Mr. Yang Rong, 50, was a Falun Dafa practitioner from Xinfu District, Fushun City, Liaoning Province. He obtained the Fa at the end of 1996 and became healthy in both mind and body. He went to Beijing to validate Falun Dafa in October 1999 and was detained for fifteen days. He was arbitrarily detained again for two months in March 2001, and the authorities followed no legal procedures. In April 2002, he was sentenced to three years of forced labor for passing out truth clarifying materials. In May 2003, during his labor camp term, the lawless officials sentenced him to three and a half years in prison. He was released on medical parole in January 2005 because he contracted terminal hepatitis. In February 2005, he solemnly declared on the Minghui website that all his words and actions against Falun Dafa during his imprisonment were null and void. He died on March 24, 2005.
