(Minghui.org) It was recently confirmed by Minghui.org that a Liaoyang County, Liaoning Province, man has passed away after being bedridden for a decade.

Mr. Yu Fei, a mechanic, was sentenced to nine years in 2001 for practicing Falun Gong, a mind-body practice that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Because he refused to renounce his faith, he was tortured until he was unable to walk or talk. The prison authorities denied him medical parole and also demanded that his family cover the costs for his medical treatment, which they couldn’t afford to pay.

After five and a half years in prison, Mr. Yu was released, incapacitated. 

He never recovered and was bedridden for more than a decade. He passed away on January 18, 2019, at the age of 68.
