Print  E-mail 


Qu Yao (male) was 14 years old. He lived with his parents in Liaoyang City, Liaoning Province. His father, Mr. Qu Yongjiu, was a salesman at Xinfeng Corporation in Liaoyang City.


At approximately 6a.m. on July 4, 2002, Mr. Qu Yongjiu left his house to buy breakfast for his son Qu Yao, but the police from the Liaoyang County Public Security Bureau forcefully arrested him. Five policemen then broke into Mr. Qu’s house. Qu Yao, was the only one at home. The police ransacked the house and arrested him. The police did not release the teenager until several hours later. He suffered severe mental stress from the incident.


The police arrested Qu Yao’s father to get information about his wife, Ms. Yao Mei, who had left home to escape police persecution because she practices Falun Gong. Currently, only Qu Yao is left at home, and he has no one to take care of him. He does not know how to cook and often goes hungry. At the time of his father’s arrest, he was preparing for his final exams. There was much stress from school. What he needed most was his parents’ care and support. Yet, he even had difficulty finding food to eat. His mother could not come home because she would be arrested if the police saw her.


The police from the Political Security Department in Liaoyang County Public Security Bureau sent Mr. Qu to the Shoushan Detention Center. He was ruthlessly beaten there, and, without any legal reason, sentenced to labor reeducation for two and a half years.
