Dafa Practitioner Ye Fenglin Tortured to Death at the Zhongba Labor Camp in Guizhou Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Ye Fenglin, a 45-year-old man, used to work in Tuanjie Village Armed Force Department in Bijie City, Guizhou Province. At 7:30 a.m. on June 27, 2002, he died of torture while being held in Team Six of the Zhongba Labor Camp.
Ye Fenglin started to practice Falun Gong in 1996. At that time, he quit smoking and drinking and steadily improved his character. The village locals who knew him, all witnessed these positive changes.
In November 2000, Ye Fenglin was working when he was summoned by the local police to attend a so-called meeting. He was thus illegally arrested. While in detention, he was brutally beaten. In October 2001, he was sentenced to 3 years of forced labor education and sent to Zhongba Labor Camp in Guizhou Province.
In the labor camp, because Ye Fenglin firmly resisted the forced brainwashing and refused to give up cultivation in Falun Dafa, he was brutally beaten. At 7:30 a.m. on June 27, 2002, he died of torture in Team Six.
After learning of the death of Ye Fenglin, his family and members of his work unit rushed to the labor camp. Seeing that he died such a sudden death, they questioned the labor camp, "Why did such a healthy person die so suddenly in this labor camp?" Since the labor camp could not give any reasonable explanation of his death, they strongly requested an autopsy to find out the cause of his death. Under pressure from the villagers, the labor camp performed the autopsy and the results indicated that there was coagulated blood in his liver, one of his ribs was broken, and there was no food in his stomach. The medical doctor said the cause of his death was not clear.
Later, the labor camp and the relevant provincial departments bargained with Ye Fenglin's family and work place, and they reached a certain agreement. Ye's family and work unit signed a certificate agreeing to cremate Ye's body. Later they took Ye's ashes back home to be buried. Since Ye had a lot of friends, many people came to his funeral. People all said that it was the police that tortured such a good person to death.
