Case Description:

Fifty-three year old Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Huang Lizhi was from Mawusi Village, Shilipu Town, Gangu County, Tianshui City, Gansu Province.

In 2001 a villager reported Mr. Huang to the Public Security Bureau simply because he had gone to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. The local police in his home town then abducted him.

Mr. Huang was interrogated, during which time the police tried to force him to abandon cultivation practice of Falun Gong. He firmly refused their request, so the police cruelly beat him. Mr. Huang was tortured so badly that he almost died.

The police were afraid that if he died while in their custody, they would have to take responsibility for his death. So, they took him home in a police car. Two days later, Mr. Huang died at his home of the serious injuries caused by the police torture.
