Case Description:

Wang Zhande, 65 years old, was a veteran who worked for Chongqing City Nanan Electricity Power Bureau.

He started practicing Falun Dafa prior to 1996. In the summer of 2000, he went to Beijing to validate Dafa. As a result, he was arrested and imprisoned in Chongqing City Nanan District Detention Center for a long period. In July of 2000, he was sent to the Xishanping Labor Camp Strictly Monitored Group. On August 10, the Strictly Monitored Group dissolved, and he was sent to another division for further persecution.

The guards  forced Mr. Wang to stand in "army corps" posture, and beat him with police batons. Later the police transferred him to other divisions to continue abusing him. Under the police's instigation, common prisoners tortured Mr. Wang viciously. Mr. Wang died from the internal injuries he received during these beatings in February 2002.
