Dafa practitioner Mr. Zhang Wannian, 63, was from Xitai Village, Xiyang Township, Wafangdian City, Liaoning Province.

While being detained at the Dalian City Forced Labor Camp, Mr. Zhang was beaten so badly that he couldn't get to sleep at night. He also coughed all day long and vomited blood very often. Once he vomited about 200 ml blood. Seeing that Mr. Zhang was on the verge of death, the labor camp released him on medical parole in order to escape responsibility. After returning home, Mr. Zhang never recovered. He passed away on January 10, 2003.
