Mr. Wang Yuanqing worked for the livestock department of Chengdu City, Sichuan Province. His cancer disappeared after he started practicing Falun Gong in 1996. In December 2000, the local police arrested Mr. Wang while he was working, and forced him to give up his Falun Gong practice. After that, the local police and the officers from the livestock department often went to his home to harass him. Because of such huge pressure, and because he was prohibited from practicing, his cancer came back and he died in January 2004.
