(Clearwisdom.net) On April 25, 2002, Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Li Jian was tortured to death in Henan Province No. 3 Labor Camp. He was 34 years old.
Li Jian was a resident of Zhengyang County, Henan Province. He was a lawyer. He was kidnapped and illegally sentenced to three years of forced labor because he made truth clarification materials. The authorities arrested him in 2000 and sent him to the No. 3 Labor Camp in Xuchang City, Henan Province in late April 2001.
During the period of his detention in Team 1, Division 3 of the labor camp, he suffered inhumane treatment. He was tortured on numerous occasions with rope and endured compulsory brainwashing. He was deprived of sleep and forced to do heavy labor, not being allowed to rest until he finished his assigned work. He suffered tremendous physical and psychological torture. He was young at the time he died and in perfect health, yet the labor camp officials were shameless enough to claim that he died from sudden illness.
