Case Description:

It has only recently been revealed that a 60-year-old woman from Shaanxi Province died in the Shaanxi Female Labor Reeducation Camp on February 10th last year at around the time of Chinese New Year.

The 60-year-old woman named Huiqin Yan was a Falun Gong practitioner. She had gone to Beijing to appeal in December 1999 when the authority banned the Falun Gong practice. She was arrested and sent back to her home province to the Shaanxi Female Labor Reeducation Camp. Less than one month later, it was heard in the local area that she had died. The labor reeducation camp claimed that she had died of illness, but sources disclosed that she was beaten to death by criminals under the order of labor camp officials.
