Details Regarding Mr. Yang Jiaye's Death While in Custody in Guangxi Region
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Yang Jiaye, 41, lived in Lingshan County, Qinzhou City, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. He had a severe case of polio. He could not stand up, and was bedridden. After he started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, he was able to stand up and could move normally.
Mr. Yang went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa after the persecution started. In the spring of 2002, he was arrested and sentenced to two years of forced labor for passing out truth-clarifying materials. Because he was deprived of his right to study the Fa or do the Falun Gong exercises, his physical condition worsened and eventually he had to be released on medical parole. Since he was able to practice Falun Gong again upon returning home, he quickly recovered. Mr. Yang was able to walk out of his home to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa, and work and live normally.
On May 16, 2008, Mr. Yang rode his bike on the street with a sign saying "Falun Dafa is great" hanging on the front, and a loudspeaker playing Falun Gong songs. He was arrested and then released on the same night, but all of his belongings were confiscated.
Domestic Security Division Leaders Liang Yongshen and Fang Daoyang arrested Mr. Yang at his home at 8:30 a.m. on June 30, 2008. They had him sentenced to two years of forced labor the next day and took him to the Fourth Ward of the Nanning City First Labor Camp in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. He died on November 18, 2008, while detained in the Fourth Ward.
On the day of his death, Mr. Yang's older brother and younger sister both rushed to the labor camp to find out the cause. The camp administration and the Lingshan County CCP Political and Judiciary Committee personnel pressured his family, trying to force them to sign papers that would authorize immediate cremation without letting the family see his body. With strong resistance, the officials finally allowed the family to see Mr. Yang's body on the morning of November 19, then cremated it on November 21, 2008.
