Case Description:

Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Shao Mingzhu lived in Beibo Village in Liangcheng Township, Weishan County, Jining City, Shandong Province. He was sent to one year of forced labor in 2002 because he passed out truth clarifying materials. He was sent to the Shandong Province First Men's Labor Camp located in Wangcun, Zibo City. In 2004, he was sentenced to another two years of forced labor and a one month extension. During this term, he was so brutally tortured that he became very emaciated, and he could not take care of his daily needs. Finally, his lungs became severely infected, and his family picked him up in mid March 2006.

His family sent him to the Jining City People's Hospital for emergency treatment, and he survived two more months with oxygen and intravenous injections. His daily medical expenses were between five and nine hundred yuan. He died on May 30, 2006.
