Mr. Wu Jinkui, 57, lived in Huangguan Village, Yuping Township in Pingjiang County, Hunan Province. His home was located in a poverty-stricken mountainous area, where the local people live hard lives. After practising Falun Dafa, Mr. Wu's illnesses disappeared, and life was happy and easier. After the persecution began in 1999, police from the Township Station and Pingjiang County Domestic Security Division arrested and detained him multiple times.
In September 1999, Yuping Township 610 Office1 agents arrested him, extorted 600 yuan2 from him, and detained him for ten days.
In December 2000, Mr. Wu went to Beijing to appeal. Officers from the Yuping Township Station took him back and detained him in the Township Senior Centre. He was mistreated by Party officials Dai Wenming, Tang Huhai, and Li Xianwen (all male) and police officers. They beat him, hung him up by his handcuffs, starved him, deprived him of sleep, detained him with female practitioners, etc. Additionally, three thousand yuan was extorted from him. Township Secretary Wong Fangping cruelly beat Mr. Wu and two other practitioners, and choked Mr. Wu until he almost suffocated. Mr. Wu passed out due to the brutal beatings.
Party officials also ransacked his home, took his TV set, motorcycle, 110 pounds of pork (for the family Chinese New Year meal), and other personal items. They even tore down his older brother Mr. Wu Yinkui's house and took the wood remains of the house. Mr. Wu Yinkui was held in a forced labour camp from March 28th, 2001, to February 22nd, 2002. As a result he lost sight in both eyes, his legs were deformed and he became unable to walk. His whole body became numb, and he could not take care of himself.

In April 2003, Mr. Wu Jinkui was arrested again, detained with his brother for a month, and beaten inhumanly multiple times. His family had 500 yuan in cash extorted from them.
In May 2004, Mr. Wu Jinkui was arrested once again and detained for two months. He was beaten until he was severely injured and paralyzed. An x-ray taken in 2007 in a hospital in Changsha City showed that his entire spine was deformed due to the injuries. He died on May 16th, 2007.
