(Clearwisdom.net) Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhou Chengyu was born on September 9, 1946. She was a library assistant at the Yuzhou University in Chongqing City.
Zhou Chengyu went to the Chongqing railway station to travel to Beijing to appeal for Dafa, which is a right granted to her by the Chinese Constitution. She was subsequently arrested and sent to a brainwashing class. Since she refused to give up her beliefs, she was sent to the Maojiashan Forced Labor Camp in Jiangbei District, Chongqing City on February 9, 2001 by the police department in Shapingba District.
Zhou Chengyu refused to renounce her belief at the Forced Labor Camp, as well. She stated to her persecutors: "It is absolutely impossible for me to be transformed." She was brutally tortured by policewoman Yang Ming (ID number: 5032015). As a result, she suffered cuts and bruises over her entire body. Yang Ming insisted that her injuries came from scabies and that it was infectious. She forced her to apply a topical medicine, but Zhou Chengyu firmly refused to cooperate. Yang Ming lashed out by ordering drug addicts Xie Guiping, He Xiaoping, Liu Chengling, Nie Juan, Shen Ling and Wang Suxiao to force-feed her a large dose of medicine every day. As a result, her abdomen became more swollen and harder each day. The pain became unbearable, but Yang Ming would not let up on her persecution.
At midnight on Sept. 28, 2004, Zhou Chengyu's complexion was pale and she was very weak. The inmate on duty discovered her abnormal condition and reported it to Yang Ming immediately. He proclaimed that Zhou Chengyu was dying. Yang ordered drug addicts Liu Chengling and Wang Xiaosu to drag her out of her cell. Zhou Chengyu held onto the metal bed frame and firmly refused to cooperate. The two could not remove her, so they went to ask Yang for instructions. Yang Ming instructed them to forcibly drag her out. At the cell door, Zhou Chengyu requested Yang to allow another fellow practitioner to accompany her. Yang flatly refused. Directed by the policewoman, the two drug addicts pulled Zhou Chengyu out. Ms. Zhou was not seen alive again. She was only 55.
