Case Description:

Wang Baoxian was a cadre at the Qiqihar City Railway Vehicle Factory in Heilongjiang Province. Having benefited tremendously from the practice of Dafa, he always said good things about Dafa, even after the persecution started. Because he was determined in practicing Dafa, he was illegally sentenced to 3 years in a labor camp. While he was detained in the Nianzishan Railway Labor Camp, he was subjected to various inhumane tortures.

Later Wang Baoxian was transferred to the 4th brigade of the Fuyu Labor Camp where he kept firmly cultivating Dafa. He never gave in no matter how the captain, Jia Weijun, coerced him to give up his belief in Dafa. In March 2000, a fellow practitioner was tortured and Wang Baoxian tried to stop the torture. As a result, he was brutally beaten and his term was extended for half a year. In June 2000, he, along with some practitioners (including Zhang Xiaochun, who was later tortured to death), went on a hunger strike to request unconditional release. However, they were cursed and beaten by the police. Later they were sent to the Fuyu Detention Center, where they again were often cursed and beaten by the police. However, they still firmly believed in Dafa. The police tried to instigate the prisoners who lived in the same cell as Wang Baoxian to beat him, and said, "It's fine so long as he's not beaten to death. I'll bear the responsibility should anything happen to him." But the prisoners did not listen to the police. So the police transferred Wang Baoxian to a different cell. The cell head Gao Delin followed the police, and asked the prisoners to beat Wang Baoxian. When Wang Baoxian reported to the police, the police beat him viciously until his nose bled profusely. Gao Delin did not allow Wang Baoxian to drink any water, nor did he allow him to relieve himself. Otherwise, he would be beaten. As a result, Wang Baoxian died in mid-August of 2002.
