Persecution, Extortion and Death at the Hands of Labour Camp Officials

Suihua Forced Labour Camp, Heilongjiang Province
Yan Xiuzhong, male, 52 years old, was from Shuangxing Village, Dasizhan Township, Boli County, Heilongjiang Province. In March 2000, he was arrested and fined 2000 Yuan [Chinese currency, the average monthly income of urban areas is about 500 Yuan] for writing a letter to Li Guofu, the Deputy County Administrator, to clarify the truth of Falun Gong. In March 2001, he was taken away by police from home again and sent to the Suihua Forced Labour Camp. Physical examination records showed that he was in perfect health when he was sent to the labour camp. On October 20, 2001, Yan went on a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention. Yan died on October 29. Suihua Forced Labour Camp officials informed the local Public Security Department that Yan Xiuzhong had died of illness. The camp compensated his relatives 3000 Yuan for funeral affairs and cremated Yan’s body in Suihua City. However, that money was spent by the Dasizhan Township police when they brought Yan’s relatives to retrieve Yan’s ashes.
