Most recent place of detention:
Mr. Chen Yongting, 73 years old, was from Huludao City in Liaoning Province. He started to practice Falun Dafa in 1995. Because of Falun Dafa, his long term sickness was cured, and both his mind and body were very healthy. Nonetheless, since July 20, 1999, when the Chinese Communist Party began to groundlessly persecute Falun Gong, the party authorities constantly went to his house to harass him at all hours, day or night. They forced him to write a Guarantee Statement and arrested him. Even his son, daughter-in-law, daughter, and other family members were illegally detained, sent to labor camps and brainwashing centers, and forced to become homeless many times. Mr. Chen suffered both mentally and physically. His son was sent to a forced labor camp, and the authorities refused to release him after his time was up. Mr. Chen went to the forced labor camp twice, seriously reprimanded the authorities, and clarified the truth to them. However, the authorities still continually went to their house to arrest them. His white hair had turned black and his spirit was hale and hearty after he practiced Falun Dafa. But because of the suffering and mental devastation perpetrated by the authorities, Mr. Chen Yongting passed away on November 20, 2004.
