Practitioner Ms. Yang Xiuling from Zhoukou City in Henan Province is forty-nine years old. She was the family member of one of the staff members of the Shenqiu City Normal School.

In July 1999, Ms. Yang went Beijing twice to appeal and both times she was taken back and put into prison. Ms. Yang Liuling spent the lunar Chinese New Year twice in prison and suffered physical and mental tortures that are hard to endure. In October 2002, Ms. Yang Xiuling was clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa and was taken to the Zhoukou Detention Center where she was subjected to brainwashing.

After she was released, her husband was deceived by the evil lies and was frightened by the high-pressure terror tactics used by the authorities. In fear of being persecuted also, he divorced her.

On May 4, 2006, several police officers from the State Security Division of the Zhoukou City in Henan Province broke into Ms. Yang Xiuling’s home and arrested her. She was taken to the Zhoukou Detention Center and tortured.

Recently, the unlawful people formally arrested Ms. Yang Liuling and attempted to worsen the persecution. It is now summer with extremely high temperatures. Ms. Yang is being forced to carry out heavy slave labor daily in prison. Her elderly mother and her two children all need her care at home.
