Practitioner Mr. Yu Jianhua Disappeared in 2001

Mr. Yu Jianhua, 63 years of age, is a Falun Dafa practitioner from Qiting Township, Macheng City in Hubei Province. Local police have illegally arrested him several times since July 20, 1999. They deprived him of food for three days, stripped him, and hung him up and beat him. The last time, in December 2000, he was arrested and detained in the Macheng City First Detention Center. Five months later the police extorted 2000 yuan from his family after the Shizishan Forced Labor Camp refused to accept him for health reasons. After he returned home, the local police frequently went there to harass him. Under such huge pressure, Yu Jianhua had to leave home on August 23, 2001. No one currently knows his whereabouts.
