Ms. Yang Zhengbi Dies as a Result of Long-Term Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Yang Zhengbi, 54, lived in Dongxing District, Neijiang City, Sichuan Province. She started practicing and experiencing the wonders of Falun Dafa in August, 1996.
On July 20, 1999, when Jiang and his regime began persecuting Falun Gong, Ms. Yang went to Chengdu City, the provincial capital, to appeal for the reputation of Falun Dafa. She also went to Beijing to appeal in September 2000 with her fellow practitioners. She was arrested by agents of the Domestic Security Division of the Dongxing District Police Department, detained in the Dongxing District Detention Center, and sentenced to one year of forced labor. The camp rejected her due to her high blood pressure, and her term was changed to probation with ten thousand yuan of "guarantee" money extorted from her family.
In July 2001, Domestic Security Division Leader Huang Junzhong (male) led a group of officers and arrested Ms. Yang again. They detained her in the district detention center. They ransacked her home, took her Falun Dafa books, and transferred her to the Neijiang City Detention Center. They issued an arrest warrant after detaining her for one month and sentenced her to four years in prison. She was taken to the Yangmahe Prison located in Jianyang City and later transferred to the Longquayi Prison in western Sichuan Province. At the same time, her husband Mr. Qiu Yonglin (also a practitioner) was sentenced to three years in prison for appealing in Beijing and taken to Deyang Prison.
In 2005, Mr. Qiu Yonglin was arrested again by police from the Xilin Station in Dongxing District while passing out truth clarifying materials. They detained him in the Dongxing District Detention Center, brutally beat him, and then sentenced him to another year of forced labor in the Mianyang City Labor Camp. In order to rescue him, Ms. Yang commuted between Neijiang City and Mianyang City, clarifying the truth wherever she went. The guards in the Mianyang City Labor Camp did not allow her to see her husband.
On July 17, 2007, Ms. Yang was arrested by Yangliu Town police while passing out truth-clarifying materials. She was detained in Dongxing District Detention Center, and the Neijiang City Labor Camp CCP Committee sentenced her to 15 months of forced labor. She was taken to the Zizhong Labor Camp, but the camp had to reject her due to her high blood pressure.
When she returned home, the local police and neighborhood security came to her house five times to harass her between September and October 2007. They told Ms. Yang to get permission anytime she left the neighborhood.
For the past years under persecution, Ms. Yang was tortured in the prison, labor camp, and put in detention center many times. She could not even find peace in her home. This persecution severely hurt her mentally, physically, and financially. She died on November 6, 2007.
