Print  E-mail 
Ms. Wang Xiuhua

Ms. Wang Xiuhua was 51 years old and lived in the Mentougou District in Beijing. On October 30, 2004, the police from the National Security Section of the Mentougou District Police Department arrested Ms. Wang and another practitioner, Liu Zhenxia while they were distributing materials exposing the persecution of Falun Gong near Tanzhe Temple. The police ransacked their homes and sentenced them to two years of forced labor. On November 25, 2004, they took Ms. Wang away and sent her to the Tuanhe Dispatch Division in Beijing. In mid-December 2004 she was transferred to Group 2, Division 6 at the Kaiping Forced Labor Camp in Tangshan City, Hebei Province.

On June 22, 2005, authorities from the Kaiping Forced Labor Camp in Tangshan City phoned Ms. Wang's family and told them that she had been diagnosed with an "intestinal obstruction" and "electrolyte abnormalities" and told her family to take her home. When her family saw her, she could not respond clearly. She had a blank look on her face and could not move her arms or legs. The labor camp authorities ordered her   family to take her home.

Her family rushed her to the hospital for emergency treatment. In addition to urinary retention, Ms. Wang suffered from nausea and vomiting, and showed other abnormalities such as the inability to think clearly, a blank stare, the inability to speak, immobility of arms and legs, and loss of feeling in the lower body, all of which are typical symptoms of severe nerve damage.

Medical treatment alleviated her symptoms and she stopped vomiting, but she still had urinary retention and had to be kept on a catheter. The damage to her central nervous system did not improve. On July 15, Ms. Wang stopped breathing. Resuscitation efforts failed and she died.
