Zhao Guoji - 赵国吉
During the time Mr. Zhao was being interrogated, doctors at the Bazhong City People's Hospital diagnosed him with a bone tumor and hypertension. He should have been released for hospitalization, but the Bazhou District Court still sentenced him to five years in prison. They told his family to apply for medical parole, but delayed submitting his file since March, even ordering his family to pay the physical examination fee of 10,000 yuan. They said Mr. Zhao was sick at home before being detained in March 2007.
As a result of the illegal detention and brutal mistreatment, Mr. Zhao Guoji could no longer walk, was emaciated, and could not take care of himself. In order to shirk responsibility, prison administration officials took him home on March 20, 2008. He died on October 18, 2008.
