Case Description:
Mr. Ou Xiaode, 58, resided at 135 Yongfa Rd., Yongxing Town, Mianyang City, Sichuan Province. Before practicing Falun Gong he was very weak with many illnesses. After he had esophageal cancer surgery, his health was severely impaired. In 1997 he fortunately learned Falun Dafa, and then his illnesses went away. His body became healthy and he could even perform heavy physical work. After the evil CCP began to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, to validate Dafa Mr. Ou went to Beijing to appeal in December 1999. He was arrested while he was doing the exercises. Authorities from the Yongxing Police Station took him back from Beijing and detained him for 15 days. They extorted him of 5,000 yuan and ransacked his home. From February 26 to March 20, 2001, Mr. Ou was illegally locked up in the Gaoxin District Brainwashing Center for forced brainwashing and "reforming." Under the evil and brutal persecution, Mr. Ou wrote a guarantee statement giving up the practice. In July or August 2001, Mr. Ou asked fellow practitioners to help him make a solemn declaration on the Minghui/Clearwisdom website saying that all he had said and written under the evil high pressure was void, and that he would act righteously in the future. Because of long-term threats, and being tailed and monitored, Mr. Ou's body and mind were severely harmed. In early 2003 his body became swollen with ascites. Even so, Mr. Ou still persisted in going out to clarify the truth. Later, his illness exacerbated and he died on July 22, 2003.
