Mr. Tan Xueli Tortured to Death after Six Days in Yongchuan Prison

Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Tan Xueli lived in Qunli town, Pengxi County, Suining City, Sichuan Province. He used to spend all his money on doctors, but was never cured. After practising Falun Dafa, however, his illnesses went away.

In May 2000 (a busy season to harvest and plant rice), he was arrested by local Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials, leaving his grain in the field. His kind-hearted friends helped him harvest the rice, but officials extorted one thousand yuan1 each from them because Mr. Tan practised Falun Gong.

On the evening of July 24th, 2005, Mr. Tan Xueli was again arrested. He was sentenced to prison, and sent to Yongchuan Prison in Chongqing City on June 13th, 2006. He was tortured to death on June 19th, 2006, only six days after being admitted to the prison. His body was covered with wounds, the details of which are yet to be investigated.
