Case Description:

Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Qian Naizhang, 42 years old, was an employee of the Agricultural Bank in Gaizhou City, Liaoning Province. In the morning of December 20, 2001, he practiced the Falun Gong exercises in front of his doorsteps. He was thus arrested by the police and illegally detained for 15 days.

Following the arrest and detention, he was then sent to the Yingkou Labor Camp for two years of forced labor. During the forced labor period, he went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. The police and other lawless persons physically and verbally abused him and he suffered the torture. In May 2002, Qian Naizhang walked out of the labor camp with the power of his righteous thoughts and was compelled to wander about homeless to avoid the persecution. When he was in Haicheng City the police again arrest and sent him to a detention center. He went on 12 days of a hunger strike to protest the persecution and his life was in critical condition. The detention center was afraid to take responsibility if anything happened to him, thus they released him. As this was happening, since Qian Naizhang's supervisors were afraid of being implicated, they sacked him from his job and did not give him a single cent for living expenses. Qian Naizhang met with financial difficulties. Since his health was fragile and he was under great mental pressure, he passed away on February 7, 2005.
