Case Description:
Mr. Zhang Wenya was in his forties and a clerk from the Xinlicheng Savings Bank in Nanguan District, Changchun City. After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, Mr. Zhang went to Beijing to clarify the facts about Falun Gong to the authorities. As a result, he was arrested and taken back to Changchun City. He was imprisoned at the Daguang Detention Center for fifteen days. He was arrested again in 2001 when he was promoting Falun Gong in Xian City.  He was tortured to death by the police in Xi'an City, Shaanxi Province, on April 22, 2001.
