Changli County Brainwashing Center
Ms. Zhang Yuqing, around 60 years old, was a resident of Houliutuo Village, Nijing Township, Changli County, Hebei province. During the past years, she was arrested many times because she clarified the truth about the persecution of Falun Dafa. In November 2004, police officers from the Nijing Township police station took her to the Changli County Brainwashing Center. She was tortured in the brainwashing center because she continued to do the Falun Gong exercises. She was forced to sit on a steel wire chair for a long time. Due to the torture her health deteriorated and she was near death's door. The brainwashing officers told her family that they could come and get her for 2,000 yuan. She was deeply troubled. On January 15, 2005, soon after Ms. Zhang Yuqing returned home, she passed away.
