Mr. Chen Shouku, 66 years old, lived at home in the No. 2 team of Mingxing Village, Huantong Township, Tonghua City, Jilin Province. In October 1999, Mr. Chen was arrested by Mingxing Village and the Huantong local police station because he chose not to give up cultivation in Falun Dafa. He was sent to Changliu Detention Center in Tonghua City for half a month. On February 24, 2000, local CCP party members tried to force him to write a "transformation" statement and a guarantee statement that he would not go to Beijing. Mr. Chen didn't cooperate and was taken away by Zhang Jingkui and the other three people from the local police station. He was again detained at the Changliu Detention Center. Due to the persecution at the detention center, his heart disease recurred, and his leg was broken during a beating. He was released on bail for medical treatment after a month. Mr. Chen died on November 24, 2006.
