Ms. Zheng Xiaohua from Hunan Province Persecuted to Death
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Zheng Xiaohua was tortured in the Baimalong Labor Camp in Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province until she could not take care of herself, and she was released only when her life was in danger. She died on May 17, 2006.
Ms. Zheng Xiaohua was a Falun Dafa practitioner who lived in Qiyang County, Yongzhou City, Hunan Province. Before she started cultivating Falun Dafa in 1998, she suffered many medical conditions such as kidney stones, an ectopic pregnancy, and Budd-Chiari Syndrome, causing her to always be very thin and dependent on medicine. After practicing Falun Dafa, all her ailments were gone, and she gave birth to a child in 2001.
In October 2002, Ms. Zheng Xiaohua carried her daughter with her to Beijing to appeal, and was arrested on Tiananmen Square. Local policemen took her back and detained her in the detention center, where she was beaten by prisoners and abused badly. In February 2003, she was sentenced to 18 months of forced labor and locked in the Baimalong Labor Camp in Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province.
Inside the camp, Ms. Zheng Xiaohua was threatened by her monitors and tortured by not being allowed to sleep. She was forced to stand facing the wall, forced to sit on a small stool, and punched and kicked at will, resulting in severe mental and physical damage. Her old sicknesses recurred, causing her whole body to swell and her skin to turn very yellow. The Camp Administration put unknown drugs in her meals, and said the drugs were for healing. But Ms. Zheng Xiaohua's condition worsened after she took them, and she could not take care of herself.
In October 2003, because they were afraid that she would die in the camp, the camp administration let her family pick her up to shed the responsibility. Her family sent her to the hospital to be rescued, but the hospital refused because there was no hope. Although her condition got a bit better after returning home, she still died on May 17, 2006 due to the severe mental and physical damage she sustained in the labor camp.
