Ms. Zhang Guiqin, 68 years old, was a retired employee from Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province. In the end of June 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal to the government, and was illegally detained at Shuangcheng Detention Center. Her company fined her 3,000 yuan. At that time, due to practicing Falun Dafa, her son was sentenced to 3 years in forced labor camp, and her daughter was detained at Shuangcheng City Detention Center for practicing Dafa. Her daughter-in-law was forced to become destitute and homeless due to the persecution, and has left two children at home, with nobody else to take care of them but Zhang. Ms. Zhang was under great pressure from her responsibilities as well as the persecution. Consequently, on August 26, 2001, she passed away.
