Case Description:

Wu Dabi was a 57 year old retired government employee from Mimou Town, Qingbaijiang District, Chengdu City, Sichuan Province.

On February 4, 2002, four to five policemen from Suining City and Xindu District Chengjiao substation abducted her from her home without reason and jailed her in the Xindu District Detention Center. She protested by going on a hunger strike. The next day, police transferred her to the Suining City Wujiawan Detention Center where she went through countless tortures. After 25 days of hunger striking, she was finally released.

On the afternoon of May 23, 2002, six to seven policemen from Suining City and Xindu District Chengjiao substation went to her home. They tricked her into opening the door. Once inside, the police revealed their true intentions and told her that they were there to take her to a forced labor camp and that they had been through all the necessary procedures. Wu Dabi and her family members firmly refused their illegal demands and spread the Fa and clarified the truth to these policemen. Even their neighbors tried to reason with the police saying that they were not allowed to arrest good people. The police were held back for three hours by these people, but they still insisted on taking Wu Dabi away. Wu Dabi was forced to take an extreme action. She jumped out of a window to try and escape and was injured in the process. Her family members took her to the Xindu People's Hospital. She passed away the next day.
