(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Bi Daihong from Dalian City, Liaoning Province was illegally sentenced to two years of forced labor. She was brutally tortured at the labor camp and developed symptoms of late-stage ovarian cancer. She passed away soon after she was released from the labor camp.

Bi Daihong was born in 1968 and she worked at the Dalian City Ship Examination Bureau. She suffered from headaches and protruding spinal disc(s), but she became very healthy after she started practicing Dafa in 1996. When the persecution of Falun Gong started in 1999, she went to Beijing many times to appeal and to clarify the truth. The perpetrators ransacked her home and extorted money from her. Her work unit illegally fired her and she lost her source of income.

In January 2003, Bi Daihong was reported when clarifying the truth. She was arrested by officers from Longwangtang Police Station in Lushun. The officers illegally held her there for one month without notifying her family. She was later sentenced to two years of forced labor and held at the Dalian Forced Labor Camp.

On her first day at the labor camp, Bi Daihong refused to take off her clothes and submit to a physical search. The guards ordered a group of eight inmates to strip her naked outside a men's restroom on the first floor. The eight inmates beat her until she was covered with wounds and bruises. Her ears and eyes were injured, and most of her face was black and blue. After striking her to the ground, inmate Zhao Hui violently kicked her mouth, which cut her lips and knocked her teeth loose. They later sent her to solitary confinement to further persecute her. Her legs were severely injured from torture and she was crippled. When her mother inquired about her legs, the labor camp authorities lied and claimed Bi Daihong was punished for hitting someone after refusing to submit to physical search.

Three months later, the superficial wounds were gone but Bi Daihong started to cough, and had fever and amenorrhea. She suffered from pain so severe that she often could not sleep at night. She became weary and emaciated. The guards ignored her condition and never allowed her to see a doctor. They ordered inmates to watch her around the clock and restrict her freedom. She was not allowed to go to the restroom even when she was incontinent. In addition, she was forced to do slave labor picking peas. She had to carry sacks of peas, each weighing between 50 kg [110 lbs] and 100 kg [242 lbs], up and down the stairs.

Inmate Lin Chunhong, who was assigned to watch Bi Daihong, extorted about 4,000 Yuan from Bi Daihong's parents, taking advantage of their anguish by lying to them that their money would speed up the release process.

When Bi Daihong's family met with her, they saw that she looked sickly. They strongly urged the labor camp authorities to take Bi Daihong to a hospital. The authorities reluctantly took Bi Daihong to have a check-up. The result came out the next day and the authorities immediately told her family to fill out paperwork for medical parole.

Bi Daihong was diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer. The labor camp authorities were afraid of taking responsibility should she die during medical treatment, so they pressed her family to follow the procedure for release from the labor camp. Bi Daihong was taken home and she passed away on September 1, 2005, about two months after the diagnosis.
