqin's rented house in Zhao County, illegally arrested him and ransacked his home. He was later taken to Ningjin County, where he died as a result of abuse that same evening.
Mr. Li Zhiqin, 51, was a Falun Gong practitioner from Xiaozao Village, Ningjin County, Xingtai City, Hebei Province. Someone locally reported him in May 2006 for explaining the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong. Ningjin County Police Department and 610 Office officials then harassed him, so he decided to become homeless to avoid further persecution. He and his family fled to Zhao County, Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province, where he got a job. His entire family lived in a rented house in Zhao County.
Within three hours after Mr. Li Zhiqin's arrest he was dead. (An investigation into the details is needed.) It was reported that Ningjin County 610 Office officials threatened his family and only paid a little money as compensation for his death.
Ningjin County 610 Office head Shen Jianzhong is the person mainly responsible for torturing Mr. Li to death. He arranges and carries out all the persecution of practitioners in Ningjin County.
That same evening, Ningjin County 610 Office officials also arrested another 36-year-old practitioner, Mr. Zhang Weibo, from Shuangjing Village.
