Print  E-mail 

Ms. Xiao Guiying, female, from Yueyang City, Hunan Province. Yan Youhua, Ms. Xiao's husband, over 60 years old, was the former Treasurer of Yueyang City. He had several mistresses and had attempted to divorce his wife, but Ms. Xiao refused. After the persecution of Falun Gong started, his abuse of his wife intensified. In early 2002, Ms. Xiao was forced to leave home. Yan Youhua and his son colluded with the police and kidnapped Ms. Xiao from Changsha City, Hunan Province, her hometown. After they brought her back , they kept her tied to a tree. Later Yan Youhua sent her to a detention center, where she was held for over half a year. Afterwards, Yan Youhua and his son wanted to send her to a labor camp. However, she failed to pass the medical examination that the labor camp required. On the way back from the labor camp, Ms. Xiao managed to escape, but later she was arrested again. After she was released, Yan Youhua forcibly sent her to the Yueyang City Mental Hospital, where she was continuously tortured. She died in March 2003. Ms. Xiao's work unit claimed that she died of lung cancer. However, why would they send her to the mental hospital if she really had lung cancer?
