Ms. Bai Yun

Ms. Bai's death took place following her most recent arrest on April 28, 2014. The local procuratorate approved her arrest on May 30, and Shuimogou District Court tried her for the first time on November 13.

Prior to her latest arrest, Ms. Bai once served five years in prison from 2007 to 2011. She was taken into custody again two years after her release, and was kept at a brainwashing center for more than 40 days.

Back in 2005, she was incarcerated at a detention center for 15 days.

Ms. Bai was subjected to these ordeals simply for being a practitioner of Falun Gong, a self-cultivation system being persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party.
