Mr. Nie Jiheng, in his sixties, was a senior engineer at the Chongqing Chemical Plant who began practicing Falun Dafa in 1995. Because he firmly held to his belief, even after the persecution began on July 20, 1999, the Jiaodao Substation Police arrested him on May 24, 2003 in the Banan District of Chongqing. He was detained at the Banan Detention Center and died in Huaxi Hospital soon afterwards. The police fabricated a lie, saying that he had committed suicide by jumping from the building. Before dying, Mr. Nie wrote a note to his wife on a scrap of paper, "I hope the truth will be exposed on the Internet that my death was a direct result of the persecution." A fellow practitioner who was over eighty years old had carried the note from the detention center, but unfortunately, the note has since been lost.
