Mr. Yu Liye was 69 years old, a retired worker from the Third Mining Team of Liaoning Provincial Mining Bureau. After he started cultivating Falun Dafa in 1996, he volunteered to bring the exercise tape and cassette player to the group practice site every day. He was always there, regardless of the weather. His health improved, and his white hair turned black. After July 20, 1999, Mr. Yu was severely injured both mentally and physically due to the persecution. In order to give voice to the truth, he went to Beijing to appeal on behalf of Falun Gong in May 2001. He was detained in Chaoyang City's Shijiazi Labor Camp, and extorted out of more than one thousand yuan. After he was released, police from Linghe Substation came to his home and harassed him constantly. Influenced by the government lies and having been threatened with violence, his family tried to persuade him to give up his practice. Soon, his former illness came back, and he also developed bone cancer. He died on May 13, 2002.
