(Clearwisdom.net) Dafa practitioner He Yuanchao is a native of Chengdu City, Sichuan Province. On May 15, 2002 police at the Kunming Railway Station arrested him without specific reason. Later, Kunming Railway Forced Labor Commission authorities sentenced him to a labor camp for one year and nine months. He is being detained at Division No.6 in the Yunnan Province No. 2 Forced Labor Camp.

He Yuanchao's sentence was solely based on his belief in Falun Gong. At the time of his sentence he was suffering from an injury. The labor camp not only forbade him treatment, but also forced him to perform hard labor. They threatened to punish him if he did not cooperate.

The labor camp hospital took an X-ray of He Yuanchao and found that his right arm had a compound fracture and required surgery, but the labor camp authorities denied him treatment, knowing full well that he faced a lifetime disability if he were not treated. When He Yuanchao complained that his right arm hurt and could not function normally, the camp ignored the symptom, saying they saw nothing wrong.

He Yuanchao held a hunger strike to protest the inhumane treatment. The labor camp had eight people pin him down and force-feed him.

Another practitioner named Li Xianzhe was also detained in the same place because he refused to renounce his belief in Falun Dafa.
