(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Ye Zhanfen, in her 60s, was a Falun Dafa practitioner living in Qionglai City (under Chengdu City), Sichuan Province. She was the Qionglai City Valve Factory CCP secretary and the Union Chairman when she began cultivating Falun Dafa in 1996. Cultivation made her very healthy. She loved to help others and was very respected by the people around her.

Ms. Ye started clarifying the truth to people after the persecution started in 1999. In November 2000, she was taken into custody by the Linqiong Town Police Station for copying "truth-clarifying" materials. In the station, four to five police officers beat her cruelly, kicking her lower abdomen, electric-baton-shocking her head, and causing her to pass out due to an extreme headache. They tortured her for nine hours, resulting in her becoming incontinent and fracturing her left wrist. There was blood in her stool the entire time she was detained.

On June 5, 2001, she was sentenced to five years in prison and taken to Yangmahe Women's Prison in Jianyang City. She was tortured relentlessly both mentally and physically because she refused to accept the brainwashing. She had blood in her stool the entire time.

She was released in 2005, but local 610 Office agents still harassed her and she could not live in peace. She died after enduring the persecution for over eight years.
