Ms. Yu Li, a Falun Gong practitioner in Dalian City, was arrested in 2001. She experienced gruesome torture in Dabei Prison and passed away in September 2005.
Ms. Yu Li, who is in her 60s, was a retired employee of the Harbor Bureau of Dalian City. She started to practice Falun Gong in 1995. She was strict with herself according to the standard of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" and achieved great changes both in mind and body. Later she volunteered to be an assistant at a practice site and did great work in spreading the Fa.
In October 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. After she returned to Dalian, someone reported her to the Dalian Police Department, and she later found information online that the police were looking for her.
To avoid arrest, she left Dalian and went to Lishun City, where she met Ms. Yu Fenghua from Fengcheng City. As reported on the Clearwisdom Website, Ms. Yu Fenghua was persecuted to death in Dabei Prison.
In May 2001, Ms. Yu Li went to see her sick mother in the Jinxhou District of Dalian City, where the police authorities had already prepared to "illegally arrest" her. They got in the door by using deception and took her to the Dalian Detention Center. Several months later, she was sentenced and put in Dabei Prison.
Dabei Prison is a living hell. The staff there used every conceivable cruel, crafty and covert means to try to force Ms. Yu to renounce Falun Dafa. They even beat her with steel rods covered with rubber, a torture that does not leave obvious wounds but can result in serious internal injuries.
The police hung Ms. Yu by her handcuffs and brutally beat her into a coma with a steel rod. To see if she was still alive, they took her down and poured boiling water on her, seriously burning her chest and back. These inhuman tortures in no way changed her belief in Dafa.
In October 2003, she was released on medical parole. As the result of the torture, she spit up blood on New Year's Eve 2004 and again in the fall of 2004. At the end of September 2005, she spit up large amounts of blood and died three days later.
