Case Description:

Ms. Tang Ying, 48, was a resident of Dongshan Town in Donghaidao, Zhanjiang City, Guangdong Province. She started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997 at a practice site in the city. Her physical body was purified, and her xinxing [mind-heart nature, moral character] improved rapidly. She went back to her hometown to promote the practice, started exercise sites there, and helped the predestined people in Donghaidao District to cultivate Falun Dafa.

On her way to Beijing to appeal in February 2000, the local "610 Office" abducted her and sent her to the detention center for persecution and torture. She was detained for a month before being released.

The local "610 Office" and police station then broke into her home several times in February 2001, and detained her in the Dongshan Police Station for further torture. She was deprived of sleep and was interrogated continuously. She was also tortured and interrogated, and forced to stand on her knees for an entire night. They sent her to the Zhanjiang Detention Center to continue persecuting her. In the wintertime, the vicious people poured cold water on her, and put her in heavy shackles.

After a month, she was transferred to a brainwashing class in Suixi County. She refused to write the statement accepting the brainwashing, and as a result, three months later she was sent to Sanshui Forced Labor Camp in Guangdong Province. She received even worse abuse in the forced labor camp, both physical and mental. She was ill after she wrote the "Three Statements" under high pressure. Then she was forced to go through surgery, which resulted in an infection at the surgery wound. She was released under medical parole when she was dying, and she passed away in June 2003.
