On October 1, 2000 she traveled to Beijing to appeal, where she was arrested and sentenced to one year in prison. After her release from prison, she suffered constant harassment and threats from the local police department. Her family members, who had been misled by the Chinese Communist Party's propaganda, also threatened her. She passed away under these conditions in May of 2002.
