Case Description:

Mr. Zhao Xianren, about 60 years old, was from Dongzhaojialou Village, Xujiahu Township, Yishui County. He was the coordinator of the Falun Gong practice site in Xujiahu Township. In mid-July 1999, he went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. He was arrested and taken back to Xujiahu Township, where he was forced to squat in the front courtyard of the Township Committee CCP Office for several hours. Several days later, he and other practitioners in the township were taken to the assembly hall for brainwashing.

In February or March 2000, he went to Beijing to validate the Fa once again. He was detained in the Yishui County Detention Center for one month. During that month, the guards inflicted inhuman torture on him. At the end of that monoth, he was taken to the Xujiahu Township brainwashing center.

In July or August 2001, personnel of the Linyi City 610 Office took him to the Wangcun Forced Labor Camp for a two-year term. He was so devastated, both mentally and physically, that after he returned home from the labor camp in mid-August 2005, he died.
