Print  E-mail 


Ms. Xiao Guying, female, resident of Yueyang City, Hunan Province. Her husband, Yan Youhua, who had several mistresses, had attempted to divorce Ms. Xiao, but she refused. After the persecution of Falun Gong started in July 1999, in order not to be implicated, he intensified the abuse of Ms. Xiao. 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. However, she failed to pass the medical examination required by the labor camp. On the way back from the labor camp, Ms. Xiao managed to escape. Later she was arrested again. After she was released, 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.
