Case Description:

Mr. Zheng Lun, 78 years old, was from the Third Group, San Village, Fengtaixiang, Xinqiao Town, Suining City, Sichuan Province. After he started to practice Falun Dafa in 1996, his rheumatism was cured. Mr. Zheng went to Beijing to validate the Fa in 2000. On his way there, he was arrested and escorted back home. He was then detained in the detention center for more than four months and subjected to various forms of torture. He was forced to pay more than 1,000 yuan before being released. During Mr. Zheng's detention, his son, also a practitioner, was sentenced to three years in prison.

After being released from the second detention, Mr. Zheng wrote a solemn declaration to void the guarantee statement to not practice Falun Gong that he had signed under pressure. Liu Bailing, Head of the town's 610 Office, accompanied the local police and broke into Mr. Zheng Lun's home in the middle of the night to forcibly take him away. The persecution caused the elderly man's previous illnesses to recur. On March 17, 2005, Mr. Zheng passed away.
