Case Description:
Ms. Zhang Zhengrong, 58, retired early. On the morning of March 1, 2007, more than a dozen police officers from the Guilin Street Station and Domestic Security agents arrested the four family members. The police said viciously, "We will force your son to go through a divorce, stop your daughter's wedding, and break up your family!" Ms. Zhang and her husband were both sentenced to one year of forced labor. Her husband was taken to the Chaoyanggou Labor Camp. Ms. Zhang Zhengrong was taken to the Heizuizi Labor Camp. Ms. Zhang became very ill due to the brutal treatment she received at the camp, so she had to be placed on medical probation. However, the local police constantly harassed her at home, which created constant unrest and stress in her life. She died on May 28, 2007.
