Eleven Falun Dafa Practitioners Die from Persecution in Hebei Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Xu Surong, 73, lived in Qing County, Hebei Province. After Jiang's political villains group started persecuting Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, Xu Surong was twice sent to a forced labor camp for long-term detention. Her husband was illegally detained three times, her daughter-in-law was abducted and detained many times, and her son was illegally sent to a forced labor camp. Her daughter lost sight in both eyes from stress, fear, and anguish at the persecution of her beloved ones.
During the past six years, Xu Surong endured tremendous pressure, and her condition declined. She passed away on April 20, 2005. Her family asked that her son, who was held at a forced labor camp, be allowed to go home so he could take care of the funeral arrangements. The Handan Labor Camp officials asked for a death certificate, but the Qing County 610 Office refused to stamp the certificate. The Hebei Province 610 Office intervened and didn't approve the temporary release, so her son didn't get to see her before she died.
Practitioner Ms. Yu Lei worked at the Qing County Material Bureau in Hebei Province. She recovered from all of her illnesses after she started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997. She went to Beijing twice to validate Dafa after the persecution began. She was illegally detained twice and tortured. She passed away in 2002.
