Ms. Yu Guoqing, a Falun Dafa practitioner from Yongji County, Jilin Province, was 53 years old. She was an office director for the Kouqian branch of the Bureau of China Water Conservancy and Electric Power. In 2000, she went to Beijing to validate the Fa. In October 2000, she was arrested by the Yongji County 610 office and Police Department, and sent to the Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp. The labor camp refused to take her due to her poor health. After she returned home, the 610 office and police from Yongji County Police Department continued to harass her. She was forced to leave home. On February 8, 2002 she was arrested by Jilin City Police Department and sentenced to eight years in jail. In May 2008, the Jilin Province Heizuizi Women's Prison released Ms. Yu, who was on the brink of death from persecution, on medical parole. She passed away on March 30, 2009.
