Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Tan Xueli lived in the Sixth Group, Eleventh Section, Zhonghe Commune, Qunli town, Pengxi County, Suining City, Sichuan Province. He used to spend all his money on doctors, but was never cured. After practicing Falun Dafa, however, his illnesses went away.
In May 2000 (a busy season to harvest and plant rice), he was arrested by local CCP officials, leaving his grain in the field. His kind-hearted friends helped him harvest the rice, but officials extorted one thousand yuan each from them because Mr. Tan practiced Falun Gong.
On the evening of July 24, 2005, Mr. Tan Xueli was again arrested. He was sentenced to prison, and sent to Yongchuan Prison in Chongqing City on June 13, 2006. He was tortured to death on June 19, 2006, only six days after being admitted to the prison.
