(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Ni Shuzhi, 60, lived in Hulan District, Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province. She began cultivating Falun Gong in 1998. In May 2002, Ms. Ni was arrested from her home and sentenced to five years in prison. She was detained in the hospital ward because of a physical condition, but she was still tortured in all sorts of ways. At the end of 2006, she had a nosebleed and asked for some cotton balls from the prison nurse. The cotton ball she was given had a very strong odor. Soon afterward, she could not talk and developed a terrible cough and diarrhea.

After she was released in May 2007, the doctors diagnosed her with cirrhosis, ascites due to cirrhosis, heart failure, pharyngitis, and inadequate blood flow to the brain and the heart. She died on January 19, 2008.
