An eyewitness account on the persecution at Handan Forced Labor Camp in Hebei Province.
The forced labor camp released Mr. Ding Guohua when he was dying. Soon after he returned home, he died on January 13, 2009.
With less than 24 hours after his family's visit, the forced labor camp claimed Mr. Jiang died. But 7 hours later, his family found his body was still warm. Camp authorities gave different explanations for the cause of his death and forbade his family to examine Mr. Jiang's back.

Due to Ms. Zhang Chenglan's son does not oppose Falun Gong, the forced labor camp guards denied his requests to visit his mother.
After being tortured and forced to do slave labor for six months, Ms. Zhang Qiuyun still refused to sign a guarantee to renounce Falun Gong, so the local CCP court sentenced her five years in prison.
The city police department set arrest quotas to subordinate stations, so the local police have been arresting Falun Gong practitioners and extorting money since the beginning of 2009.
Mr. Ma Guobiao, his mother and his father were sentenced to 6, 4 and 3 years in prison, respectively, because he invited others to watch the Divine Performing Arts Chinese New Year Spectacular DVD in his home.
Clearwisdom.net and its Chinese-language sister-website (minghui.ca) provide first-hand reports about the horrors of the persecution of Falun Gong in China. Dozens of reports are received every day from the victims of torture, the wrongfully imprisoned, and families crippled by the senseless hardship and grief for their loved ones imposed by the persecution. In contrast, the websites also report positive news and events from the more than 80 countries around the world where Falun Gong is practiced, and serve as an online forum for practitioners to share stories of the good things Falun Gong has brought to their lives.
