(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Lin Jianhua went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong twice. The police arrested her on March 7, 2000, while she was on her way to a fellow practitioner's home. They detained her 45 days, finally taking her to the Hewan Forced Labor Camp with a one-year term.
Ms. Lin was arrested the second time on December 4, 2003 while she was talking to people about Falun Gong. The police ransacked her home and detained her in a brainwashing center. Ms. Lin went on hunger strike to protest. Two days later, the police took her to the Hewan Forced Labor Camp for another one-year term. This time, her term was extended for another half a year.
During these two and a half years of detention, Ms. Lin was inhumanly tortured in the labor camp. The guards put harmful drugs in her food, which severely damaged her health. After being released, the drug caused Ms. Lin to manifest symptoms similar to diabetes. She was emaciated and lost her eyesight. The police continued to monitor and harass Ms. Lin after her release. She never fully recovered her health, and under the long-term surveillance and harassment, Ms. Lin died.
