The persecution of Ms. Zhou Dingying and her husband from Yuechi County

Ms. Zhou Dingying is a Falun Gong practitioner from Fulong Town, Yuechi County, Guang'an. Her husband, Mr. Qu Zhenwu, is also a practitioner. After the Chinese Communist Party started to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, police officers Liu Daoming and Liu Wei from Fulong Town Police Station and others that didn't know the truth often harassed them and tried to force them to give up cultivation.

On February 10, 2004, Yuechi County officials illegally arrested Ms. Zhou. The police interrogated her using torture and forced a false confession from her. After being beaten, she was imprisoned in Yuechi Lockup. They also wanted to arrest her husband, Mr. Qu, so he was compelled to be destitute and homeless. Ms. Zhou was sentenced to forced labor for two years and taken to Nanmusi Women's Forced Labor Camp in the Zizhong County, Sichuan Province. She was tortured inhumanly for two years.
