The Falun Dafa Information Center reported on June 18 that a 26-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner Zhu Zhiyong from Liuan City, Anhui Province, was verified to have been killed on September 18, 2003 at the Valve Factory, affiliated with Brigade One of Baihu Labor Camp in Liujiang County, Anhui Province. The camp police said that he died because he refused to give up his belief in Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance. The details of his death are being investigated.

Yesterday a policeman from the Interrogation Section of the valve factory verified the death of Zhu Zhiyong.

He said, "Zhu Zhiyong was arrested and detained because he practiced Falun Gong. The camp had once carried out brainwashing on him. Because he resumed the practice of Dafa after he was released, he was arrested again and sentenced to 4 years of forced labor education."

He also said, "After three years of labor education, he still refused to give in." He was very hesitant to disclose the cause of Zhu Zhiyong's death. He claimed that it was an "accident."

It has been reported that five brigades have been established in Baihu Labor Camp, Lujiang County, Anhui Province. When we called the valve factory and asked about the cause of Zhu Zhiyong's death, everyone who answered the phone would immediately hang up.
