Case Description:
Mr. Xie Chuhua, about 50 years old, was a practitioner who lived in Waisha Town, Denghai City, in Guangdong Province. On June 9, 2004, local police officers from the town of Waisha broke into Mr. Xie's home, ransacked it, confiscated his belongings, and arrested him. He was then sentenced and incarcerated in the Wolpo Public Security Office just because he believed in Falun Dafa.

The Chinese Communist Party police, along with personnel from the Longhu Village and Shantou City Public Security, humiliated and tortured him by hanging him up high by his handcuffs for a long period of time.

Mr. Xie Chuhua was illegally sentenced to forced labor and was held in the Meizhou Jail for three years. He was severely tortured, which caused internal breeding. He was then sent home by police officers after suffering so much that he could no longer function. Not only did he suffer physically from the tortures but he also experienced extreme fear and horrors, which couldn't be described in words.

Mr. Xie Chuhua died in June 2008, after he was subjected to a long period of mental and physical torture.
