She was held there for 24 hours before being transferred to the No. 2 Detention Center in Beihai City, to be held for 15 days. She was arrested again in December 1999 and the police stole 600 yuan in cash from her. The officials ransacked her home another time and extorted 1,700 yuan from her family.

Officials from the Haicheng District Comprehensive Administration Office demanded 5,000 yuan from Wang Simeis family on October 11, 2000, but the family refused to pay the money.
