Xiao Guiying Abused by Her Husband for Her Belief and Tortured to Death in a Mental Hospital  
Print  E-mail 

Ms. Xiao Guiying was a resident of Yueyang City, Hunan Province. Before she began to practice Falun Gong in 1996, she had suffered for years from osteophytosis and other diseases. Soon after she took up the practice of Falun Gong, all of her illnesses went away.

Ms. Xiaoís husband, Yan Youhua, was the former Treasurer of Yueyang City. Because Ms. Xiao refused to accept bribes after beginning to practice Falun Gong, Yan Youhua was very hostile towards Falun Gong and wrote some articles to slander it. Pressured by her husband, Ms. Xiao reluctantly gave up practicing Falun Gong. Her illnesses soon returned, and she became paralyzed. After the persecution of Falun Gong started in July 1999, Ms. Xiao made up her mind to start practicing Falun Gong again. Soon after, she was able to walk around with ease.

Yan Youhua, who had several mistresses, attempted to divorce Ms. Xiao, but she refused. After the persecution of Falun Gong began, in order to avoid being implicated, he intensified his abuse toward her. In early 2002, Ms. Xiao was forced to leave home.

Yan Youhua and his son colluded with the police and kidnapped Ms. Xiao in Changsha City, her hometown. After they took her back home, they kept her tied to a tree. Later, Yan Youhua sent her to the Yueyang City Rongjiawan Detention Center, where she was held for over half a year. Afterwards, Yan Youhua and his son wanted to have her sent to a forced labor camp, but she failed to pass the campís medical examination. Ms. Xiao managed to escape on the way back from the labor camp, but was later arrested again. After her release, Yan Youhua placed her against her will in the Yueyang City Mental Hospital, where she suffered various tortures from which she passed away in March 2003.
