Ms. Yang Baozhen of Qian'an Township in Jilin Province Died from Persecution

Ms. Yang Baozhen, 55 years old, was a retired employee of Dabusu Department Store, Qian'an Township, Jilin Province. She started her practice of Falun Gong in 1998 and gained great health benefits.

Since the persecution began on July the 20th 1999, the local police have harassed and threatened her many times. On December the 17th 2003, Shao Yanbo of Qian'an Township Police Department, Ming Yaoxue of the Third Police Station and others illegally ransacked Yang's home and arrested her.

Yang was later sentenced to a forced labour camp for one year. During her labour camp detention, Yang showed heart disease symptoms and was released on bail for treatment.

Yang was under close surveillance and was harassed after her release. She was forced to leave home and went from place to place to escape further persecution. As a result, Yang suffered greatly physically and mentally and passed away on November 8, 2004.
