Case Description:
Li Xuechun, a 63 year-old, male, was a cadre of the Macheng City Light Industry Bureau. In 1999, Li went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa according to the permitted laws and consequently was arrested and detained illegally for more than 10 months. During the detention, this healthy old man with a ruddy complexion was tortured so severely that he became just skin and bones; even walking became extremely difficult for him. He was released for one month and had not yet recovered, when he was once again illegally arrested for distributing Dafa truth clarifying literature. In the Gulou Police Substation he was tortured on a bench for 36 hours [a torture method where the victim's legs are tied down to a bench while bricks are inserted under the tied legs, causing excruciating pain]. Six groups of police personnel took turns interrogating him. During the whole process, Li was not given any food and was not allowed to sleep. Facing the evil, this respected old man never yielded. When the police realized that they could get nowhere having used all means of torture, they illegally detained Li for a further three months. In December of 2000, after having suffered numerous brutal tortures, Li passed away.
