Four Elderly Practitioners from Shanxi, Hebei, Jilin and Anhui Provinces Pass Away Due to Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Practitioner Mr. Liu Mingzhong, 68, worked in the Duerping Mine of the Xishan Coal and Electricity Company in the Wanbailin District of Taiyuan City in Shanxi Province. In late 2000, Mr. Liu Mingzhong went to Beijing to clarify the truth and validate the Fa. He was illegally arrested by the lawless police from the local police station and was taken to the Xindian Forced Labor Camp of Taiyuan City, where he was brutally tortured by the guards. All of his clothes were stripped off and cold water was poured on him from head to toe. He was forced to sleep on the cold floor. The guards also used the toilet brush to brush water onto his body. After several days of torture, Liu Mingzhong became critically ill and was released to seek medical care. After Mr. Liu returned home, he was constantly harassed by the police. Mr. Liu Mingzhong's spirit was greatly injured by the severe persecution, and he finally passed away, with sadness, in August 2005.
Ms. Liu Shaohua, 73, was a Falun Dafa practitioner from Langfang City in Hebei Province. She learned Falun Dafa in 1998. Before she started practicing Falun Dafa, she had heart disease, diabetes and hypertension. After Ms. Liu started practicing Falun Dafa, all of these diseases disappeared. Her face had a healthy glow and her mind and body were healthy. After the persecution of Falun Dafa started on July 20, 1999, the unlawful people from her work unit went to harass Ms. Liu at home, forced her to write the guarantee statement and also confiscated her identity card. From 2003 to 2004, the 610 Office sent people from her work unit to harass Liu Shaohua again and again at home. In mid-October 2005, when they went to threaten her once more at home, the elderly lady's mind and heart were distraught and her heart disease suddenly recurred. Liu Shaohua passed away on December 9, 2005, under pressure and grief.
Practitioner Ms. Liang Longfen, 66, lived in Jilin City in Jilin Province. She started to practice Falun Dafa in the fall of 1998. She recovered from heart disease and dizziness. She also organized a Fa study group in her house. When Liang Longfen was experiencing the happiest period of her life, Jiang Zemin's evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regime started to persecute Falun Dafa. On July 20, 1999, Ms. Liang went to the Provincial Government of Changchun City to clarify the truth of Falun Dafa. After she returned, police officers from the Changchun Road Police Station in the Chuanying District of Jilin City frequently went to harass her at home and also confiscated all of her Falun Dafa books. Because her family is affiliated with the army, personnel from the army also went to interfere with Ms. Liang. All of this pressure caused her to suffer a stroke. Ms. Liang Longfen passed away with sadness in early October 2005.
Practitioner Ms. Ma Fengying, 83, lived in Datianji Town (now called Xihu Town), Fuyang City in Anhui Province. Because her second daughter practices Falun Dafa and was illegally detained numerous times, Ms. Ma was severely depressed and therefore became sick. Medical treatments were ineffective and finally Ms. Ma Fengying passed away on the night of August 25, 2005. Ms. Ma Fengying's second daughter, practitioner Ms. Ni Ziyun, started practicing Falun Dafa in late 1996. Ms. Ma was influenced by her daughter and also started to practice Falun Dafa in 1998. Because Ms. Ma was able to participate in the group Fa study and group Falun Dafa exercises, her physical body underwent great changes. After the persecution of Falun Dafa started on July 20, 1999, Ms. Ni Ziyun went to Beijing to appeal for justice and clarify the truth of Falun Dafa. She was illegally arrested in late September 2000 and detained and tortured for six months. In January 2004, Ms. Ni was again illegally sentenced to forced labor for one year. During that period of time, Ms. Ni Ziyun was constantly harassed at home by the police. Because of this, Ms. Ma also lost the environment for cultivation practice. Ms. Ma was sad and upset. She could not eat and could not sleep at night. Her mind and heart were greatly injured and illnesses started to return to her body. She eventually passed away, in sorrow.
