(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Wang Guiming, a Falun Gong practitioner from Tonghua City, Jilin Province, was arrested and sent to the Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City on February 13, 2008, by officers at the Xinzhan Police Station in Tonghua City. On February 29, 2008, at the age of 38, he died as a result of torture in the labor camp. His wife, Han Fengxia, appealed on behalf of her husband. As a result CCP authorities from the police station and the street and community administration offices have threatened her many times. Right now she is too frightened to go home.

In 2006, Ms. Han was arrested by Dongchang District Domestic Security agents from Tonghua City and detained in Changliu Detention Center for a month because she tried to rescue her husband who was on a hunger strike to protest the persecution.

According to a reliable source, Wang Guiming died from being electrically shocked with many electric batons. His head had two straight wounds more than 10 centimeters in length. The wounds were not stitched together and there wasn't any swelling or blood.

Mr. Wang was arrested by Dongchang District Domestic Security agents in 2002 and illegally sentenced to five years in prison. He was previously imprisoned in Jilin Province Prison and Siping City Prison and was brutally tortured in both places. He was detained in solitary confinement in March 2006. The police used four electric batons to beat him when he was in solitary, causing severe facial injuries.

In order to survive, Wang Guiming had to sell baked sweet potatoes at the Hongyuan Market in Tonghua City for a living. On the afternoon of February 13, 2008, he was reported to police when he clarified the truth at the Hongyuan Market. At 2 p.m., Xinzhan Police Station Political Director Zhang Xiaoxu drove a 110 police emergency vehicle to arrest Mr. Wang, who was interrogated for seven hours and then taken to Changliu Detention Center to be "illegally detained" at 9:20 p.m.

Mr. Wang was then sentenced to two years of forced labor and taken to Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp. After just three days in the New Arrival Ward of the Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp, he was dead as the result of torture. As soon as Mr. Wang died, Chaoyanggou Labor Camp officials sealed off all outgoing information and closed down the New Arrival Ward. The labor camp did not notify Wang Guiming's family directly about his death. Instead, they told the local police to pass on a message to his family to bring him some clothes. His family did not go that same day. The next day, officials called Mr. Wang's elder sister and told her that Wang Guiming had died. They told his family to come to the labor camp. Until March 3, 2008, the labor camp officials allowed Mr. Wang's family to see his body but emphasized that they would not be allowed to take photos. They also assigned police to accompany the family and claimed that they "were afraid that the family would take the body away."

His family filed an appeal with the Chengjiao District Procuratorate in Changchun City, Jilin Province. They went to the Procuratorate twice within two days, but a Procuratorate official said, "Tell the labor camp to give them eight to ten thousand yuan and everything will be settled." Right now Wang Guiming's wife, Han Fengxian, is being threatened by CCP members and she is afraid to go home. We call for help from the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong and other justice organizations.
