129 Deaths Confirmed Since January 2007 (Graphic Photos)
-- Brief Summaries of Each Death Case Present Grim Evidence of Stepped Up Persecution of Falun Gong as Chinese Communists "Prepare" for the Olympics (Graphic Photos)
Compiled from previously published Minghui/Clearwisdom reports
The following is a list of the 129 Falun Gong practitioners confirmed to have died between January 1, 2007 and March 20, 2008 as a direct result of persecution they suffered at the hands of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) authorities. Each of the 129 cases is briefly outlined below.
As further evidence of the intensified persecution Falun Gong faces in the run-up to the Beijing Olympics, 1,878 practitioners were reported arrested in the first ten weeks of 2008 alone. Read More on FalunInfo.net
Please note: While the total confirmed number of deaths stands in the low 3,000's, the actual number is thought to be many, many times higher. The CCP keeps tight-fisted control of such information, and our sources in China risk imprisonment and torture for compiling and submitting these death cases to the Minghui/Clearwisdom website.
Note: In each case below, the first number signifies its count in the death toll since January 2007. The second number (in parentheses) is a reference to the list of all confirmed deaths since the persecution began in 1999. The English translation of this list is maintained on a webpage at http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/special_column/death_cases/death_list.html#death. For example, the first case is the 129th since January 2007, and the 3149th case confirmed since the persecution began in 1999

Name: Xu Huibi
Location: Died after being tortured and overworked in a Chongqing City Prison
Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Xu Huibi, 63, was a retired senior teacher from the Southwest Aluminum Limited Corp. Elementary School. On September 1, 2003, Jiulongpo District Domestic Security agent Chen Gang (male), and other officers from the Xipeng Town Police Station, and the District Police Department arrested Ms. Xu at her home and took her to be interrogated at the Town Police Station. Because she did not give them any information or renounce Dafa, they detained her in the Huayan District Detention Center. Ms. Xu persisted in doing the Falun Dafa exercises while being held in the Detention Center, and was tortured with brutal force-feeding because of it. The torture caused severe damage to her mental and physical health, yet the police still sentenced her to four years in prison and took her to the Chongqing City Yongchuan Women's Prison.
In the prison, Xu Huibi was assigned to forced labor in the plant that has toxic gases. It was difficult to breathe, and she was forced to finish a certain amount of work each day. Ms. Xu was brutally tortured until she was very weak, and her feet were in extreme pain, causing her to be unable to walk. Even under these conditions, the prison doctor still refused to let her rest, saying that she was fine for labor. Two other prisoners dragged her by her arms to the plant every day. She became emaciated, she could not walk or eat, and had difficulty breathing. The poisonous gases caused severe lung dysfunction, and also damaged other organs. On August 31, 2007, the prison administration finally ordered her family to come and pick her up. By this time, Ms. Xu could not take care of herself and there was no hope of recovery.

Name: Gu Jianmin
Location: Tortured to death 13 days after arrested in Yangjing Police Station in Pudong New District, Shanghai
Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Gu Jianmin, 53, lived in the 13th Building-Apt. 601, 400 Lane, Yangguangxincun Neighborhood, Qishan Street, Pudong New District. She was sent to a forced labor camp for one year in June 2006 for clarifying the truth. On March 1, 2008, she was again arrested by officers from the Yangjing Police Station in Pudong New District, and they tortured her until she died on March 13, 2008.
On March 13, 2008, an agent of the Pudong New District 610 Office called Ms. Gu's husband, saying that she was not well, and that he should come and process a medical parole. They even asked which hospital he wished to take her to, then they deceived her husband into going to the Pudong New District Police Department, and the Neighborhood Administration, to do the medical parole paper work. This process dragged on until 3 p.m. Some unknown person had him sign an arrest warrant during this time period. Upon arriving at the hospital, they first forced him to again sign an arrest warrant. When he found Ms. Gu in the Gastric lavage room, her eyes were protruding, pupils enlarged, and she was bleeding from the mouth, but no one was taking care of her. Her husband knelt down in front of the doctors and begged them to save his wife. The doctor conducted a rather quick attempt at a rescue, then he declared that she was dead. In such a short time of only thirteen days, a perfectly healthy person was tortured to death.
There were more than thirty "610 Office" agents present, and some of them were plainclothes officers. The hospital's security guards were waiting in the hospital room, and took Ms. Gu's body to the morgue while some of the others surrounded her husband to restrain him. Ms. Gu's husband was very angry. He loudly declared that he will find out who the killers were. All of the agents quickly fled, and only some of the plainclothes police officers were hiding in the crowd. Ms. Gu's husband could not find any of the agents. The doctor told him that Ms. Gu was dying when she arrived at the hospital. The hospital issued a dying certificate (which Chinese doctors issue to notify family about patients that are terminal), which should be signed by the immediate family, but was signed by an unknown person.
Pudong District 610 Office, and Pudong New District Detention Center are responsible for Ms. Gu's death. The crime was witnessed by doctors, nurses, patients, and their families. They took the dying Ms. Gu to the hospital, then cheated her husband by tricking him to agree to a medical parole in an attempt to clear themselves of the responsibility for her death.

On the morning of March 6, 2008, symptoms of Mr. Sun Guanzhou's old diseases suddenly reappeared, and the police notified his wife. She and they took him to Beiguan Hospital. The doctor said that he had asthma and high blood pressure, and his condition was not suitable for remaining in detention. His wife demanded that he be admitted to the hospital, but the secret agents would not allow it. His family then asked agent Geng Songtao to release Mr. Sun. Geng Songtao demanded 25 thousand yuan. Mr. Sun's wife could only come up with five thousand yuan, which Geng refused, saying it was not enough to get Mr. Sun released and that "I don't make the decision."
At around 8 p.m. on March 9, 2008, Mr. Sun's wife received a phone call to return to the hospital. When she arrived, she saw Mr. Sun's cold body. She was distraught! Agents tried to keep her from the body and tried to force her to sign the papers to have his body cremated. She cried out, "I want him alive!" Then she fainted. All the agents quickly escaped, leaving her in the morgue. On the afternoon of March 10, 2008, Mr. Sun's wife went to the hospital again to see his body, but the agents refused to allow her to see her dead husband.

She went on a hunger strike to protest , only to be tortured by being force-fed while tied on the floor with her four limbs stretched apart. She almost died from this torture. She was later taken to Jiamusi City Labor Camp to serve out her three-year term. Four times her hands were cuffed behind her back onto a metal bed frame. Five times she was tortured with the "Big Back Cuff," an excruciating torture. She was also subjected to many other tortures, including being forced to sit on a wire spool (a very rough surface), not allowed to use the toilet, subjected to long-term sleep deprivation, forced to do hard labor, and subjected to freezing temperatures. The guards intentionally opened the window at night to make it even colder. When the guards saw that this brutal treatment still could not force Ms. Zou to accept their brainwashing, they decided to torture her with the "Big Back Cuff" for an entire afternoon. Ms. Zou's arms lost all feeling and swelled up as thick as loaves of bread. Her feet had frostbite and she began coughing. Ms. Zou passed out due to the extreme pain. Liu put her down on the cement floor, then had the camp doctor look at her. The camp doctor said there was no danger that she could die. Liu then put her back in the "Big Back Cuff" position for another entire afternoon. He swung the handcuffs to aggravate the pain. They assigned a collaborator to continue trying to brainwash Ms. Zou. They tortured her the next day again with the "Big Back Cuff" and used electric batons to shock her. After this torture session, Ms. Zou was unable to take care of herself for a long time.
In March 2003, Ms. Zou refused to write the "Four Statements." She was again tortured with the "Big Back Cuff," by guards Li Xiujin (female) and Li Yongbo (male). In the summer of 2003, Ms. Zou again refused to comply with the authorities' evil demands, so guards Liu Yadong and Li Xiujin forced her to sit on the wire spool again, with both hands on her knees. They didn't allow her to move one bit. If she did move, they punched and kicked her. Ms. Zou was forced to sit this way from 6:00 a.m to 8:00 p.m. for several days. Her buttocks bled, and her legs and feet swelled. Ms. Zou was as thin as a skeleton. She could not sleep well and had difficulty breathing. She was still forced to do hard labor in this condition. The production materials that detainees had to work with contained toxic ingredients with a very strong odor. This caused Ms. Zou's health, already compromised, to deteriorate further.
Ms. Zou was in extremely poor health when she was finally released. Her family circumstances were very difficult life as a result of the persecution. Ms. Zou lost her job, and her husband was forced into early retirement. Their child needed to go to school and her parents were forced to leave home to avoid being arrested.

After Zhang Minghua met with the Political Security Office and the detention center, they claimed that Mr. Chen had died of a sudden heart
Mr. Chen Baofeng
Mr. Chen's family pointed out that he never had heart problems before and that he was a very healthy man. How could he have died only eight days after being arrested if it was not the result of police brutality? If he died of sickness, why didn't they notify his family when he was ill? Why have they refused to allow the family to see his body?

On July 10, 2004, the Reform Office Chair Jiang Haitao and officer Liu (given name unknown) spoke with Mr. Yi and tried to force him give up practicing Falun Gong. Mr. Yi absolutely refused. They saw that he refused to accept the brainwashing, so they had prisoners put 35-pound ankle shackles on Mr. Yi and forced him to stand under the burning sun. Guard Yu Hongtao directed prisoners Zhang Liantao and Wang Wenzhong to force Mr. Yi to walk rapidly with the shackles. If Mr. Yi did not walk fast enough, Zhang Liantao would kick him very hard. Mr. Yi was out of breath, and his ankles were bleeding. These evildoers also tortured him with the "big hang up," which caused his arms to lose sensation.
The Tailai Prison guards created a new way to torture prisoners. They forced Mr. Yi sit on the floor, cuffed his four limbs stretched apart onto a metal structure under the baking sun, and did not allow him to drink water. After a while, they released his feet and put three bricks under each foot, elevating his legs over his head for a long while. When the guards saw he could not take it any more, they left him cuffed by his hands to a bar. The guards tried to force Mr. Yi write the "guarantee letter", but he refused. Guard Yu Hongtao then hit his head with a rubber baton. Prisoner Qu Hongyu and Yu Hongtao twisted Mr. Yi's arms behind his back. Another guard Li Yongzhe punched Mr. Yi's face, causing his nose and mouth to bleed.
Due to long-term brutal mistreatment, Mr. Yi suffered muscle atrophy in his left hand, and his health condition deteriorated. He could not take care of himself, and he was paralyzed and bedridden. He had to wait until other prisoners finished eating so they could bring him some water and food. He was starving. His family requested Mr. Yi's release on bail for medical treatment, but the prison administration did not grant the request for a long time. Not until Mr. Yi was in critical condition did the prison agree to let him be picked up by his family on August 8, 2007. He suffered six more months in pain, and died on February 13, 2008 at age 45.

After Ms. Xue returned home, it did not take long for her to recover. In 2002, she went again to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong and was arrested and taken back to the Tianjin Banqiao Female Forced Labor Camp. The labor camp refused to take her. The local authorities and police brought her back and pressured her husband. They were afraid that she would go again to Beijing. They goaded her husband into breaking her legs. Her husband tied her up and beat her legs hard until they were all bloody and smashed. Her children sent her to the hospital and doctors said that the treatment would cost at least 30,000 yuan, and even then she might not recover. Ms. Xue did not wish to be treated. She returned home and cultivated in Falun Dafa. Her legs healed within six months and only a scar could be seen. During this time, staff from the Tianjin Banqiao Female Forced Labor Camp harassed Ms. Xue at her home many times. Ms. Xue did not cooperate. They thus, took her back to the forced labor camp.

Then he went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong in April 2000. He was arrested and held, then sent to a brainwashing center twice. The police arrested Mr. Zhang in March 2004 and held him at the Detention Center of Yanbian County.

The agents handcuffed him to the frame of the window for three whole days. Hanging there, he could touch the ground only with his toes. Agents kicked and punched Mr. Zhang. They slapped his face and hit him in the face with a full bottle of water; they also stuck the water bottle into his mouth. They beat his face till it was black and blue and his mouth bled. They tortured him until he was unconscious many times. Sometimes it rained at night, and the rain drenched him totally. Chilly winds almost froze him, and he shivered the whole night. The agents took turns torturing him, interrogating him, and attempting to coerce a confession. When Mr. Zhang lost consciousness, the agents pulled his hand up and imprinted his fingerprints on the interrogation record. When the guards released him from the window frame, Mr. Zhang could not stand and his wrists were cut and covered with blood. He couldn't walk after they sent him back to the detention center; he was only able to crawl in the cell. They never sent him to the hospital for medical treatment. The 610 Office authorities still didn't feel that they had enough evidence for their report, so they had the inmates torture and interrogate Mr. Zhang for a confession. After the police authorities fabricated the evidence, the Yanbian County Court brought Mr. Zhang to trial in October 2004. He was carried to the court by prisoners. The court sentenced him to seven and a half years.

Location: Tailai Prison, Heilongjiang Province
Practitioner Mr. Liu Jingming from Heilongjiang Province worked at Qiqihar City Chinese Medicine Hospital, Heilongjiang Province. During the CCP's extremely brutal persecution against Falun Gong, Mr. Liu Jingming had been illegally imprisoned, sent to forced labor camp and tortured. On February 8, 2007, he was detained at Tailai Prison. It took wardens at Tailai Prison only 46 days to torture thirty nine year-old Mr. Liu to death. At 7 p.m. on March 24, 2007, Warden Ji Hengtai of the Training Unit at Tailai Prison phoned Liu Jingming's home. He claimed that Mr. Liu died after "jumping out of the window of the building" at 1:40 a.m. on March 24.
At 11 a.m. on March 25, some of Liu's family members went to Tailai Prison. Guard Ji Hengtai claimed that Mr. Liu Jingming was held in the training cell on the 3rd floor. At 1:15 am on March 24, Mr. Liu Jingming asked to go to the toilet. Two prisoners were on duty and one was smoking outside the cell. The prisoner alleged that he heard the sound of the iron window opening. He went inside to grab Mr. Liu Jingming's right hand. Mr. Liu Jingming escaped and jumped out of the window through the open iron bars. Five minutes later, they carried Liu Jingming to the prison hospital. Mr. Liu Jingming died at 1:40 am on March 24, 2007. His family deeply grieved, asked indignantly, "Since Mr. Liu Jingming died at 1:40 a.m., why did the prison staff not notify the family until 7 p.m.? What did you do for those 18 hours? Can iron bars be so easily broken loose at the prison? Besides, Mr. Liu Jingming endured great suffering from forced-transformation, was tortured daily and was emaciated. Where did he get the strength to break open the iron bars? Mr. Liu Jingming's knees were purple and black. There was blood and other marks on his knees. This was certainly caused by long term kneeling." The prison could not answer.
Before the persecution
Liu Jingming's body frozen at the Tailai Prison Hospital
When the family saw Mr. Liu Jingming's body, they were shocked. The body was horribly mangled. The right side of the head was caved in. The face and entire body was horribly damaged. The woolen sweater and pants he wore were soaked with blood, but his underwear and underpants did not show any bloodstains. Mr. Liu Jingming's elder sister said that this was not his underwear. The left leg showed signs of possible torture. The right leg had a hole, which was approximately 5 to 6 centimeters in diameter. The right leg was twisted and both knees were purple and black and showed coagulated blood.
According to an anonymous source, Mr. Liu Jingming and other Falun Gong practitioners were taken to the Tailai Prison on February 8, 2007. They were first put in the Training Center to undergo forced "transformation" through torture. On March 22, 2007, "Touring Speakers" went to Tailai Prison to slander Dafa, Mr. Liu Jingming, Mr. Ren Yingqun and other two Falun Gong practitioners stood up to expose the lies. They were brutally tortured afterwards. Wardens and criminal inmate Zhou Lixin beat him to death. Because his body had many injury marks, they could not claim him as "sudden death of heart failure" to deceive his family, so the prison fabricated the "jumping out of window." The prison put Zhou Lixin into a confined compartment so that the truth would not be revealed.

On July 22, 1999, several policemen roughly forced Mr. Zhao into a police vehicle when he was practicing the Falun Gong exercises in front of Chifeng City Museum. They drove him and other practitioners to a mountain in a far-away Chifeng suburban area. Then they pushed him and the other practitioners out of the vehicle and left. The practitioners had to walk a long way home. On July 23, 1999, police chief Liu Qi from the Xitun local police station in the Hongshan District arrested Mr. Zhao at his home and took him to the police station. The police forced Mr. Zhao, in his seventies, to stay under the steaming hot sun until he fell over from heat exhaustion. One sympathetic policeman finally let him go home. In October 1999, Zhao Dianbin went to Beijing to appeal. The Beijing police arrested him and detained him in Huairou County (a Beijing suburb). Later they took Mr. Zhao to the Chifeng City Liaison Office in Beijing. Then he was taken back to Chifeng.

Policeman Yang Liping and another officers tortured Mr. Zhao Dianbin. They used electric shocks and brutal beatings. In addition, they handcuffed him and then tightened the cuffs until he passed out. They then fabricated an oral confession and pressed his fingerprint on the paper while he was unconscious. After that, they used this falsified oral confession to implicate Mr. Zhao's daughter, Ms. Zhao Shuzhen, who worked in Beijing.
