(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Tian Shuqin, 64 years old, was from Dalian City, Liaoning Province. She used to suffer from many kinds of diseases. After she began practicing Falun Gong in 1996, she regained her health. Ms. Tian was illegally imprisoned and persecuted in Dalian Detention Center and Dalian Forced Labor Camp four times since July 20, 1999. Once when she was sent to Masanjia Forced Labor Camp, the labor camp administration refused to take her in because she was extremely weak. After she went home, members from the community center and the local police often harassed Ms. Tian at home. They tried to force her to write the so-called "four statements." During the six years of evil persecution, Tian Shuqin suffered a great deal physically and mentally because of the persecution. She suffered because of her persistence in practicing Falun Gong. Ms. Tian Shuqin died on November 5, 2005.

She was held and tortured in a detention center for a month, and had to pay a fine of 5,000 yuan. At the end of 2000, she went to Beijing to clarify the truth and was arrested again. While in the local detention center, Ms. Xie showed symptoms of illnesses. With a strong request from her family members, she was released after paying a fine of 3,000 yuan.
