Mr. Yang Fujin was a Falun Gong practitioner from Yanji City, Jilin Province. His wife, Ms. Yin Fengqin, also a practitioner, died as a result of the persecution on January 29, 2010. Officials from the local 610 Office and police department still continued to pressure and intimidate him and he could find nowhere to seek justice. His practitioner daughter, Ms. Yang Lijuan, was persecuted until she developed a mental disorder and could not take care of her two young sons. Having no other alternative, he handed his grandsons to one of his relatives for adoption. Grief stricken, he died recently at the age of 62.
