Case Description:
Yao Sanzhong, male, 34 years old, was a teacher at the School of Art in Luohe City, Henan Province. He held a bachelor's degree. Because he firmly cultivated Dafa, he was sentenced to 3 years of forced labor by the Luohe City "610 Office" (an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems) and sent to the Xuchang Forced Labor Camp in Henan Province to be detained. As he firmly refused to give up his belief in Dafa, he was brutally tortured by the evil police there until he was on the verge of death. In order to avoid responsibility, at the end of December 2002, the labor camp had some people carry him away and dump him on the side of a road in another city. Later, his family heard of this and sent him to a hospital for emergency treatment for about a month, at the cost of several thousand Yuan. However, Mr. Yao still passed away in mid January of 2003 in spite of the rescue efforts.
