Case Description:

Ms. Ding Yan, female, 32 years old, from Shijiazhuang City, was illegally arrested for her participation in the Guangzhou City Falun Dafa Conference in 1999. She was later illegally sentenced to 4 years in prison. She was held in a whole string of prisons: the Women's Section of the Shijiazhuang City Second Prison, the Women's Section of the Baoding City Taihang Prison, and the Women's Team of the Chengde City Prison 5th Section in Hebei Province respectively.

In Chengde City Prison, malicious prison guards created a water compartment (cell) within the prison and used all sorts of devious ways to torture practitioners. Ms. Ding Yan was the one who was tortured to death a few months after she was transferred to this prison.
