Mr. Wang Xincan, sixty-four year old, worked at the Weifang City Hanting area cotton oil refinery factory in Shandong Province. After starting to practice Falun Gong in July of 1997, he became healthy and contented. After July 20, 1999, his wife went to Beijing to appeal to the government and validate Dafa a number of times. As a result, the local security office and the 610 Office repeatedly harassed and threatened him. Within a few years, they confiscated large sums of money and much of their personal property. They lived in constant fear. Unable to withstand the unrelenting pressure, Mr. Wang's old ailments recurred, and he passed away on April 25, 2004.
