(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Liu Yongfang was a Falun Gong practitioner from Xingcheng City, Liaoning Province. She used to suffer from tuberculosis and psoriasis. When her psoriasis got very serious, she lost all of her hair and she had to wear a wig. After she began to practice Falun Gong in 1996, her illnesses all disappeared and she grew a full head of hair again. After the persecution of Falun Gong began in 1999, Ms. Liu went to Beijing twice in 2001 to appeal for Falun Gong. Both times she was arrested and sent to Masanjia Labor Camp in Liaoning Province to be persecuted. She was released when she became seriously ill because of the torture she received there.

At the end of 2003, Liu Yongfang was arrested by officers from the Wenquan Police Station for clarifying the truth to people. The police later released her. Under the tremendous pressure from the police, her old illness of tuberculosis recurred. Even when Liu Yongfang was very ill, the police still attempted to arrest her, but were firmly rejected by her and her family. Soon afterwards, Ms. Liu's health deteriorated quickly. She passed away in the spring of 2004 despite medical treatment.

Former Wenquan Police Station director, Yang Dehai (currently director of Gucheng Police Station), made an all-out effort to persecute Falun Gong while in office. He and his accomplices Zhou Zhenxing and others applied a special torture to practitioners. They twisted practitioners' arms behind their backs and tied them with nylon ropes. Then they inserted a wooden stick under the practitioner's armpits and placed both ends of the stick on a high table. The practitioner was thus lifted up by the stick, with their feet barely touching the ground. The whole weight of their body was painfully sustained by their armpits. Normally, an ordinary person would not be able to endure such torture for more than 20 minutes. But practitioners were often tortured like this for about 2 hours. Each time, after practitioners were taken down from this torture, their wrists still felt numb after two months.
