Case Description:
Mr. Chen Fengliang was in his 40's, an employee of the Labor Ministry of Dachang Muslin Autonomous County, Hebei Province. He used to have severe kidney disease and could not work, but fully recovered after practicing Falun Gong at the end of 1998. He was detained for more than two months starting in August 2000, because he had passed out truth-clarifying materials. He was sentenced to three years of forced labor, but was rejected by the labor camp due to his high blood pressure. Police extorted eight thousand yuan from his family before releasing him. In September 2001, he and his wife were both abducted and sent to a brainwashing class in Daying, Tong County. After that, his old diseases came back. In April 2003, his employer and the local 610 Office tried to abduct him again to another brainwashing class, but they failed. He was sent to a hospital on the same night, and died twenty days later in the hospital.
