Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Li Wanyun from Gongzhuling City, Jilin Province, was born on September 8, 1962. He was a guard at Xingye Prison in Changchun City, Jilin Province. He began to practice Falun Dafa in October 1997 in Changchun City. Because of his dedication to his job and honest personality, he was honored as an excellent guard several times.
After the persecution against Falun Dafa began on July 20, 1999, Mr. Li Wanyun went to Beijing to appeal and clarify the truth. He was arrested by police in Beijing in October and was detained for 15 days after being brought back by police from the Erdao District Police Department in Changchun. During this illegal detention, and because of his firm belief in Falun Dafa, he was discharged from his employment by the CCP officer at his workplace.
In the spring of 2000, when Mr. Li Wanyun went out to clarify truth, he was sent to forced labor for a year in Heizuizi Labor Camp in Changchun. He was then transferred to the notorious Fenjin Labor Camp and was continually tortured. In the labor camp, Mr. Li Wanyun was tortured and his whole body was covered with scabies and running sores. He was unable to put on any clothing. He was released in November 2000.
In 2002, because he still firmly believed in Falun Dafa, he was sent to forced labor for 3 years. He was severely tortured by the guards in Chaoyanggou Labor Camp in Changchun City. This torture weakened his body and caused osteomyelitis. He was on the verge of death and was released for medical treatment.
After he returned home, Mr. Wanyun's body was very weak, and he was completely unable to work or function in normal life activities.
Before his second forced labor term, police from the local station in Lingxi District in Gongzhuling City illegally searched his home. They confiscated one bank deposit book, more than 10,000 yuan in savings, more than 4,000 yuan in cash, and several valuable articles, including a small radio. His family members have gone to the police department several times to seek for the return of the extorted money and articles, but the officers from the police department have only admitted that they took about 12,000 yuan. They returned only 6,000 yuan in cash to his family, while another several thousand yuan have not been returned.
On August 3, 2006, Mr. Li Wanyun, who was seriously ill because of the severe torture he suffered from the guards, had no money to treat his illnesses and passed away.
