Ms. Liu's mother went to the detention center to visit her on January 23, but the detention center staff said that her daughter was in the hospital. At the hospital, she learned that Ms. Liu was in the emergency room. A guard from the detention center watched the area.

She returned to the hospital two days later, and the doctor said that Ms. Liu had swelled up suddenly. When her mom went to the emergency room to see her, the guard stopped her, and a policewoman called the Wendeng Domestic Security Division.

Several officers from the detention center and the domestic security division came. The mother cried. “You shouldn't harm my child,” she said. “She's a good person, so you cannot treat her like this. I want to take her home!”

Ms. Liu was very swollen, and the doctor told her mother that Ms. Liu's white blood cell count was dangerously low. He said she was in danger of dying if her condition did not improve.

Ms. Liu, from Weihai City, Shandong Province, was illegally arrested at Wendeng Health School on the evening of January 9, 2015. She was later illegally detained and taken to the Wendeng Detention Center.
