Seven Practitioners Persecuted to Death in Sichuan, Hebei and Heilongjiang Provinces
Ms. Deng Yufang, 60, an employee of the Panzhihua Steel Factory in Renhe District, Panzhihua City, Sichuan Province was illegally arrested by the police from the Renhe Police Substation. They imprisoned her in the Nanmusi Forced Labor Camp in Zizhong County, where she was injected and force-fed with drugs. This caused kidney damage, and her whole body swelled up. After she was released, she had to go to a hospital for treatment. There, national security agents from Renhe District often harassed her even though she was quite ill. She passed away on May 28, 2006.
Mr. Li Jinyu from Guojiazhuangzi Village, Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province started practicing Falun Gong in 1996. Before then, doctors had told him he had little time to live, and he was waiting to die in a hospital. After he began practicing Falun Dafa in 1996, he miraculously recovered. In the fall of 1999, he went to Beijing to validate Dafa. In the Dongying sector of Beijing, he was arrested by police and taken back to Zhaoyuan City for brainwashing at the police detention center. Later on, he was persecuted many times, causing great damage to his body and mind. He died on December 21, 2000.
Ms. Wang Guilan, 70, a practitioner who lived on Fifth Street, Zhuozhou City, Hebei Province, was arrested and taken to the Shuangta Police Station. Police officers from the station and the Shuangta Residence Committee participated in the arrest. Because she refused to give up practicing Falun Gong, they beat Ms. Wang and later transferred her to the Nanma Brainwashing Center to be "transformed." After they blackmailed her for approximately 3,000 yuan, they released her with her family member's guarantee that she would stop practicing. Even then, the authorities did not stop harassing and threatening her. Wang Guilan passed away in 2005.
Mr. Liang Yanjun and his wife Wang Shumin resided on Fifth Street, Zhuozhou City, Hebei Province. They both were steadfastly practiced Falun Gong. In 2001, officers from the Shuangta Police Station and the Residence Committee and national security agents from Renhe District arrested them. Mr. and Mrs. Liang were held and persecuted in a detention center. Because they refused to give up cultivation practice, they too were transferred to the Nanma Brainwashing Center for forced "transformation." After being threatened and harassed for a long time, their former illnesses reappeared, and Mr. and Mrs. Liang left this world in June 2005.
Ms. Wang Guiqin, 73, who lived in Baoan Village, Nongfeng District, Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province, started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998, and her daughter also practiced. Since July 20, 1999, Nongfeng District' police officers have harassed her family and arrested her daughter. They caused serious damage to her daughter's body and mind. She died in April 2004.
Ms. Han Wenfeng, 64, who resided in Nongfeng Village, Nongfeng District, Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province, started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. After she began the practice, illnesses she had for many years disappeared. Twice, she went to Beijing to appeal to the government to stop the persecution of Falun Gong. The first time she went was in February 2000. She was imprisoned in the Shuangcheng City Detention Center for one month and blackmailed for 2,000 yuan. The second time was in November 2001. The authorities arrested her and imprisoned her in the Shuangcheng Detention Center for five months. They released Ms. Han after she paid a 2,000 yuan ransom. Due to severe persecution, her previous illnesses relapsed. Ms. Han passed away in December 2005.
Mr. Chen Shoucai, 65, resided in Nongfeng Village, Nongfeng District, Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province. He started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998, and many of his illnesses disappeared. Once the Chinese Communist Party started persecuting Falun Gong, Party members frequently harassed him. Also, his daughter was imprisoned. Because of the extreme pressure that caused great damage to his body and mind, he died in May 2004.
