Case Description:

Falun Gong practitioner Lin Shixiong, age 46, was from Yanji City, Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture, Jilin Province. Not long after the persecution began, Lin Shixiong peacefully appealed for justice for Falun Gong. He wrote a public letter addressed to the mayor of Yanji. For that, he was illegally put into a labor camp for one year. In 2002, two years after the Yanji City National Security Division sent him to the Yanji Detention Center, the National Security Division enforcers illegally sentenced him to 13 years in prison with fabricated charges. Mr. Lin was sent to the Jilin Prison. Mr. Lin suffered irreparable mental and physical trauma in the Jilin Prison. This was brought about by long-term inhuman treatment, harsh living conditions, and mental and physical torture ordered by the CCP. 

 After he was released for medical treatment, Jilin Prison and Yanji City's Political and Judicial Committee still wouldn't let go of Lin Shixiong. They often harassed him with the excuse of his incomplete jail term. Because of their frequent harassment, Lin Shixiong suffered great mental pressure. He was unable to nurse his health at home in peace. He passed away around November 20, 2006 at home.
