A Chinese woman was hospitalized and fell into a coma while in police custody and died—after surviving 13 years in forced labor camps and a hellish prison notorious for using torture methods against prisoners of conscience, according to

Jin Shunnu died on Oct. 10, in police custody after she was detained for talking to people about Falun Gong, a type of spiritual practice based on the principles of “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance,” which has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999. Minghui, a website dedicated to posting information about the persecution of Falun Gong, known as Falun Dafa, also said her body “was cremated on the same day without an autopsy, and the death certificate issued by the hospital said she died from a stroke.”

When her husband and daughter came to stay with her in the hospital, Jin never regained consciousness after reportedly slipping into a coma. It is not clear why she fell into a comatose state, according to Minghui.

Falun Gong practitioners, according to a Freedom House, are routinely subjected to beatings, torture, killings, and live organ harvesting for profit. According to report last month, an elderly Falun Gong practitioner in another Chinese province as beaten in prison and injected with “unknown drugs.”

Minghui noted that Jin’s entire family was imprisoned for practicing Falun Gong. “Jin was imprisoned between 2002 and 2015, her husband, Mr. Shen Shan, was serving an 11-year term for their shared faith. Their daughter, Ms. Shen Chunting, was also given three years of forced labor for practicing Falun Gong,” the report stated. “The family finally reunited in 2015, only to lose Ms. Jin three years later.”

While in prison, she was savagely beaten by guards and other inmates, had water poured over her body and shocked with electric batons, and deprived of sleep and use of the bathroom.

In one instance, according to Minghui, “Two inmates took off Ms. Jin’s underwear and stuffed it into her mouth. They then held her on the ground and stomped on her. Another inmate whipped her back with a clothing rack and a rubber club. Her back was covered in bruises, and she had difficulty breathing.”

“The guards rejected her request for medical treatment after sustaining the injuries, for fear their brutalities would be exposed.”

Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners

In a 2016 update on its report, the International Coalition to End Transplant Abuse in China stated that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is performing a far greater amount of transplants than officially claimed.

The CCP is namely targeting Falun Gong practitioners, but Uyghurs, Tibetans, and Christians have also been targeted for organ harvesting.

“If you do the arithmetic, that means that about 150 people daily in China are being killed for their organs. And there are no survivors in these operations,” former Canadian MP and secretary of state for Asia-Pacific David Kilgour said in May 2018.
