Case Description:

Dafa practitioner Zhang Guohua of Yiyuan County was brutally murdered on July 12, 2002 by guard Zhang Zhaogui, Pu Xianmin, and Xie Mou at the Qiugu Forced Labor Camp in Zibo City, Shandong Province.

Zhang Guohua, 25 years old, a university graduate, worked with the Family Planning Committee in Yiyuan County, Shandong Province. In early 2001, he was kidnapped and taken to Class nine, Team seven, Division four of the Qiugu Forced Labor Camp in Zibo City, Shandong Province.

Because Zhang Guohua had steadfast faith in Falun Dafa, the prison police cruelly persecuted him both physically and mentally. On July 12, 2002, division leader Zhang Zhaogui appointed instructor Pu Xianmin and shift team leader Xie Mou to torture Zhang Guohua. They used electric batons to inflict devastating damage to his body with savage torture that was beyond human endurance. Having lost all control over the motion of his body, Zhang Guohua tumbled down a flight of 16 steps at 6:15 a.m. Another innocent person was thus tortured to death.

On the same day, around 5 p.m., after the incident, the forced labor camp held a meeting with all the Falun Gong practitioners detained there. Instructor Pu Xianmin spoke first, saying, "Today a minor incident happened in our camp. It is such a minor incident that it cannot be more commonplace. Zhang Guohua is dead." Division leader Zhang Zhaogui told everyone that they were not allowed to grieve.
