Mr. Wang Chongjun, 65, lived in Longzhuashu Village, Xiaohongmen Township, Chaoyang District, Beijing. The village 610 Office chair, Yang Fengling (female), was unsuccessful in forcing practitioner Ms. Wang Fengqin, who is Mr. Wang Chongjun's wife, to write a guarantee statement to stop practicing Falun Gong. She arranged for more than 40 unemployed people to monitor the family beginning on April 7, 2008. She harassed them everyday by coming to their house, and followed all the family members everywhere, including when they went shopping or took a walk to the park. At around 7:00 p.m. on April 14, 2008, 610 Office agents stormed into Mr. Wang's home; arrested him and his wife, Ms. Wang Zhiqin; and detained them in the Chaoyang District Detention Center. No visits were permitted.
On June 20, 2008, Mr. Wang's family received notices sent from the First and Tenth Wards of the Prisoner Dispatch Section of Beijing Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp, saying Mr. Wang Chongjun had been sentenced to two years of forced labor on May 22, 2008, and was detained in the First Ward of the Prisoner Dispatch Section. Ms. Wang Zhiqin was sentenced to two and half years of forced labor on May 20, 2008, and is now being held in the Tenth Ward.
Guards in the camp injected Mr. Wang with an unknown drug that caused him to become emaciated. The camp authorities saw that he was dying and quickly released him. He skin had turned yellow from the drug.
His family picked him up and took him to the hospital for an operation. Mr. Wang died on the afternoon of August 23, 2008. His wife was transferred to the Shanxi Province Forced Labor Camp right before the Olympics. She still does not know of her husband's death.
