Mr. Yin Sirong

His term was extended for ten days without any legal procedures. He was scheduled to be released on May 10, 2011.

Mr. Yin's family went with their lawyer to the Xinjin Brainwashing Center on August 3, 2011. They requested a family visit and Mr. Yin Sirong's release. The brainwashing center personnel didn't grant the visit, saying that they didn't have a permit. Mr. Yin's daughter called her father's name outside of the building and Mr. Yin answered. The brainwashing center personnel finally let her see her father. Mr. Yin's daughter sought to take her father home, but to no avail.

Mr. Yin's daughter asked the brainwashing center personnel to show the legal documentation for Mr. Yin's extended detention. Yin Shunyao, head of the brainwashing center said, “You are not allowed to see certain things,” then, “It's impossible to show you.” He also threatened that he could put Mr. Yin's wife and daughter into the brainwashing center as well.
