Dafa practitioner Mr. Ma Baosheng in Zhaozhou County, Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province went to Beijing to appeal on behalf of Dafa in 2000. He was illegally held at the Zhaozhou County Detention Center and the Daqing Forced Labor Camp, where he was terribly abused, both physically and mentally. One of the tortures he underwent was "Tying the Rope,"(1) which disabled his arms. The police constantly harassed him at home after he was released. He passed away on January 4, 2005.
