(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Yan Fuqin, a Falun Gong practitioner from Tianjin who was arrested and sentenced to forced labor in September of 2004, died one year later from the forced labor in Tianjin City.

Ms. Yan, 56 years old, lived in the Liulin Building, Apartment #29, Hexi District, Tianjin City. When she was posting truth clarification materials on September 28, 2004 in Zhujiang Garden with two other fellow practitioners, she was reported to police and was arrested. Ms. Yan was soon sentenced to forced labor in the Second Team, Banqiao Woman's Forced Labor Camp of Tianjin City. The living conditions were terrible in the labor camp, and only very little water was provide for washing or showering. Ms. Yan suffered from scabies all over her body. Even under such poor health conditions, she was still forced to do hard labor until she developed late-stage breast cancer. Ms. Yan was released in July 2005 for medical care. After painful surgery, Yan Fuqin died on the morning of September 4, 2005.

In the short two months before her death, Ms. Yan still continuously experienced harassment and threats by the staff of the forced labor camp, the local police station, and the neighborhood committee.

Banqiao Woman's Forced Labor Center is an evil center in Tianjin City to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. Thousands of practitioners have been persecuted there, and dozens were tortured until they became injured, disabled, mentally disordered, and some were even killed
