Ms. Li Shulin used to work in Zhuolu Coal Mine in Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province. She had been cultivating Falun Dafa for many years and was in perfect physical health. In May 2002 she was illegally arrested by the party vice secretary and the police station chief of the coal mine, and sent to a brainwashing class conducted by her employer. The violence she suffered, combined with the dark, damp environment of the brainwashing class, caused blood to appear in her urine. Her husband, who did not practice, forbade her from cultivating after her release. Eventually one of her kidneys failed and she was forced to have an operation, from which she never recovered. She passed away in August 2004 at the age of 40.
