Most recent place of detention:
Grandmother Geng's household was frequently harassed, as much as several times a week. The community office, the security office, the state security agency, the police department branch, the local 610 Office in Jiawang District, and the local police station all sent people to harass them. They ransacked Geng's home numerous times. Grandmother Geng, after her children were arrested one after the other, went to the 610 Office to ask for her children's release. Each time she was either kept outside the door or stopped by the local government officials and policemen. The lonely grandmother had to endure the persecution and the economic pressure all by herself. She had suffered from the persecution of her sons, daughter, daughters-in-law and other family members, the ransacking of her home, harassment and threats. Alone, subjected to a state terror by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the grandmother finally collapsed and passed away in March 2005.
