Case Description:
Ms. Zhang Yiqin was from Beihan Village, Laiyuan County, Hebei Province. She was twice illegally sentenced to a forced labor camp by the Public Security Bureau and the "610 Office" (an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems) in Laiyuan County. She was detained for a total of over two years. While she was in the Baoding Labor Camp, she began a hunger strike to protest the illegal persecution. The labor camp force-fed her with something harmful that caused her to vomit blood and become critically ill. To avoid responsibility, the labor camp let her family take her home, but Zhang Yiqin died a few days later on September 11, 2002.
