Mr. Sun Jiulong, 76, lived in Taihe Town, Sheqi County, Henan Province. Before he began Falun Gong cultivation practice he had genetic tracheitis. Sometimes the symptoms would be so bad that he couldn't sleep or even walk. He started practicing Falun Gong in February 1999, and after practicing for only seven days, his disease disappeared. On July 20, 1999, Jiang's regime began their persecution of Falun Gong, and all of his family members went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa. Later, police often harassed and threatened him at his home, and they extorted 7000 yuan from him. Later, police deceived his wife, and put her into a brainwashing class. The persecutors threatened him many times, and hurt him greatly. He died suddenly in September 2002.
