Ms. Li Zhanjin from Beijing is a former senior engineer at the Qingniao Company affiliated with Beijing University. She was forced to quit her job. She was transferred from the Haidian Detention Centre to Beijing Women's Prison on March 24th, 2011, where she is currently undergoing forced brainwashing.
Ms. Li was arrested by officers from the Haidian District Police Station on December 29th, 2009, at Haidian Book City. Haidian Court officials tried her in July 2010. Ms. Li's lawyer entered a non-guilty plea for her but the court still sentenced her to three years in prison.
Ms. Li appealed to the Beijing Second Intermediate Court, but the court did not hold a hearing, instead sending two judges to go through the motions by having a conversation with her in October 2010. Beijing Second Intermediate Court then upheld the original sentence in response to her appeal in November 2010.
Ms. Li was held in the Haidian Detention Centre for nearly 14 months. While detained there, she was subjected to physical abuse and mistreatment. She was made to sit on a small bench in one position for a long time. She couldn't move or look around. As a result, her expression became dull, and her vision decreased. She was absent-minded for a time, and her teeth fell out.
