Mr. Sun Yubin, 46, has been arrested and detained repeatedly since July 20, 1999, spending a total of seven years in confinement. He has been subjected to torture and brainwashing many times and has developed a mental disorder. His son has had to drop out of school to help make ends meet.

He was sentenced to three years of forced labor and taken to the Yingkou City Forced Labor Camp, where he was persecuted to the point where he developed a mental disorder. He was released more than one year later. After he returned home, he could not recognize his family members. When he was arrested, his daughter was only a few months old and his son a young child. Mr. Sun's father took in the son, while Mr. Sun's wife, who was unemployed, raised their daughter alone.
After Mr. Sun recovered, he went to visit his father and son. At the railway station in Jiamusi City, he told people about the persecution.
