Case Description:
Ms. Wang Wenduan, over 50 years old, was an employee of the Dingzhou Supply and Marketing Co-op. She lived in the family housing compound of Dingzhou City Administration of Radio, Film and Television. Before practicing Falun Dafa, Ms. Wang suffered from breast cancer. Although she had several surgeries, her illness was incurable. After she practiced Falun Dafa, the cancer disappeared and she became healthy again. In 2000, Ms. Wang was unlawfully sent to a forced labor camp for a year for distributing Falun Dafa truth clarification materials. After she was released, she continued to practice Falun Dafa diligently. In May 2003, Wang was sent to the Zhuozhou Brainwashing Center, where the police beat her so cruelly that the wounds from her previous surgeries split open. Many times, Wang passed out from the beatings. When she was sent back to Dingzhou Detention Center, she was already in critical condition. However, the local "610 Office" and police department refused to let her go home. Later, the detention center had Ms. Wang's family to take her home for fear of being held responsible. Because of the severe torment she suffered, her condition deteriorated. Ms. Wang passed away in July 2004.
