A Disabled Person and His Family in Huaiyang, Henan Province, Brutally Persecuted

Mr. Yang Gui (also called Yang Dezhi) is disabled. He and his family in Dadongying Village, Doumen Township, Huaiyang County, Henan Province, have been persecuted again and again by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) over the last nine years because they persist in their belief in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance". Yang Gui and his brother, Yang Chao, were sentenced and are still being held in forced labour camps. His sister, Yang Liu, was arrested by the police and beaten. His uncle, Jian Yongjun, was sentenced. Both of his parents died.

Mr. Yang Gui was born in 1962. When he was a baby, he contracted a serious illness. Because his family was too poor to afford proper treatment, his legs became paralysed. He crawled on the ground all the time and his knees were always bloody. When he was young, he moved around with the support of a stool. When he grew older, he made a pair of crutches out of sticks to help him walk. When Yang Gui became an adult, he also suffered from chronic enteritis, a hernia, and tinnitus. His sister, Yang Liu, once suffered from serious tracheitis and could not be cured for a long time. Her husband passed away in 1997, and she had to go live with her two children.

In 1996, Mr. Yang's family became Falun Gong practitioners. He became a healthy man and lived on his own. He made a tricycle that he could drive by hand and did odd jobs, such as copying keys and shoe making, on the streets of Xiangcheng City. Ms. Yang Liu's diseases also disappeared after learning Falun Gong.

In July 1999, the CCP began the brutal persecution of Falun Dafa. Yang Gui distributed leaflets exposing the persecution of Falun Gong to people in his home town. He was arrested many times in Xiangcheng City and held in the detention centre. His crutches were taken away and he had to crawl to buy food and go to the restroom. In November 2006, he was arrested for the fourth time. In order to ingratiate themselves with Mao Chaofeng, head of the CCP in Zhoukou City, people in the public security organizations, the procuratorate, and the court sentenced Yang Gui to four years without producing any legal evidence. He was sent to Zhengzhou Prison.

In May 2001, Li Xizhi and Yan Min from Doumen Police Station arrested Ms. Yang Liu. Li Xizhi slapped her mouth until Ms. Yang's head spun, her teeth were loosened (she soon lost four of them), and her mouth and face were swollen. She was handcuffed to a pillar, and Li Xizhi designated two policemen to beat her buttocks with bamboo sticks. She was beaten until she lost control of her bowels. Her trousers were ripped and the muscles of her buttocks festered. Two policemen stomped on her feet and legs, bruising and lacerating her legs, ankles, and the tops of her feet. They kicked her legs at the same time in opposite directions. She fainted immediately. The next day the police took her to the detention centre, where she was detained for ten months. Jailer Wang Peidong designated prisoners to put extra large shackles on her, even though she had already been injured, and tortured her by pulling the shackles.

When Yang Gui and his sister were detained, their father ran around seeking their release and borrowed money to pay the fines. He had money extorted from him many times and became exhausted both mentally and physically. He died in December 2001.

His younger brother, Yang Chao, was arrested many times and became homeless to keep from being picked up again. In the spring of 2004, Mr. Yang Chao was arrested again and sentenced to seven years imprisonment.

Yang Gui's uncle, Jian Yongjun, also practises Falun Gong. On July 1st, 2007, a group of police arrested him and sentenced him to four years imprisonment. He is now in Huaiyang Detention Centre.

Yang Gui's mother, Jian Junlan, who was about 70 years old, died in December 2007 after being severely attacked many times.
