Ms. Zheng Chengkui was eighty years old and retired. She lived in Wujiaohua Dormitory, Wanlin County, Huaihua City, Hunan Province. In October 2000, Ms. Zheng went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa and was arrested and escorted back home. She was arrested again in 2002 for passing out truth clarification materials in Chouhuakou. The Wanlin County police raided her home, confiscated her personal property, and detained her for three months. The police continued harassing Ms. Zheng after her release. The authorities also ordered her children to confine their mother at home and force her to take unnecessary medicines. Ms. Zheng Chengkui passed away in May 2004, as a result of the relentless persecution.
