Ms. He Maofen is about 60 years old. She began practicing Falun Gong in 1997. Her illnesses all vanished after she started the practice. Tragically, Jiang Zemin's regime started persecuting Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. He Maofen persisted in cultivating Falun Gong.

Because she clarified the truth about the persecution, Ms. He was brutally persecuted. She was illegally arrested, tortured, fined, and subjected to brainwashing. Her family members were also harassed.

He Maofen was illegally arrested on November 10, 2004, when she clarified the truth in her town. Her home was then searched and she was sent to a detention center. The inhuman detention center authorities denied her food for nine days. Later, one of her relatives paid 5,000 yuan to the detention center. He Maofen was later released.

On December 17, He Maofen was arrested again. The next day, she was sent to the Linyi Brainwashing Center. She was also arrested on March 30, 2005, for distributing truth clarifying materials. Recently, Ms. He has been in the Yishui Detention. Yishui District practitioner Zhou Chengfu has also been held at that detention center.
