Hu Mingzhi - 胡铭智
(Minghui.org) Mr. Hu Mingzhi and his wife, Ms. Cao Zengfen, residents of Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province, were both targeted for refusing to renounce Falun Gong.
Mr. Hu's employer, Shijiazhuang Construction Equipment Factory, put him on probation in December 1999, five months after the persecution of Falun Gong began. Hua Pengzhu, Party Secretary of the factory, decided to terminate Mr. Hu in October 2000 and asked his manager, Gao Yuqing, to verbally notify him without given any written notice.
Mr. Hu was arrested four times, and he and his wife made a living by doing odd jobs.
Mr. Hu developed symptoms in his heart, liver, and stomach in December 2016 and died days later, on December 15.
