Ms. Wei Xingzhi was arrested at around 9 p.m. on September 23rd, 2009, when agents from the Wuhan City Police Department, Wuhan 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong), and the Shuiguohu Police Station pried open the door to her home and ransacked it. Ms. Wei was taken to the Wuhan City No. 1 Detention Centre. She was transferred to Wuhan Women's Prison in August 2010. Her elderly mother, who is in her 80's and requires assistance, has been left uncared for at home.
Ms. Wei was a kindergarten teacher at the No. 2 Day Care Centre located in the Shuiguohu area in Wuhan. Because she refused to give up practising Falun Gong, her workplace terminated her employment and withheld her salary for eight years. Ms. Wei has also been subjected to forced labour and brainwashing at the hands of the Chinese Communist Party for her belief in Falun Gong.
Ms. Wei went to Beijing in 2001 to clarify the facts about Falun Gong, but was detained in the Fangshan Detention Centre in Beijing. She held a hunger strike to protest the persecution.
In early June 2003, Ms. Wei was arrested at her workplace and her home was ransacked. She was taken to the Wuhan City No. 1 Detention Centre and later transferred to the Hewan Forced Labour Camp in Wuhan City. She was then transferred again on September 3rd, 2003, to the Shayang Forced Labour Camp, where she was detained for one year. Upon her release, she was emaciated and had physical deformities from the torture that she suffered.
