Another Falun Gong practitioner, Mr. Li Huabin, died on January 12th, 2012 after being abused at the Er'ehu Brainwashing Centre in Ziyang City, Sichuan Province. Mr. Li was released at the end of December 2011, and he began to lose consciousness shortly after returning home. His symptoms are very similar to that of physician Mr. Wu Yihua, a Falun Gong practitioner who died on December 12th, 2011 after abuse in detention. It has been alleged that forced drug administration at the brainwashing centre led to Mr. Li's death.

Mr. Li, in his 70's, was healthy before the arrest. For over a decade, he often rode a bicycle to Dongxi Town, which is several miles away, to repair metal pots.

In August 2011, Li Huabin went to Pingwu Town and played a DVD exposing the persecution of Falun Gong in a farmer's home. He was reported and arrested by officers from the Pingwu Town Police Station. He was later taken to the Er'ehu Brainwashing Centre in Ziyang City, where he was subjected to brutal brainwashing. He was pressured to write the “five statements” to renounce Falun Gong.

Mr. Li was released at the end of December 2011. At 9:00 p.m. on January 11th, 2012, he lost consciousness and failed to respond to medical treatment. He passed away in the afternoon the next day.
