Most recent place of detention:
Mr. Li Tingrong, 82 years old, and Ms. Wang Suzhen, 77 years old, were residents of Balinzuo Qi, Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia. They both had suffered from many illnesses, but fully recovered after practicing Falun Gong.
Since July 20, 1999, the local authorities frequently went to their home to harass them. They illegally searched their home for Falun Gong books, forced them to write a guarantee statement to give up practicing Falun Gong, and further intimidated them by forcing them to monitor each other.
After their three daughters were sent to forced labor camps for practicing Falun Gong, they were gravely concerned and missed their daughters very much. Such heavy mental burdens and the persecution caused the recurrence of the cancer that Wang Suzhen had previously suffered. She died on December 25, 2002.
After Wang Suzhen passed away, the police again went to harass the family. They interrogated the weak and ill Mr. Li Tingrong and forced to him to tell the whereabouts of a daughter who had escaped from captivity. Due to the long term and frequent harassment and threats, Li Tingrong died on February 21, 2004.
