( Ms. Li Qing was previously an employee of the Department of Supplies and Sales in the county government before she was dismissed from her job for refusing to renounce her belief in Falun Gong.

On August 20, 2009, Li Qing and three other female practitioners were illegally arrested by officers from the Political and Security Group of the Shan County Police Station and the Dongguan Police Station of Shan County. They were detained at the county detention center. Li Qing's home was searched and her personal belongings, including a computer and a printer, were taken away by the police.

The four practitioners were tortured during their detention period. They were forced to stand still for long periods of time, and deprived of sleep. A torture method called the tiger bench was used on them, too. Eventually, three of the practitioners were released while only Li Qing remained in custody. Her family members were not permitted to visit her in the detention center. On January 12, 2010, Li Qing was sentenced to six years of imprisonment by the Shan County Court, and sent to the Shandong Women's Prison on March 10.

Because of her steadfast belief in Falun Gong, Li Qing has been persecuted by the Communist Party. She was illegally sentenced the first time to three years of imprisonment by the Leqing City Court in Zhejiang Province in 2001, and sent to the Hangzhou Women's Prison.
