Ms. Hu Guimin was a 66-year old Falun Dafa practitioner who lived in Puyang City, Henan Province. Since July 1999, the police frequently came to her home to harass her. They also ransacked her home. In April 2003, the persecutors harassed and threatened her 28 times. Ms. Hu was forced to leave her home to avoid further persecution. After suffering a stroke, she was taken to a hospital. The police came to the hospital and threatened her: "We know that you cannot move now. We would have arrested and sentenced you to forced labor had you not been sick." Hu's health continued to deteriorate and she died on June 18, 2003.
