Ms. Ji Yongfang, 85 years old, was a resident of Xinchengzi Village, Xinchengzi Town in Miyun County, Beijing. Before practicing Falun Gong, Ms. Ji suffered from various kinds of illnesses and was critically ill on several occasions. After she started to practice Falun Gong in 1996, all of her illnesses disappeared. In March 2000, when she was practicing the Falun Gong exercises at home, personnel from the local police station forcibly took her away and persecuted her. After she was released, she had a relapse of her old illnesses. She passed away in May 2001.
