[Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province]
In July 2000, a male practitioner, Yan, from Yangchun County, Guangdong Province, went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. Yan along with his mother, older sister and 8-month-old nephew, refused to report their names and address to the authorities, so they were all sent back to the Shahe Penitentiary in Guangzhou City. At that time, the Shahe Penitentiary held dozens of practitioners, including many of the practitioners who attended the large-scale exercise practice in June 2000 in Guangzhou City. In the penitentiary, Falun Dafa practitioners were exposed to inhuman treatment and subjected to abominable living conditions. In December 2000, many practitioners in the penitentiary held a hunger strike. Practitioner Yan, however, was sent into the Baiyun District Mental Hospital in Guangzhou City, where he was persecuted and ultimately tortured to death.
Last December, Clearwisdom.net reported that the Shahe Penitentiary mistreated elderly people and infants. According to the practitioners who have been released from the penitentiary, the elderly person mentioned in that report was very likely the mother of practitioner Yan, and the baby and the mother were likely his nephew and sister.
