Ms. Huang Tao was arrested on January 9th, 2005 by officers from the Yuxi Domestic Security Division, leaving her 96-year-old mother alone with no one to look after her. She was sentenced to four years in the No. 2 Women's Prison, where she was forced to do hard labour. Due to the harsh treatment and poor conditions, she developed severe diabetes and lost a lot of weight. She was finally released in December 2006 to seek medical treatment.

The authorities continued to harass Ms. Huang after her release, and withheld her pension from January 2005 to January 2009. She became increasingly weak and her condition deteriorated. Ms. Huang Tao passed away on July 28th, 2011.
