Case Description:

On July 1, 2007, Public Security agent Gong Chuanxing of Aohan Prefecture and several others set out to follow Falun Dafa practitioners. They ransacked Ms. Tang Haihua's home and lied to her son so that they could take their Falun Dafa materials. On July 6, 2007, they arrested Ms. Tang and other practitioners, detained them in the Aohan Prefecture Detention Center, and did not allow their families to visit.

At the beginning of January 2008, Ms. Tang and three other practitioners were each sentenced to three years in prison. They were taken to the Hohhot City Women's Prison in March 2008. There is no information on when or why Ms. Tang was taken back to the detention center or if she was ever accepted by the prison.

At 8:00 p.m. on October 9, 2009, her family received a notice saying that she was dying. They rushed to the Aohan Prefecture Detention Center. Upon entering the women's cell, they saw Ms. Tang's body, which was frozen hard in the freezer.
