Case Description:

Ms. Liu Jie, 37, was an employee of the Shuangcheng City Beer Factory in Heilongjiang Province. On February 6, 2003, while distributing a New Year greeting card with the characters "Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance" on it to a passenger in their own mini-van, she and her husband were reported to the police, who then took away the couple and their van.

Ms. Liu was detained at the Second Detention Center. Her husband does not practice Falun Gong, so he was released after being illegally detained for one day in the police department, and being illegally fined 1,000 Yuan.

On February 17, 2003, the police informed Ms. Liu's family of her death. However, her family members suspected that she might have been tortured to death days before February 17.
