Case Description:

Ms. Duan Shiqiong was 32 years old, an attendant at the Chongqiong Railway Bureau, and a Falun Gong practitioner.

In 2001, because of the persecution by Jiang's regime, she was forced to leave home to avoid further persecution. Later in Chengdu City, she made every effort to clarify the truth of Dafa and the facts of persecution to people. In August 2002, she was illegally detained at the Chengdu City Detention Center by the "610 Office". She went on hunger strikes to protest the persecution. On September 16, 2003, she died while being violently force-fed by police officers and criminals. There were eyewitnesses to the Ms. Duan's death as a result of the force-feeding.
