Ms. Wang Yaqing was a 46-year-old hairdresser who lived in Jizhuang Village, Miyun Town, Miyun County, Beijing. At about 1:20 p.m. on August 15, 2006, eight policemen from the Binhe Police Station and from the National Security Team in Miyun County went to her hair salon. They arrested her and sentenced her to two years in a forced labor camp. According to what Wang Yaqing said before her death, she was first held in a detention center and later in the Dispatch Section for one night. Then she was sent to the hospital within the forced labor camp. The doctor drew one syringe of fluid from her lower back and injected some unknown drugs.
