Ms. Cao Aihua Tortured to Death in Xinjiang Women's Forced Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Cao Aihua, a Falun Dafa practitioner from Aksu City, Xinjiang Province, was illegally arrested in August 2006 when she was using currency to promote quitting the CCP. In the middle of November, Ms. Cao was sent to the Urumqi Women's Forced Labor Camp. She died within a week as a result of torture. This was the third time Ms. Cao had been put into a forced labor camp.
Ms. Cao 's relatives are suing the forced labor camp. The case has reached the Xinjiang Supreme People's Procuratorate. The procuratorate and the labor camp have been trying to shift responsibility onto others.
Ms. Cao had one breast removed in the past because she had breast cancer. When she started to practice Falun Gong in the summer of 1998, she had just finished chemotherapy treatments. She had lost almost all her hair and she weighed less than 40kg. After only one week of practicing Falun Gong, she felt that Teacher had cleansed her body. From then on, she chose to practice Falun Gong.
After the persecution began in July 1999, she went to Beijing twice in order to clarify the truth and validate the Fa. Her mother knelt before the police officers and begged them not to put her daughter into the forced labor camp. She told them how her daughter had regained her health from practicing Falun Gong. Ms. Cao was arrested and sentenced twice to forced labor. The first time she was held at the Xinjiang Wulapo Forced Labor Camp from February 2001 to February 2003. The second time, they sentenced her in September 2003 to the Xinjiang Urumqi Women's Forced Labor Camp.
Her husband traveled more than 1000 km every month to visit her. Although her husband is not a practitioner, he knows that Falun Gong gave his wife a second life!
In the summer of 2006, Ms. Cao wrote truth clarification materials and messages about withdrawing from the CCP on paper currency. Police officers arrested and tortured her in August 2006. The head of the police station mentioned that they would release her as soon as she revealed the source of the truth clarification materials. Ms. Cao refused to give any information.
In October 2006, Ms. Cao was sentenced to forced labor for the third time. She was sent to Xinjiang Urumqi Women's Forced Labor Camp in November. In between, she was sent back and forth between police stations in Aksu and Alar. Only several days after she was sent to the Xinjiang Urumqi
Women's Forced Labor Camp, she was tortured to death.
Ms. Cao's husband and son (about 20 years old) could not believe that she had died so suddenly. Her father is currently very ill and in critical condition. Because of her family adamant demands, Ms. Cao's body was not cremated. Please support Ms. Cao Aihua's family!
In May 2003, practitioner Zhou Jun died at Xinjiang Urumqi Women's Forced Labor Camp as a result of torture. On December 31, 2005, many truth clarification phrases and flyers showed up in the streets of Aksu city. 610 Office personnel and police, including CCP secretary Wang Lequan, were yelling and demanding to "solve the case" in one week. Because of this, the police arrested many practitioners and even detained some of their family members for 24-hour interrogations.
