Case Description:
Mr. Peng Dong, 29, was a college graduate from Hantai District, Hanzhong City, Shanxi Province, and a worker in the local silk industry. Because he was a Falun Dafa practitioner, he was illegally sent to Zaozihe Forced Labor Camp for two and a half years, where he suffered from brutal tortures. In 2002, because he refused to submit to the evil's demands, Mr. Peng was sent to the isolation room and very heavily tortured. He was tied to the "dead person's bed" for many days. In 2003, after being released from the labor camp, he was sent to brainwashing classes. Under brutal torture, Mr. Peng compromised with the authorities. One night in June 2005, while he was sleeping, his breathing suddenly became abnormal, and he passed away several minutes later. His family members tried in vain to take him to the hospital for emergency rescue. Peng Dong had already solemnly declared that everything he wrote against Dafa and against his conscience under the pressure of the persecution is void.
