39-year-old Ms. Bai Wanling was a practitioner from nearby Fukang City, Xinjiang Province. Starting in 2000 she went to Beijing many times to appeal for Falun Gong. She was arrested and detained many times, and suffered persecution from her local authorities. In November 2000, while distributing Dafa truth-clarification materials out of town, she was arrested and sent to the Xinjiang Province Women's Forced Labour Camp to serve a three year term. While in detention, she was tortured brutally and suffered severe damage to her lungs as a result. The labour camp feared that her illness might be epidemic and did not want to take responsibility should she die there, so the camp notified her family to pick her up in June 2002. But the camp demanded a large sum of money from them. After her family rejected their request, the camp had to release her.
Even after her release, she was still constantly harassed by former "610 Office" director and officers from the police department. As a result of the enormous pressure, Bai Wanling passed away on May 31, 2004.
