In 2001, Shan Yuqin was arrested again by the Dalianhe Town Police Department and sentenced to two years of 'education' through forced labor. While she was detained in Wanjia Labor Camp, she was brutally beaten by police and shocked with electric batons. The police cuffed her hands and hung her up. The cuffs cut deep into her flesh and the scars on her wrists never subsided. Fourteen of her teeth were knocked out. Due to the long-term torture, her health became poorer and poorer. Half of her body was paralyzed and she couldn't take care of herself. In the end, she suffered a mental collapse. Her mood swung very quickly. One minute she was crying, the next minute she was laughing. Only under this situation did the labor camp advise the Dalianhe Town Police Department to ask her family to pick her up. However, the town government party secretary Mao Yongfeng and the Dalianhe Town Police Department chief refused to stamp the documents needed for Shan's release. Later Mao Yongfeng went to the labor camp to do some business, the camp authorities asked if they could release Shan on medical parole. Mao said, "Isn't she still alive? As long as she still has one breath left, keep her here." As a result, Shan was detained for six additional months, during which time her condition worsened severely. On December 30, 2003, the Yinlan County "610 Office" and Shan's family picked her up. After she returned home, her health kept deteriorating and she remained bedridden. On August 20, 2004, she passed away.
Author's note: because Shan remained mentally unstable after she returned home, we were unable to learn more detailed information about how she was tortured in the labor camp and the names of those responsible for her persecution.
