For firmly refusing to give up his faith in Falun Dafa, Senior Doctor Yang Yongshou from Yingshan County, Nanchong City, Sichuan Province was troubled multiple times by the government's suppression of Falun Dafa. At the end of September 2002, perpetrators from the Yingshan County "610 Office" (1) put Doctor Yang under close surveillance, and withheld his salary. He died while in their custody and as a direct result of the persecution in December 2003.
