Mr. Su Gang, 32, was an employee of Instrument and Meter Unit of the Alkene Plant of Qi-Lu Petro-Chemical Company. He held a Bachelor degree in computer science from Shan-dong University. Just because he was a practitioner of Falun Gong, he was persecuted to death on June 10, 2000.
In this year alone, Mr. Su had been arrested three times by the security department of his workplace, and had been detained for 130 days in total. Once he was detained for more than three months.
On April 25, Mr. Su went to Beijing alone to report to higher authorities the injustice against him. As a result, he was arrested and escorted back, and detained for one month afterwards.
On May 23, Mr. Su's workplace threw him into the Chang-le Mental hospital without notifying his family members, and detained him there until May 31.
On May 31, Mr. Su Gang's uncle, Mr. Su Lian-xi, learned the news of Su Gang's detention in the Chang-le Mental Hospital. Mr. Su Lian-xi then started a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention. The head of the Qi-du Public Security Department, Ge Yun-wei, came and said that he knew nothing about that case. Ge then discussed the issue with Mr. Su's workplace, and asked his workplace to free Mr. Su from the mental hospital.
At 6pm of May 31, the security members of Mr. Su's workplace sent him back to his father, Mr. Su De-an. After nine days of brutal "treatment", which included daily over-dose injection with damaging effects on neural system, Mr. Su looked miserable. With a dull look in his eyes, he did not have any expression on his pale face. He was very slow in reacting, and his limbs looked stiff.
Although receiving good care from family members at home, Mr. Su Gang was not able to recover from the severe mental and physical damages he had suffered in the mental hospital. After a period of painful struggle, he left this world on the morning of June 10, 2000.
It was said that, at 2pm of June 10, the meter and electrical instruments of the Alkene Plant caught a big fire, which lasted for five hours.
