Mr. Cai Yun from Xinjiang Province Died in 2001 as a Result of Torture at the Changji Forced Labour Camp

Mr. Cai Yun was a Falun Gong practitioner from Changji City, Xinjiang Province. After the persecution of Falun Gong began on July 20, 1999, he and other practitioners wrote a letter of appeal to the central government. As a result, he was arrested and sentenced to two years in a forced labour camp. He was detained in Group One of the Changji Forced Labour Camp. Because he refused to give up his belief in Falun Gong, he was brutally tortured, suffering severe injuries to his kidneys and an extremely swollen abdomen. The labour camp did not want to take responsibility should he die, so he was released. Cai Yun passed away on September 29, 2001, at the age of 30. He is survived by his wife and a 3-year-old child.
