Case Description:

Ms. Liu Shujuan lived in Liqizhuang Township in Sanhe City, Hebei Province. She was detained in the Baoding City Labor Camp for one year, and died on April 25, 2007 at the age of 50.

On February 5, 2006, Ms. Liu Shujuan went to the Xianghe County Police Department with more than thirty other practitioners to request the release of the detained Falun Dafa practitioners. However, all of them were illegally arrested and detained in the Dachang County Detention Center. There they endured all kinds of torture. They were brutally beaten and some practitioners' teeth became loose and they still cannot eat. One practitioner was tied against the wall with all four limbs spread apart for an entire night. The practitioners were not allowed to wear jackets, even though it was freezing and the windows were open. They slept on the icy cold cement floor with only a thin blanket on the floor and no other bedding. Ms. Liu's two teenage daughters also suffered from the same mistreatment. Among these practitioners, Mr. Cao Yubao, age 56 from Langfang City, died on April 26, 2006.

Ms. Liu Shujuan was taken to the Gaogezhuang Detention Center in Sanhe City by police officers from the Sanhe City Police Department. She was forced to write a guarantee statement and was sentenced to forced labor. Her heart disease recurred due to being tortured, and the Kaiping Labor Camp in Tangshan City refused to accept her. The Sanhe City 610 Office then detained Ms. Liu in the local detention center, where she had several heart attacks. The 610 Office not only refused to release her, but sent her to the Baoding Labor Camp with a one-year term in April 2006.

Liu Shujuan died on April 25, 2007, shortly after she was released home after a year of forced labor.
