Mr. Fu Honglie Dies under the Pressure of Long-term Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Fu Honglie was a Falun Gong practitioner from Guanling County, Guizhou Province. He had been sentenced to forced labor for three years and was beaten until he lost hearing in one ear. After years of harassment and abuse, he died on November 13, 2010.
Mr. Fu Honglie, 68, lived on Shangyongxin Road in Yongning Town, Guanling County. He began to practice Falun Gong in Wuhan City, Hubei Province before the persecution started in 1999. He had participated in the large-scale group practice in Wuhan. After the persecution started, at the beginning of 2000 Mr. Fu went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong. He was arrested and detained in the Guanling County Detention Center. Thirty-eight days later, he was sentenced to three years of forced labor. He was detained in the Zhongba Forced Labor Camp. During his detention, he was beaten. As a result, Mr. Fu lost the ability to hear in one of his ears.
After he was released from the labor camp, officers from the Yongning Town Police Station often went to Mr. Fu's home to harass him. His home was ransacked many times. On July 16, 2006, Wang Jianjun, an officer from the Yongning Town Police Station, arrested Mr. Fu and detained him at a brainwashing center in the Maomaodong Reservoir area in Anshun City, Guizhou Province. On April 16, 2007, Zhang Sheng, a section chief of the Guanling County Police Department, and three other police officers went to Mr. Fu's home and ransacked it. They confiscated his Falun Gong books and materials. In 2008, he was sent to the brainwashing center in Anshun City again.
Due to long-term harassment and threats from the police, Mr. Fu lived under great mental pressure and was not able to lead a normal life. He passed away on November 13, 2010.
