Mr. Jin Lixin Dies Under Mysterious Circumstances in Prison
(Minghui.org) After practitioner Mr. Jin Lixin, about 40, died at the Zhejiang No. 2 Prison in 2007, the prison showed his family a corpse wrapped in white cloth, but the family was never actually allowed to view the body. The prison said that Mr. Jin had committed suicide, but his family knew that this could not have been the case.
Mr. Jin's parents grieved the death of their son and they soon passed away.
Mr. Jin, who has been described as gentle and shy, was a native of Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, and he graduated from college in Beijing. After his sister bought a home in Huamu Town, Pudong District, Shanghai, Mr. Jin moved to Shanghai with his parents.
Mr. Jin started to practice Falun Dafa around 1997. After the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners began in 1999, Mr. Jin, who was working in Hangzhou, took an assignment to work in his company's Beijing office.
In 2006, Mr. Jin displayed a banner in Tiananmen Square in protest of the persecution of Falun Dafa. He was arrested and sent back to Hangzhou, and he was later sentenced and jailed at the Zhejiang No. 2 Prison, also known as the Linping Prison.
In 2007, the prison told his family that he had committed suicide and that “medical treatment” was unable to revive him. No one actually believes that Mr. Jin took his own life.
The Zhejiang No. 2 Prison frequently runs blood tests on practitioners, claiming that the tests are part of the government's “special care” for practitioners. The true purpose for the blood tests is to catalog the practitioners so that they can be used as a living organ bank and killed at will for huge illicit profits.
Details of Mr. Jin Lixin's death remain unclear. We are asking for anyone who may have details on the case to provide more information.
