(Clearwisdom.net) Li Xinqi, male, 60 years old, was a villager from the 5th group of Changhe Village, Fangping Township, Guangan District in Guangan City, Sichuan Province. The local police persecuted all four members of the Li Xinqi family because they persisted in cultivating Dafa. Li Xinqi was tortured to death on April 18, 2002.
Li Xinqi was a well-known good man who began practicing Dafa in April 1998. After he began practicing Dafa, he became more and more kind and his body became stronger and stronger. However, in July 1999, the persecution of Falun Dafa began. Li Xinqi did not want to cooperate with the evil, to lie or renounce his belief in Dafa. So on July 22, 2001, the local police department arrested all four of his family members, including his wife Chen Shibi, daughter Li Tianrong, son Li Tianguo and himself, and illegally detained them in the Guangan District Detention Center. The police also ransacked his home and took away all valuables. During the over one-year detention period, Li Xinqi, who was 60 years old at the time, became more emaciated by the day. His whole body became swollen, and excreted a yellow bodily fluid. On April 18, 2002, Li Xinqi passed away. Unbelievably, even after his death the village and township government officials went to Li Xinqi's home to extort money.
The citizens from Fangping Township/Guangan District are very sympathetic to Li Xinqi and his family's suffering, and they are very angry at the vicious police and the thugs' base, cruel behavior. The villagers called for an immediate end to the unreasonable persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, demanded the release of the practitioners and sought harsh punishment for the murderers.
