Case Description:

( Ms. Li Cuihua was released on medical parole in October 2014 after she was tortured and fell unconscious while imprisoned for not renouncing her faith in Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

After five years of being bedridden and suffering, she passed away on May 28, 2019. She was 64.

Ms. Li Cuihua before her death

Ms. Li began to practice Falun Gong in 1996. She credited the practice for improving her health and elevating her character. After the persecution began in 1999, she was repeatedly harassed and arrested. She was forced to live away from home to avoid the persecution.

Unable to bear the pressure, her husband divorced her. When he later had a car accident and became bedridden, Ms. Li took good care of him, until he completely recovered.

Ms. Li's latest arrest was on November 7, 2009. She was sentenced to eleven years and served time at Liaoning Women's Prison, a place notorious for its relentless torture of Falun Gong practitioners.

In addition to Ms. Li, several other Falun Gong practitioners are also in critical condition as a result of torture in the prison.
