Ms. Zhang Shuling, 66 years old, from Daliang Town, Wuqing District, Tianjin City, was completely cured of Meniere's syndrome and all other conditions, including a lack of blood supply to the heart and serious motion sickness after she began practicing Falun Gong.
After July 20, 1999, eleven people from the criminal police team, Daliang Town government, and the police substation came to her home to harass and threaten her. They took away Teacher's photo, and tried to force her to write a Guarantee Statement. Thereafter, they harassed her many times.
In the spring of 2000, personnel from the Daliang Town Government and the police substation came to her home and took her to the police substation. She was forbidden do the exercises and they beat her on the head. They detained her for the whole morning.
At noon on May 21, 2002, after Zhang Shuling went home from visiting friends, two policemen named Wei and Cong Richeng were waiting for her. Without producing any legal document, Cong Richeng body searched her, accusing her of distributing the truth-clarifying materials.

The police took her to the police substation and lied to her, telling her that she could go home after a little while.

However, the police did not care for her mother-in-law's life and simply took Zhang Shuling away.
Upon arriving at the police substation, the police handcuffed Zhang Shuling from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to an iron pole. At noon, when it was very hot, Zhang Shuling was seriously overheated. That night, she was sent to the Wuqing District Labor Camp and held there for over 30 days.
