(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Liao Youyuan, an employee of the Hengyang City Instrument and Meter Plant in Changsha City, Hunan Province, was illegally arrested on June 14, 2005, when clarifying the truth. He was sentenced to forced labor and was tortured to death at Xinkaipu Forced Labor Camp on December 18. The details await further investigation.

Liao Youyuan, 64 years old, began Dafa practice in 1996. He became very healthy after he started practicing Falun Dafa. On July 20, 1999 the persecution began, and Liao Youyuan remained firmly devoted to practicing Dafa.

During the 2001 Chinese New Year, Liao Youyuan was illegally held at the Hengyang City Custody Center for six months. He clarified the truth about Dafa to people after his release.

Someone betrayed Liao Youyuan on June 14, 2005, when he clarified the truth near the Jiangdong Nonferrous Metals Smelter. Officers from the Bajiaotang Police Station in the Hengyang City Police Department arrested him and took him to the Bajiaotang Police Station. The police searched Mr. Liao, and political head Hu Shouxian and others beat him. Close to evening, a group of evildoers led by police officer Hu Shouxian ransacked Liao Youyuan's home and sent him to the No. 2 Detention Center in Hengyang City. They threatened Liao Youyuan's family and demanded money from them. His family refused to give the police extortion money. The perpetrators sent Liao Youyuan to the Xinkaipu Forced Labor Camp in Changsha City on July 8, 2005, where Mr. Liao was tortured to death on December 18, 2005.

Due to the information blockade, the details surrounding his death are unclear. The camp authorities said that Liao Youyuan was ill and had an odor and so the inmates beat him.

According to a previous report on the Minghui/Clearwisdom website, all Dafa practitioners are forced to remove all clothing on arrival at the Xinkaipu Forced Labor Camp. Each practitioner is then isolated and monitored by three drug-addict inmates, handpicked by the guards. The three inmates follow the practitioner everywhere.
