Most recent place of detention:
Mr. Sun Baocai, who is in his 60s, was a resident of Group 15 of the Eighth Committee in Fuzhen Street, Liaoyuan City, Jilin Province. He used to be an employee in the Liaoyuan General Machinery Factory. He started Falun Gong practice in 1998. After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, personnel from the Fuzhen Police Station frequently harassed him. They ransacked his house without a search permit and confiscated Falun Gong books and tapes.
In August 1999, he went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong, and as a result was illegally detained for two weeks. He was in exile from November 2001 to June 2003 to avoid being persecuted. During this time, Mr. Sun Baocai's two daughters-in-law were illegally given heavy jail sentences and sent for forced labor. This was a heavy blow to Sun Baocai. He became bedridden for many days. Upon his return home from living outside, the lawless officials from Fuzhen Police Station went to harass and threaten him like they had in the past. This caused his illness to aggravate and he died on November 3, 2003.
