(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Xie Wenping of Dingxing County has died as a result of police brutality.
Mr. Xie was an employee of Dingxing County Glass Tube Factory in the Baoding Area, Hebei province, and he lived in the County Livestock Bureau. In 2002, the police abducted Mr. Xie from his home and sent him to the Liyuzhuang Township Brainwashing Center, where he was inhumanly tortured. His family was not informed until his life was in danger. Mr. Xie died soon after returning home.
