Case Description:
Hu Youliang, male, 48 years old, was a resident of Xishui County, Hubei Province. He started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996, whereupon his physical and mental health improved tremendously. Many people around him witnessed this improvement. But since the evil persecution started on July 20, 1999, he and his family have never had a single peaceful day.

To clear the reputation of Dafa, Hu Youliang had been both to the Provincial Government and Beijing to appeal for Dafa, and he had openly joined group practice.

He had been arrested and tortured many times, but his determination to practice and safeguard Dafa was never shaken ( reported his story before). In November of 2000, he was forced to leave home to avoid being illegally arrested. The police from Xishui County tried to find him everywhere, making it impossible for him to return home. While away from home, he helped produce truth-clarifying materials and provided them to many areas where people were eager to learn the truth of Falun Dafa. In December 2001, he was illegally arrested in Shaoyang City of Hunan Province and brutally tortured in prison. To resist the persecution, he went on a hunger strike for over 20 days. On January 18, 2002, the police saw that he was in a life-threatening state, and as they were afraid of taking legal responsibility, they sent him back to his home in Xishui County. Despite his life-threatening condition, the local police there still held him in the detention center and kept torturing him until he died on January 23, 2002.
