Ms. Wu Yuyun, in her 60s, was a retired teacher from Jiangmen City First Middle School of Guangdong Province. On April 29, 2001, she was arrested and sent to a brainwashing class. The class was supposed to last three months; however, since Ms. Wu refused to give up her belief in Falun Gong, she was held in the class for three additional months. After six months of detention, the authorities had to release her, although they failed to get her to renounce Falun Gong. On June 1, 2002, Ms. Wu was again arrested and sent to another brainwashing class. After one month, she returned home without giving up her belief in Falun Gong.
On August 14, 2003, Ms. Wu was again arrested. This time she was sent to a brainwashing class held by the provincial government. Her family members were not allowed to visit her.
After being repeatedly arrested and subjected to brainwashing, Ms. Wu's health deteriorated and she passed away in September 2004.
