Ms. Cao Guiying, 66, was a practitioner from Huanggu Township, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. In 1999 and 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal and to clarify the truth. She was unlawfully arrested, and sentenced to three years in a forced labor camp. Ongoing persecution in the labor camp caused Ms. Cao to develop an illness, and she was released to a hospital on bail. She passed away in July 2001.
