(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Zhang Meilian, about 50 years old, was a retired teacher from Jiangxi Province Water and Electricity Engineering Staff College. She went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong after July 20, 1999, but was arrested and taken back to the local police station. She suffered a mental collapse due to the persecution and later died.

Ms. Zhou Shuqing, 66 years old, was a retired worker from Changchunling Town, Songyuan City, Jilin Province. She had several illnesses before she practiced Falun Gong. After beginning the practice, all her illnesses vanished and she enjoyed both physical and mental health.

Since July 20, 1999, the local police often searched her home, threatened, extorted money from her and harassed her, which made her unable to practice the exercises as usual. Her health deteriorated, returning to her past state. Even at that, the police still kept harassing her and extorting money from her. They claimed that they no longer had funding to arrest Dafa practitioners and forced her to give them money; otherwise they would detain her. Faced with such increased severe threats and tension, she could no longer endure it. Her illnesses recurred and she died on February 6, 2005.

Ms. Zhou Qichun, 75 years old, was a retired accountant from the Tanji Factory in Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province. She obtained Dafa in 1996. After that, the high blood pressure and heart disease she had suffered from for many years disappeared very quickly. After July 20th, 1999, personnel from the local street administration office, the police station and neighborhood committee went to her home and forcibly took away her Dafa books and threatened her not to practice Falun Gong any more. This led to the rapid deterioration of her health and her past illnesses recurred. Later, during a time when she was having her illness treated in Hebei Province Chemistry Geology Research Institute, the authorities went to her home many times to harass and threaten her. She died on July 15, 2000 in great stress.
