Case Description:

Ding Lihong, male, 36, a Dafa practitioner from Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province, was a train operator for Shijiazhuang Railway and lived in the Jianming Area of Shijiazhuang.

At the beginning of November 2002, Ding Lihong was kidnapped and detained by the Shanxi police in Yuci County and detained in secret. From the start of his detention to the time when he was tortured to the brink of death, the police never gave his family members any information. Over a month later, the police asked Ding Lihong's parents to go to Shanxi to identify and retrieve his body. Immediately afterwards Mr. Ding's body was cremated, and his family was only able to take the ashes back to Shijiazhuang shortly before December 20, 2002.
