Mr. Zuo Guoqing was 37 years old. He was born in Shaodong County, Hunan Province. He was the party secretary of Normal Pressure Workshop in the First Petroleum Refinery Factory, Daqing Petroleum Refinery Incorporated. He was sent to forced labor camp twice for not giving up his belief in "Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance" the fundamental teachings of Falun Dafa and for being a kind person. During the second detention in Daqing Labor Camp, he was tortured by forcibly being fed with food and highly concentrated salt water, even though he was not on hunger strike. He was also tormented by the rope tying torture*. The torture brought on pleurisy, tuberculosis and pneumonia. He was released under the guise of "medical treatment." However, in May 2003, he was again sent to Suihua City Labor Camp for continuous detention, which led to the inflammation of his entire body and a life-threatening illness. He died in October in his hometown in Hunan Province.
