Case Description:

Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Xu Huibi, 63, was a retired senior teacher from the Southwest Aluminum Limited Corp. Elementary School. On September 1, 2003, Jiulongpo District Domestic Security agent Chen Gang (male), and other officers from the Xipeng Town Police Station, and the District Police Department arrested Ms. Xu at her home and took her to be interrogated at the Town Police Station. Because she did not give them any information or renounce Dafa, they detained her in the Huayan District Detention Center. Ms. Xu persisted in doing the Falun Dafa exercises while being held in the Detention Center, and was tortured with brutal force-feeding because of it. The torture caused severe damage to her mental and physical health, yet the police still sentenced her to four years in prison and took her to the Chongqing City Yongchuan Women's Prison.

In the prison, Xu Huibi was assigned to forced labor in the plant that has toxic gases. It was difficult to breathe, and she was forced to finish a certain amount of work each day. Ms. Xu was brutally tortured until she was very weak, and her feet were in extreme pain, causing her to be unable to walk. Even under these conditions, the prison doctor still refused to let her rest, saying that she was fine for labor. Two other prisoners dragged her by her arms to the plant every day. She became emaciated, she could not walk or eat, and had difficulty breathing. The poisonous gases caused severe lung dysfunction, and also damaged other organs. On August 31, 2007, the prison administration finally ordered her family to come and pick her up. By this time, Ms. Xu could not take care of herself and there was no hope of recovery. She died soon after being released, on March 7, 2008. During her detention, Ms. Xu's employer stopped her retirement salary payments, and refused to treat her like other retired senior teachers.
