Practitioner Mr. Jiang Zhonglin Died as a Result of Imprisonment
Dafa practitioner Mr. Jiang Zhonglin, 67, was illegally arrested at his home in Anqing City, Anhui Province on June 20, 2006. The police confiscated, without a legal warrant, family property and stole the 1,000 yuan that Mr. Jiang had in his pocket, the only money he and his family had.
During his illegal detention, the guards did not allow Mr. Jiang to sleep for several days and nights. In addition, he was forced to do heavy labor. Soon the old diseases that he suffered from before he started practicing Falun Gong recurred. The police refused family visits, despite the fact that his family applied for permission to visit several times. The police did not tell Mr. Jiang's family about his health condition.
On November 30, 2006, Mr. Jiang was illegally sentenced to three years in prison and the term was commuted for five years. Mr. Jiang weighed 75kg (165 lbs.) before he was arrested and was in full health. He weighed only about 45kg (99 lbs.) when he was released and could only take in liquid food. He was so weak that he could not climb stairs.
Later, Mr. Jiang could only drink water. He was bedridden and suffered pain over his entire body. He was spitting blood and lost consciousness several times. Mr. Jiang passed away on May 22, 2007 at home.
