Case Description:
Ms. Zhang Mingyi, 34, is from Jilin City, Jilin Province. She was formerly employed as a test analysis technician by the Jilin Chemical Factory. After the factory went out of business, she moved to work at Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province. She was arrested later and suffered for more than two years in the Zhejiang Province Women's Prison. Her health deteriorated due to the long term brutal treatment in the prison. She was constantly feverish, and the prison doctor injected some unknown drug into her, causing her to become extremely weak and quickly lose weight. The prison administration didn't want to be held responsible for her death, so they released her early. After returning home, Ms. Zhang had a fever all the time, and purple marks appeared on her body. The doctor diagnosed her with hemolytic anemia, hepatitis B and C, and tests showed a shadow on her pancreas. She died on August 29, 2007.
