Seriously Ill Son Passes Away After Mother Is Sentenced to Forced Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) Fan Guang was a student from Shulan Street, Shulan City, Jilin Province. His father was a coal miner who had lost his life in an accident many years ago. He and his mother Wang Pengying depended on each other for their lives. Their only source of income was Ms. Wang's modest salary. In the days leading up to the 16th People's Congress in November of 2002, Ms. Wang and six other Falun Gong practitioners were illegally detained by Chief Zhao Zhenguo and others from the Shulan Street police station. After the 16th People's Congress was over, Ms. Wang was sentenced to a year of forced labor after refusing to pay off the police to obtain her release. Concerned about her son's living expenses, Ms. Wang asked policeman Li Hai to direct her income to her son, and he agreed. However, the authorities soon cut off her income.
At that time, the coal mine was going bankrupt and many coal miners were losing their jobs. For Fan Guang, who had just left school, it was very difficult to find a job. Without any means of support, he suffered hunger and cold and deeply missed his mother. He became very sick.
After a year and a month in the labor camp, Ms. Wang Pengying came home to find her son was dying. Fan Guang's heart and stomach were very weak. He couldn't eat anything because he had been very ill and malnourished for a long time. Ms. Wang took him to see many doctors, but it was too late. On April 10, 2004, Fan Guang died. His body was so emaciated and pale that the staff of the crematorium was moved to tears for him.
Another young life was thereby lost as a result of the persecution of Falun Gong.
