Ms. Zhang Shujun Dies as Result of Torture in Jiangxi Province

Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhang Shujun, 47, lived in Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province. After the persecution of Falun Dafa began on July 20th, 1999, she went to Beijing to appeal to the government several times. Because she tried to inform people about the true nature of Falun Gong, she was arrested and sentenced to three years in prison.

Ms. Zhang was arrested again in March 2006 and charged with producing leaflets exposing the persecution. The Qingyunpu District Court in Nanchang City sentenced her to ten years in prison. She was imprisoned at the Jiangxi Province Women's Prison located in Xinjian County, Nanchang City. She endured numerous brutal tortures while she was incarcerated, and her friends and family were not allowed to visit her.

On January 4th, 2008, Ms. Zhang was paralysed and in critical condition. Guards called her family and instructed them to pick her up from the prison hospital - Changzheng Hospital. She was thus "bailed out for medical treatment" on the verge of death. Only 16 days later, Ms. Zhang died in her home at around 3 a.m. on January 20th, 2008.
