Practitioner Mr. Chen Hanbo, 57, was the volunteer assistant at the Puning Falun Gong practice site in Guangdong Province. After July 20, 1999, when the persecution began, the police have often been to his house, harassing him and ransacking his home. On September 30, 2002, the 610 Office in both the Jieyang and Puning areas sent him to the Puning Detention Center, where he was detained and tortured for nearly one hundred days. He was later sent to Sanshui Labor Camp, where he was tortured for one year. He was eventually bailed out, but he was still constantly threatened and harassed, causing serious damage to his mental and physical health. He passed away on October 14, 2004.
