Yuan Suxian - 袁素仙
Ms. Yuan Suxian was about 65 years old. Her hometown was in Second Team, Seventh Village, Zhujia Commune, Yinshan Town, Zizhong City, Sichuan Province. She moved to Minzhu Village, Family Housing of Jiulongpo Construction Limited Corp. She had been serving a one-year sentence at forced labor in the Maojiashan Women's Labor Camp beginning in October of 2001. At the camp she endured numerous hardships. She was under close monitoring by the police after her release.
On January 28, 2005, Ms. Yuan Suxian and her fellow practitioner Ms. Fan Defang were both arrested by police from the Tiaodeng Town Station in Dadukou District and detained in the Dadukou District Detention Center. Their "crime" was that they picked up a flyer that clarified the truth about Falun Gong from the ground and asked some people about it.
Later the police obtained an arrest order and told them, "If you Falun Gong practitioners refuse to give us money, then we will torture you." Ms. Yuan and Ms. Fan both maintained their innocence. They appealed many times for their release to the prosecutor. The prosecutor, however, refused to listen to their appeals and even threatened to have them tortured to death.
These two ladies asked people to tell their families what happened to them and to seek legal counsel. They told their friends that in case something very bad happened to them, they must seek a fair and reliable authority for assistance. They also wrote to the Procuratorate regarding their case.
On July 29, 2005, Ms. Yuan was sent to the hospital when she started vomiting blood and mucous. She died the next day in the hospital.
