Case Description:
Gu Yalou, male, 32, went to post truth-clarifying materials at 11 p.m. on September 26, 2001. At midnight, he was arrested and brought to the Beihan Police Station. On September 27 at 10 a.m., the police sent him to the State Security Brigade of the Renqiu City Police Department. The police wouldn't allow his wife to visit him. At noon on September 29, his wife heard through inside information that he would be brought to trial that afternoon. The police asked for 20,000 yuan RMB (Average monthly pay of an urban worker is 500 yuan) in exchange for his release after the trial. On September 30, at about 4 p.m., his wife got the money ready and was going to pick him up. At that point, two people from the township government came and asked his wife to go to Renqiu City. When his wife reached the police station, she was taken directly to the third floor conference room. One director of the station read to her a written statement, which said that Gu Yalou died during trial the previous evening at around 7:30 p.m. on the 5th floor.
