Fifty-year-old Ms. Wen Zhiping lived in the Taipinnan residential area of Fuxin County, Liaoning Province. After she started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, she completely recovered from hypertension, which had troubled her for years. She knew from personal experience the preciousness of Falun Dafa. In November 1999, she went to Beijing with fellow practitioners to clarify the truth about Falun Gong, where she was illegally detained and fined. Her family was told that she wouldn't be released unless she wrote a guarantee statement. Ms. Wen refused. Later the police at Meihai Police Station forged a statement in her name and released her after her family paid 2,000 yuan. After that, her family members were afraid of being persecuted. They didn't understand Ms. Wen's practice and interfered with her. Ms. Wen continued to practice, but she was under extreme pressure. On March 19, 2003, she had a stroke and passed away.
