Falun Gong Practitioners Liang Sulan and Jia Shuqiu in Heishan County, Liaoning Province Died Under the Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Liang Sulan, 57, was a resident of Dahushan Town in Heishan County, Liaoning Province. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1996. Before this, she suffered from severe heart disease. After practicing Falun Gong, Ms. Liang regained her health very quickly. In July 2001, when she was clarifying the truth about Falun Gong, the police arrested her together with her son and her daughter-in-law. They were severely persecuted. After being illegally detained for several months, Ms. Liang's son could not withstand the tortures and suffered a mental collapse. The Heishan County Police Department extorted tens of thousands of yuan from the family before releasing him. Lawless agents from the Dahushan Town Police Department frequently harassed Ms. Liang Sulan. Because her son was persecuted to the point of mental trauma, and because of the other pressures, Liang Sulan could not take it any longer. She suffered a brain hemorrhage during the 2005 Chinese Lunar New Year and passed away on March 8, 2006.
Ms. Jia Shuqiu, 35, was a resident of Zhaojia Village in Heishan County, Liaoning Province. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1999. After that, she dropped all her past bad habits and also was more respectful and considerate towards her parents. In March 2000, Ms. Jia participated in a group Falun Gong practice. She and her husband were arrested and taken to the Heishan Detention Center. After being illegally detained for one month, they were released after the Heishan County Police Department extorted tens of thousands of yuan from them. In August 2000, Jia Shuqiu suffered from a brain hemorrhage but she regained consciousness after fifteen days. One month later, she recovered well enough that she could take care of herself and the necessary daily activities. In July 2001, Ms. Jia's husband was arrested for the second time and was illegally detained for over a month. He was released after being extorted out of more money. Because her husband had been tortured, within one month after his return, he underwent stomach surgery and spent almost ten thousand yuan. The persecution resulted in immense pressure on the family's financial, health and mental states. Jia Shuqiu could not withstand all these tribulations, and passed away in July 2002.
