Ms. Hu Shuying, 61 years old, was from Wuhan City, Hubei Province. After July 20, 1999, the police and officials from her neighborhood committee frequently threatened her. In January 2002, Shuiguohu Police Station officers took her to the Yangyuan Brainwashing Center. She was detained for three months. After her family member wrote a guarantee statement for her, the local 610 Office agreed to let her go home. Ms. Hu, however, refused to go home when she learned that her family member had written a guarantee statement. The next day, after her family member told her that there was no mention of Falun Gong in the guarantee statement, she was willing to go home. She continued to practice Falun Gong, but due to the pressure from the persecution, she had a stroke in October 2003 and died the following month.
