Case Description:
Ms. Jia Cuiying was 60 years old. She was a resident of Jishou City, Hunan Province. In Late 2001, she was sentenced to a 5-year prison term without legal cause and detained at Hunan Province Women's Prison. At the prison, Ms. Jia was detained in the Jingfu No. 4 Group, "Education and Reformation Group" (a group where practitioners are detained and brainwashed), Changfeng No. 5 Group, and in the Group for the Senior and Handicapped. Ms. Jia did not renounce her belief and actively clarified the truth to people at the prison. Once she exposed the lies when she was forced to watch a video program, slandering Falun Dafa.

In March 2003, Ms. Jia was transferred to the Group for the Senior and Handicapped. Because she taught other inmates to study the Fa and practice the exercises, the persecutors locked her in a confinement cell for 9 days.

After Ms. Jia began to cultivate Falun Dafa, all the diseases she suffered disappeared. When she was first detained, she was in good health. Yet, because of the several years of unlawful detention and persecution and cruel mental and physical torture, she became ill again. She was diagnosed with lung cancer in May 2004. She was released for medical treatment in June 2004. On October 20, 2004, Ms. Jia passed away.
