In order ensure a "Safe Olympics," the police have escalated the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in Zhucheng City, Shandong Province. Each community is being forced to closely watch all detained practitioners as well as those who are serving terms in forced labor camps. Local officials must make daily reports about each practitioner that is still under surveillance and any practitioners that they have lost track of. Beginning on July 9, 2008, officers in Zhucheng City have continually harassed practitioners. Several dozen have been arrested so far.
On July 10, 2008, Developing Zone Police Station Chief Ding Bofeng (male) illegally entered Ms. Liu Xiumei's home located in Guanzhuandian Village, Shunwang Community, Zhucheng City. The police ransacked her home, placed her under arrest, and detained her in the Zhucheng City Detention Center.
Ms. Liu's family went to the Zhucheng City Police Department to inquire about her situation. The family was told that she was fine and would released in a few days. But on July 27, 2008, her husband received notification that she had died in the detention center. Her body is being stored in the Zhucheng City Funeral Home. Details of her death have not been investigated.
