Print  E-mail 




Mr. Yu Yongquan, male, 45, worked in the Daqing City No. 2 Rice Mill in Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province. On May 11, 2002, police from the Ranghulu District Police Station and Chuangxin Police Station abducted Mr. Yu and sent him to the Ranghulu District Detention Center because he was making Falun Gong materials. On September 22, 2002, without notifying family members, the Ranghulu District Court sentenced Mr. Yu to ten years in jail. He was then detained in the Hongweixing Jail in Daqing City. During his detention, he suffered various forms of torture, and his family was not allowed to visit him to prevent the torture from being exposed.


On March 8, 2003, Mr. Yu was sent to the jail hospital for emergency treatment because he had been tortured to the verge of death. When Mr. Yus wife received a notice and rushed to the hospital, she found that Mr. Yu was already unconscious and near death. His wife held his head and felt that his skull was injured. At around 1:00 p.m. on March 8, 2003, Mr. Yu died from the persecution he suffered in Hongweixing Jail.
