Mr. Zhang Lianjiang, 56 years old, was a resident of the Dongtiange Village in Taishitun Town, Miyun County, Beijing. Because he persisted in practicing Falun Gong, he was sent to a forced labor camp for one year, between 2000 and 2001. In March 2002, he was again sent to forced labor camp. In the forced labor camp, he was tortured until he was in critical condition. In July 2003 he was released early and passed away that same year.
