Mr. Jin Xingbo was born on October 24, 1948, and lived in Wencheng County, Zhejiang Province. He and his wife Zhao Meilu were both Falun Dafa practitioners. They went to Beijing separately to appeal after the persecution started.
On November 27, 2000, Mr. Jin Xingbo was arrested at his home and jailed in the Hangzhou City First Prison. Mr. Jin went on a hunger strike to protest and was brutally force-fed. On July 3, 2001, he was suddenly sent home by the local police, who said he had a lung infection and was dying of lung cancer. Mr. Jin could not take care of himself and was dying. On July 21, 2001, Mr. Jin left this world.
Mr. Jin's family asked the police how was it possible that a strong man could suddenly be sickened with lung cancer while in police custody? The family requested an autopsy to properly determine the true cause of death. Local police and government officials, however, ignored his family's requests, and forced them to take his body on the afternoon of July 23, 2001, and have it cremated.
Mr. Jin's family went to Hangzhou City to file an appeal but received no satisfaction after more than two months wait. Mr. Jin's son (not a Falun Dafa practitioner) was working outside his hometown when he was overcome by rage and anger at the news of his father's death. On October 6, 2001, he set two local police vehicles on fire as a way of protest for his dead father. He has had to escape the police by travelling to a town far from his home. The local police arrested Mrs. Zhao Meilu for her son's actions and sentenced her to three years in prison. She was first jailed in the Hangzhou City First Prison, and now is likely being held in Henan Province.
