After the Chinese Communist Party began persecuting Dafa in 1999, Dafa practitioner Ouyang Youhua, from the town of Chengguan in Guiyang County, Hunan Province, was persecuted by officials from the Guiyang 610 Office, the Guiyang National Security Department and the Public Security Sub-bureau of Guiyang Baoshan Ore. Ouyang Youhua suffered illegal imprisonment, torture and forced labor. She was monitored, threatened and fined. Her daughter was detained for 15 days, and her husband, Li Jinbao, was illegally sentenced to 3 years in a forced labor camp in 2002. Ouyang Youhua's mental and physical health plummeted under the long-term persecution. She passed away after suffering a sudden stroke on June 9, 2005.
