(Clearwisdom.net) Sixty-nine-year-old Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Yang Shucai was from Liangzhai Village in Henan Province.

Mr. Yang was arrested on the morning of March 6, 2009, by personnel from the Liudian Police Station and 610 Office of Kaifeng County. He was taken to the Kaifeng County Detention Center, as were a few other local practitioners who were arrested on the same day.

Mr. Yang was illegally detained for seven months. He was then sentenced to four years in prison and sent to the Xinmi County Prison in Zhengzhou. Mr. Yang's physical condition worsened while he was there, and he was released for medical treatment on September 29, 2010, and passed away 12 days later.

Xinmi County Prison is a provincial level prison. It has been used by the Henan Province 610 Office as a centralized facility to persecute male Falun Gong practitioners in Henan since the persecution began on July 20, 1999. Within the prison system is the "Education Ward," one of the worst, where they use brutal tactics in attempts to "transform" practitioners.

Mr. Sun Peijie, chief of the People's Political Affairs Office of Zhangpan Township, was sentenced to four years in prison. Mr. Sun was tortured in Xinmi County Prison until he was in critical condition. He was sent home in January 2005 and passed away on August 19, 2005.
