Mr. Pang Hai, 46, was a farmer of Wanquan County of Hebei Province. In Dec. 2000, when he and his wife Ms. Zhou Xiumei went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong, the police arrested them. They were sent back to Wanquan County and detained for two months. Under the detention they suffered brutal torture. The authorities confiscated a lot of Falun Dafa books, a motorcycle, and 2,400 yuan. After they were released, the police frequently harassed and threatened them. They were suffering great mental pressure. Additionally, they also suffered economic pressure because of the money that was confiscated. Placed under great duress, Mr. Pang's old disease (leukemia) recurred. He passed away in June of 2002.
