(Clearwisdom.net) I was shocked to learn that Sun Qian, a Falun Dafa practitioner from Dalian City, Liaoning Province died from persecution on March 15, 2005. The following is the information that I have concerning the persecution of Sun Qian before her death.

Ms. Sun Qian, 27, was a Falun Dafa practitioner from Dalian. She was a graduate of the Police Training School of Liaoning Province. She was sentenced to two and a half years of forced labor because she went to the Central Government in Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa in October 1999. Ms. Sun was incarcerated in the Labor Reform School of Dalian City, and her student status was revoked. On March 5, 2000, she was brought to the Education Sector of the Labor Reform School of Dalian City for "re-education" (brainwashing). Under extreme psychological pressure, Sun Qian jumped from the 3rd floor and broke both legs. Several months later, she was transferred to the Labor Reform School of Fushun City, where she was persecuted continuously. Pen Geng, a Dafa practitioner and a police officer from Panjing City, was also jailed there.

In the notorious Labor Reform School of Fushun City, Sun Qian was brutally tortured, and finally forced to give up her belief in Falun Dafa. Later, she was sent back to the Labor Reform School of Dalian City. She was a witness of the "March 19 Event" in 2001, when practitioners were brutally tortured in a vicious round of persecution. After her release on May 14, 2001, Ms. Sun re-established her student status at the Police Training School of Liaoning Province. In July 2001, she graduated from the school and was offered the position of accountant at the school library, and ranked as a third-level police officer.

In April 2002, Sun Qian was again arrested and taken to the brainwashing class at the Communist Party School of Dalian City at Pulandian for saying in public that Falun Dafa is good. The persecutors hung her up with handcuffs and electrical wire and viciously beat her. They poured cold water on her and shocked her mouth with electricity. Those who tortured her included Wang Jixiao, who was the most vicious, the deputy secretary of the Political and Judicial Commission of Pulandian City; Sun Mousheng, currently retired, the original director of the 610 Office of Pulandian City; Qi Jinshuai, Political Supervisor of the Sipin Police Station of the Pulandian City Police. Those responsible for arresting Sun Qian include Xu Jiahou, originally the head of the Pikou Frontier Defense Police Station and currently the head of the Frontier Defense Brigade of the Police Department of Pulandian City; Liu Xueyi, a policeman who has since been transferred; and Yang Jingwen, a policeman at the Pikou Frontier Defense Police Station.

During Sun Qian's incarceration in the brainwashing class, while she was being tortured by police officer Qi Jingshuai, he told her, "Your death will be considered a suicide even if I beat you to death, and we'll throw your body off a bridge." On April 25, 2002, Sun Qian was taken by force to the Labor Reform School of Dalian City and sentenced to two years of forced labor. While she was there her, cellmate was Dafa practitioner Liu Feng, who was also subjected to persecution. Liu Feng was a student who had been going to school in Ireland.

Because Sun Qian's health was deteriorating as a result of persecution, she was released from the Labor Reform School of Dalian City in April 2003 to obtain medical treatment. When Sun Qian got home, however, local police and members of the 610 Office repeatedly harassed her. Upon the conclusion of her medical treatment, Ms. Sun's employment was reinstated.

In January 2005, Sun Qian was arrested again. On March 10, 2005, the Court of Shahekou District, Dalian City, Liaoning Province tried her case in secret. She was found guilty of "breaking the law" and illegally sentenced to six years, and held at the Dalian City Prison.

Sun Qian was on a hunger strike for a long time in protest of the persecution inflicted on her, so her persecutors forcefully inserted a feeding tube into her stomach. This resulted in stomach bleeding and she was infected with tuberculosis. On the brink of death, the prison had no choice but to release her to the care of her family. Around March 10, 2005, while Sun Qian was being sentenced by the court, her parent's home was ransacked and illegally searched by the Internal Security Brigade of the Police Department of Dalian City. They showed no warrants and made no excuses. They searched Ms. Sun's parents' home while they were out, stole their valuables, including their computer, scanner and other equipment, amounting to a loss of tens of thousands of yuan.
