Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Chen Kui was 71 years old and a former CCP Kangping County Committee member. He had a cerebral hemorrhage, but was cured after practicing Falun Dafa in 1995. After the persecution of Falun Gong started, his former work unit head Chen Gao and others often came to his home to intimidate and harass him, threatening him with disciplinary actions from the Party and withholding his pension. Mr. Chen refused to write a guarantee statement giving up practicing Falun Dafa, even under great pressure. His son, a non-practitioner, wrote one for him, which hurt him deeply. His old illness eventually came back, and he suffered a stroke. Mr. Chen died on February 19, 2001.
