Case Description:
On two occasions Ms. Long Gang, a female Falun Dafa practitioner from Chongqing City, went to Beijing to peacefully appeal for an end to the persecution of Falun Dafa. Due to her legal appeals, she was illegally sentenced to two years in a forced labor camp and was held at the Wulidian Maojiashan Women's Forced Labor Camp situated in Chongqing City. In order to protest against the persecution against her, she conducted a hunger strike. As a result, the police of the Forced Labor Camp brutally force-fed her, but instead of properly guiding the tube down her esophagus they mistakenly forced it down her trachea and into her lungs. The tube perforated her lung, which endangered her life and caused her to be in critical condition. In order to shirk their responsibility, the forced labor camp personnel claimed that she had contracted tuberculosis and asked her family to take her home. After she returned home, her health gradually improved. However the County Public Security Bureau of Tongliang ordered some people from Anju Town to detain Long Gang in the brainwashing center at a detention center. Once she was detained there, she was tortured for four months, leading to a rapid decline in the state of her health. The "610 office" and the Public Security Bureau became afraid that she might die in the detention center, so to avoid having to take any responsibility for their actions, they asked Long Gang's family to take her home. On November 6, 2002, she passed away at home.
