Mrs. Ma, 83, was a practitioner in Nigou Village, Lianhua Town, Shulan City, Jilin Province. After she started practicing Falun Gong in 1996, her health was restored. After July 20, 1999, because her third daughter and son-in-law persisted in practicing Falun Gong, they were repeatedly harassed, monitored, and arrested. Local police extorted money from them. Ms. Ma lived in constant fear. On November 20, 2001, she passed away.
