Case Description:
On the afternoon of January 5, 2008, Mr. Bai Heguo died in the Nanguanling Prison located in Dalian City, Liaoning Province. His family reports that his body was covered with bruises, and there was a bump on his head. He had clearly endured horrendous torture. Authorities hurriedly cremated the body, taking with it all evidence of torture.

Mr. Bai Heguo, 45, lived in Xiguangshan Village, Liutiao Town in Dengta City, Liaoning Province. Just because he believed in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and practiced Falun Dafa, police from Tongerpu District Department arrested him on June 9, 2002 and sentenced him to 11 years in prison. He was held in Liaoning Province Huazi Prison. Despite the various torture he endured in the past several years, Mr. Bai Heguo remained firm in his faith.

Without notifying his family, the Huazi Prison Administration secretly transferred Mr. Bai to the Nanguanling Prison in Dalian City at the end of December 2007. At 3 p.m. on January 5, 2008, the Prison Administration notified his family that he died. His family carried his ashes home on the morning of January 9, 2008.
