Mr. Jia Fengzhao, 79 years old, was a resident of Hezhai Village in Fangzhai Township, Guantao County, Hebei Province. His whole family practices Falun Gong. After he started to practice Falun Gong in 1998, he recovered from hemiplegia. He studied the books of Falun Gong, practiced the exercises and sent forth righteous thoughts. After the persecution started on July 20, 1999, the police came many times to his house to harass him and confiscate his belongs. They extorted almost 10,000 Yuan from him. In October 2003, several of his sons went into exile to avoid the persecution. Mr. Jia was both shocked and frightened, with no one to take care of him. On February 24, 2004, he had a relapse of his old illnesses and passed away.
