Ms. Cong Guixian, a Falun Gong practitioner from Songyuan City, Jilin Province, was brutally tortured by the Chinese Communist Party agents. She was illegally sentenced to a ten-year prison term, and was detained in Changchun Heizuizi Women's Prison. She developed very severe illness symptoms during detention, and had to be released on medical parole. Cong Guixian's illness worsened and she died on March 28, 2006.
