Ms. Ding Yajie, 50 years old, was from Fuyu County of Heilongjiang Province. Before the Spring Festival of 2000, she was taken to the brainwashing center in the county's Communist Party School. Because she insisted on practicing Falun Gong, she was sentenced to one year in a forced labor camp after the spring festival. She suffered heart problems while in detention. After 18 days, the county and 610 Office were notified to take her home. After she returned home, she continued to practice Falun Gong and soon her illness disappeared. Before the Spring Festival of 2001, she was again taken to the brainwashing center. During that time, her husband was also detained three times. After 2003, the local police came to her home many times to disturb and threaten her. That caused her heart problem to recur and she was hospitalized. Around March 31, 2005, the local police went to harass her again and she passed away on April 9, 2005.
