Case Description:

Mr. Li Junchen, 46, was a resident of Group Six, Xiyangzhuang Village, Shucai Township, Chuanhui District, Zhoukou City, Henan Province. He obtained Dafa in March 1999. After July 20, 1999, he was subjected to various forms of persecution repeatedly. In early 2000, the police barged into his house and conducted an illegal search. They took away 200 Yuan in cash and then kidnapped Li Junchen to the Shahebei Detention Center. While in detention, he was beaten by the police. Later his family members paid 1000 Yuan to bail him out.

On January 15, 2001, Li Junchen was cooking at home when the police came in and took him away forcefully. He was then detained in the Shachang Police Station and subjected to brainwashing. The police and the township government bought off some people to have them slander Dafa. They even called in some reporters to interview those people, fabricating evidence to frame Falun Gong. Since Li Junchen refused to cooperate with them and refused to give up his belief, he was detained for over seven months. Li Junchen suffered various tortures, such as being beaten by rubber sticks and shocked with electric batons. Later he developed severe pain in his lungs and had swelling all over his body. His face turned yellowish, and he was near death. Under this circumstance, he was released in September 2001 on medical parole. After he returned home, he was never able to recover from the torture that he had suffered and passed away in November 2001.
