Ms. Fang Siyi is a 28-year-old hairdresser in Jilin City, Jilin Province. After the persecution started on July 20, 1999, Ms. Fang Siyi was arrested and detained several times because she went to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong. Her husband, who always had a good relationship with her in the past, divorced her due to the pressure and the propaganda spread by the government. He also refused to pay child support for their newborn child and even helped the police to arrest Ms. Fang.


In May and June 2001, Ms. Fang was detained in the No. 3 Detention Center, Jilin City. In order to regain her freedom, she started a hunger strike. In fear that her death might cause them problems, the policemen released her. However, the police came to rearrest her before she had a chance to fully recover from the previous torture. To avoid the persecution, she jumped from a second-floor window. Although she broke her left foot, she managed to escape arrest. Ms. Fang was arrested again in mid-September 2002. The police ransacked her house and took away 810 yuan (Chinese currency) in cash, and other valuables. She was detained in No. 3 Detention Center in Jilin City. Under the order of Jilin City’s “610 Office” and Jilin Police Department, she was soon transferred to Jilin Women’s Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City, where she was almost tortured to death. This labor camp is also where quite a few Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured to death.


Ms. Fang’s three-year-old son is not able to see her.  Her friends and relatives have taken turns caring for him.
