Case Description:

( Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Fei Weidong, a teacher at the No. 1 Middle School in Jiujiang County, Jiangxi Province clarified the truth in a shop on October 17, 2005. The owner reported him. The police arrived and closed the shutters to the shop, then they beat Fei Weidong to death.

An autopsy was performed and the body was cremated soon afterwards. The ashes were returned to Fei Weidong's family. The authorities claimed Fei Weidong died from heart disease. They refused the family the right to make inquiries.

According to witnesses, there was a large hole on each of Fei Weidong's temples, and all of his front teeth were knocked out. The police beating was savage.

Four people at Jiujiang County Education Committee answered inquiries. (86-792-6812-022). They said, "Fei Weidong practices Falun Gong. He was buying a motorcycle at the shop. We don't know what happened. We know something happened and they called the 110 Emergency Response line, but he died sometime after the police arrived. All the questions should be answered by the police, we cannot."

The authorities of the Jiujiang County Police Department didn't pick up the phone, and neither did the officials of the No. 1 Middle School of Jiujiang County.

Fei Weidong was 41 years old. He had been detained many times for persisting in his Falun Gong practice. In late 2000 he was incarcerated at the Jiujiang County Police Department Detention Center. According to a report on the Minghui website, Fei Weidong refused to read Falun Gong-slandering books as demanded by the inmates at the Majialong Forced Labor Camp in Jiujiang City. The inmates forced him to kneel on a tungsten filament clapboard. Inmate Xu didn't allow him to use the restroom. In the daytime he was assigned a heavy workload. He was forced to stand against a wall with his feet close together and his eyes open for two consecutive nights. The inmates took turns monitoring him and often verbally abused him.
