Most recent place of detention: Nanhu Forced Labor Camp
Mr .Ding Guohua, in his 60s, is retired and lives in Mengcheng County, Anhui Province. On May 26, 2008, the Mengcheng County 610 Office, police, and community administration arrested him and imprisoned him in a detention center. In August 2008, he was taken to Nanhu Forced Labor Camp in Xuancheng City. In less than six months, he went from being healthy to being bedridden due to the brutal mistreatment.
Nanhu Forced Labor Camp is where Falun Dafa practitioners in Anhui Province are severely persecuted. Practitioners detained there have to endure hard labor for 16 hours per day, from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., and the food is cold even in the wintertime. Due to the extra-heavy hard labor and severe living conditions, Mr. Ding soon became very sick, but the guards still forced him work until he was bedridden.
Mr. Ding's family heard that he was very sick and went to visit him, but the camp administration refused to let them see each other. One week later after his family came, the guards saw that Mr Ding was dying, and allowed his family to pick him up. Soon after he returned home, he died on January 13, 2009.
