Sudden Death of Li Deyin in the Hunan Women's Prison
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Li Deyin, 55, was a retiree from the Hunan Machine Tool Factory. She lived in an apartment of the Provincial General Labor Union in the Kaifu District, Changsha City. Ms. Li had started practicing Falun Gong in 1995 and had benefited physically and mentally. Since 1999 when the CCP started persecuting Falun Gong, Li Deyin had been to Beijing twice to appeal for Falun Gong. She was put under criminal detention several times.
On August 27, 2002, agents from the Minzhujie Police Station arrested her. Kaifu District court officials sentenced her to four years in prison. She was detained in the Changsha Women's Prison. Li Deyin had suffered much there for her persistence in Falun Dafa practice. Because she refused to recite the prison rules, she was punished to stand straight for a long time every day. At the end of 2003, because of passing Master's article to others, she was punished to stand from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. for four consecutive days. She was forbidden to sit down, even when she was eating. The "personal cangue" Zhang Genlin tortured her every day.
Li Deyin's husband came to the prison to visit her the morning of May 16, 2006. When he left Li Deyin at 10:00 a.m., Li looked good and told her husband that her prison term would end soon, and she would go home then. At 1:00 p.m. Li's family was informed she was in critical condition in the Changsha Center Hospital. When they arrived at the hospital to see her, she was unable to speak and was semi-conscious. She died the afternoon of May 25, 2006.
This is what the prison guard told Li's family: at 11:00 a.m. on May 16, Li Deyin was called to see the officials from 610 Office. She suddenly fell to the ground. After failing to rescue her she was sent to the hospital.
After Li Deyin died, many police in yellow or blue clothes were seen in the area where Li Deyin's home was. They hung around the gate and the court and prevented strangers from entering or leaving.
Li Deyin would have completed her imprisonment in three months. Why did agents from the "610 Office" come to talk to Li Deyin? What did they do to her? Why did she look well at 10:00 a.m. when her husband saw but she was unable to speak and think logically at 1:00 p.m. in the hospital? Why there were so many police around her home after she died?
The cause of her death and the role of the Hunan Women's Prison and that of the "610 Office" needs further investigation.
