Most recent place of detention:
Mr. Wang Xiezhang, in his 50s, was the Liangshan County Foreign Economic Trade Committee deputy chairman. He had high blood pressure and heart disease, but these were all cured after practicing Falun Dafa. He went to Beijing in December 1999 to appeal and was arrested and detained for one month in the Liangshan County Detention Center. He was arrested a second time in October 2000 and was sent to a forced labor camp for two years. Because they did not allow him to practice Falun Gong, his sicknesses recurred. He was let out on bail for medical treatment. The 610 Office and his employer withheld his salary many times, fired him from his job, and threatened his family. In the spring of 2004, police officers tried to take him to a forced labor camp again, but he suddenly passed out. They took him to the Liangshan County Hospital. He was in a vegetative state and died in the winter of 2006. The ones responsible for his death were 610 Office Chairman Liu Chuanxiu (male), Political Security Office Chairman Zhang Jianming (male), Zhang Zhiyong (male) of Liangshan County Police Department, and Liangshan County Foreign Economic Trade Committee Chairman Li Chuansen.
