Mr. Li Hongjie, 66, was a retired worker (security head) of the interior decoration factory of the No. 1 Automobile Factory of Changchun City, Jilin Province. While posting truth-clarification posters in May 2001, someone informed the police of his actions. As a result, two police officers from Kaixuan Police Station, including officer Zhou Wei, arrested him and searched his home. The authorities then imprisoned him for a month at the No. 1 Detention Center of Changchun City. After extorting a lot of money from him, they finally released him. Hard hit by the persecution, Mr. Li fell ill and finally died in July 2002. Despite Mr. Li's death, police from Kaixuan Police Station continued harassing his family.
