(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Zheng Chaoshu, 57, was a retired middle school teacher in Da'an Township, Suining City, Sichuan Province. His many ailments were all cured after he began practicing Falun Dafa in 1996.
He shared his understandings with fellow practitioners in January 2000 and was later reported to the authorities. Officers from the township station detained him for eight days in Zhong District Detention Center. He was released after authorities extorted 2,000 yuan from him.
In August 2000, he was detained overnight in the township police station and had an additional 500 yuan extorted from him. The Zhong District Education Department threatened him in 2001 that if he still practiced Falun Dafa, they would stop paying his pension. His children were afraid that he would lose his pension, so they wrote the three statements for him behind his back. Mr. Zheng Chaoshu was very regretful after learning of this, and soon after had a stroke. He died on December 6, 2001.
Ms. Liu Renshu, 50, lived in Tian'gongmiao Community, Chuanshan District, Suining City, Sichuan Province. Her many illnesses disappeared after she began practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. She began to clarify the truth and pass out flyers once the persecution began.
In July 2000, police from Chuanshan Station ransacked her home, detained her for more than fifty days because they found a copy of the book Zhuan Falun, and extorted three thousand yuan from her. Later, police and lawless officials continually harassed her at home, threatened her, and caused huge mental and physical pressure. She died on January 2, 2003.
Ms. Song Huaiying, 34, was a practitioner from Dahuang Village, Yuankang Town, Linzhou City, Henan Province. She went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa when the persecution started in 1999. She escaped after being arrested. After returning home she was constantly harassed and threatened by local officials. As a result she died on June 29, 2004.
