Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Tai Zhengxu is an employee of the Shuyang County Grain Administration in Jiangsu Province. He is detained in the Hongzehu Prison with a seven-year prison term just because he clarified the truth about Falun Gong.

At the beginning of the persecution, Mr. Tai Zhengxu was forced to leave home to avoid being arrested in July 2001. He was arrested in 2002 while telling people the facts about Falun Gong. Four to five policemen beat him until he passed out. He was detained, threatened, and tortured, and not allowed to sleep for more than ten days. Later, he was sentenced to imprisonment and lost his freedom.
