Imprisoned Shanxi Man Suddenly Dies, Family Suspects Foul Play
(Minghui.org) A Taiyuan City resident died in less than three months of his prison admission for refusing to renounce Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline being persecuted by the Chinese communist regime.
Mr. Zhao Cungui was arrested on November 17, 2015 for his faith. While held at Taiyuan City Detention Center, he was given food laced with unknown drugs. As a result, he developed blurred vision and growths on his head and legs.
The 62-year-old man was transferred to Jinzhong Prison in May of this year. A little over two months later, his family was notified that he died “after a sudden illness.”
The prison authorities have repeatedly refused Mr. Zhao’s family’s request to view his body. Instead, they are trying to pressure the family into signing the required paperwork to have the body cremated.
Only a few months earlier, another local Falun Gong practitioner and a physician, Mr. Wang Jigui, died in the same prison under suspicious circumstances.
While still shocked by Mr. Wang’s death, Mr. Zhao’s family couldn’t believe their own, a once healthy man, would also die so suddenly without any warning signs. They suspect Mr. Zhao was killed for his organs and are determined to find the true cause of his death.
