Case Description:

Ms. Wang Yanqin was diagnosed with cancer in 1996, after her family carried her to Changchun for medical attention. She discovered Falun Dafa while she was in Changchun and began to practice. When she returned home, she could walk and her illness disappeared.

In July 1999, the CCP began persecuting Falun Gong. On November 28, 2003, when Ms. Wang and several fellow practitioners went to a local village to hand out truth clarifying materials, they were arrested and tortured. She was tortured on a tiger bench, after which she could not eat and had chest and abdominal pain. On December 12, 2003, Jiutai City Detention Center officials took her to the Changchun Public Security Hospital.

Ms. Wang Yanqin was sentenced to four years and held in Jilin Women's Prison. She was injected against her will with an unknown drug and was often delirious; her health was also failing. After she was released, she was totally reliant on her family to take care of her. She passed away on December 5, 2010.
