Ms. Yang Xiuyun, 37, was a practitioner from Fushun City in Liaoning Province. After she started practicing Falun Gong in 1996, all of her illnesses disappeared. On July 16, 2003, personnel from politics and law committee and the police station came to her home and forced her into a vehicle. They arrested her and put her into the Fucheng District, Fushun City Brainwashing Center, where she was detained for 15 days. This brought on a serious illness, and on September 28, 2004, she passed away.
