(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Chen Lijuan from Chenzhou City, Hunan Province went to Beijing to appeal when she was a student in the Finance Department of Hunan Province Finance Institute. She was expelled from the school due to her firm belief and extorted. Under extreme pressure from the persecution, she suffered a mental collapse and died on November 11, 2004.

Ms. Chen Lijuan , 24 years old, lived at 91 Zhongshanbei Street, Chenzhou City, Hunan Province. She started cultivating Falun Dafa in September 1997. After she graduated from the Chenzhou City Third High School in 1998, she was doing part-time work for the Chenzhou City Construction Bank. In August 1999, due to her excellent performance, her boss talked to her mother and encouraged her to enter college while still working part-time at the bank. She then enrolled in the Finance Department of the Hunan Province Finance Institute.

On February 6, 2000, when Ms. Chen went to Beijing to validate Falun Dafa, she was arrested and detained for 29 days at Luoshiling Detention Center in Chenzhou City. The bank deducted 1700 yuan from her salary to pay for the expenses of local police who went to Beijing to arrest her. After she was released from detention, her school expelled her, and the bank fired her from her part-time job for refusing to sign a guarantee statement of giving up cultivating Falun Gong. The officers in the police station stated that they intended to ruin practitioners financially and eliminate them physically.

Under such cruel persecution, Ms. Chen became disoriented and had to check into a mental hospital three times from July 2000 to May 2003. When she was in the mental hospital, she became paralyzed by the treatment . She died on November 11, 2004.

Ms. Chen Lijuan's mother Xiang Huaixiang is 55 years old and an employee of the Archive Department of Chenzhou City Construction Bank. She was laid off twice, detained once, and had to pay a fine of 12,000 yuan because of practicing Falun Dafa. She lost her only child Chen Lijuan and has been closely monitored since July 20, 1999.
