Mr. Li Qingzhou, 55 years old, was a practitioner from Hua County in Shannxi Province. He went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong in March 2000. He was arrested and forcibly returned to Shannxi Province, where he was sentenced to a one-year term in a forced labor camp.
After he was released from the labor camp, he suffered a lot of brutal persecution by the local police. In July 2002, he was violently removed from his child's home and taken to Tieyiju Detention Center. He was then sentenced to a two-year term in a forced labor camp. When he was sent to the labor camp, he was found to have high blood pressure during a health checkup. As a result, the labor camp refused to accept him.
He asked to be released on bail so that he could obtain medical treatment, but his application for release was declined by detention center authorities.
Around midnight November 29, 2002, he suddenly died in the detention center.
