Case Description:

Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Wang Guiming, 40, lived in Tonghua City, Jilin Province. On the afternoon of February 13, 2008, Mr. Wang was selling baked sweet potatoes at the Hongyuan Market. At 2 p.m., policeman Zhang Xiaoxu from the Xinzhan Station arrested Mr. Wang. Police officers interrogated Mr. Wang for seven hours. Several officers ransacked his home at 4 p.m. At around 9:20 p.m., the police took him to the Dongchang District Police Department, completed his paper work, then detained him in the Changliu Detention Center. On February 17, 2008, he was taken to Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp and detained in the Xinsheng (Brainwashing) Ward. According to sources, Mr. Wang went on a hunger strike to protest, and as a result he was force-fed and electric baton shocked. He died on February 29, 2008.

On March 3, 2008, the camp administrators allowed Mr. Wang's family to see his body but not allowed to take photos. His family found two dry cuts on his head, one was 10cm and the other was 11cm but blood washed off. They also found an egg size of dark bruise on his left cheek, another one on the back of his head. There was a 10cm size of dark bruise on his left chest near to his heart, and another one on his right chest. There was an egg size of dark bruise and injury at his anus area. Obviously he died because many electric batons shocked him for a long time. His family wanted to take his body home but was not allowed. The camp administrators refused the family to visit with the guards who had witnessed his death. His family felt they had no choice but to try to file a lawsuit with the Chengjiao District Court in Changchun City. They tried to do this for two days but in vain. Mr. Wang's wife now under the pressure and dare not go home, because policemen try to arrest her.
