Case Description:
Ms. Chen Guohua, 57, was a practitioner from Chendu City, Sichuan Province. She started practicing Dafa in 1996. After she began practicing, she recovered from heart disease and high blood pressure. She went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa and to clarify the truth, and was detained for a month upon her return. Because she distributed truth-clarifying materials in October 2001, she was illegally sentenced to a year and a half in a forced labor camp, and was detained at a detention center for seven months. She was released to see the doctor outside the detention center in May 2002. When she distributed truth-clarifying materials in 2004, she was arrested and taken back to the detention center for more torture. Two weeks later she got out of the detention center using her righteous thoughts. A few days after her return home, she was once again arrested and taken to the detention center. After continuous torture and long-term persecution, Ms. Chen Guohua died on December 18, 2005.
