Ms. Li Jiyun, 69, lived in Fenxi County of Shanxi Province. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1994. Her home was always a practice site. After the persecution of Falun Gong started in 1999, as she was persistent in practicing Falun Gong, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) agents detained her for a cumulative total of over two years. These freedom deprivations occurred on July 20, 1999, December 1999, February 2000 and October 2000. In December 2004, she was illegally arrested again and detained five times by the lawless local people, and was sent for one year of forced labor. The persecutors extorted money from her family. Over the past seven years, local criminals kept harassing and threatening her. She suffered from severe mental trauma, especially during her month-long unlawful detention in December 2004. Her mental endurance reached the extreme limit, and she was very much afraid of being persecuted again. She passed away on April 21, 2006, soon after she heard that the evil would further escalate the persecution.
Ms. Liu Fuqin, 66, was a resident of Mulan County, Heilongjiang Province.

Local police detained her at the police station. After staging a hunger strike for twenty days to resist the persecution she left, but the police extorted 3,000 yuan from her. In December 2000 she went again to Beijing to appeal. Police from Qinhuangdao City arrested her and then sent her to forced labor for one year. As she was seriously ill and the forced labor camp had refused to accept her, people from a local custody center further detained for over three months. This brought her to the brink of death. She was not released until paying an extortion sum of 1,000 yuan as a "guarantee deposit." After she was sent back home, her illnesses recurred due to the persecution and she passed away on March 18, 2006.
