Most recent place of detention:
Ms. Sun Guilan, 51 years old, was a farmer who lived in Qingde Village, Yitong Town, Yitong County, Jilin Province. She formerly suffered from heart disease, a lung condition, bronchitis, and other ailments. All her illnesses were cured after she started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. After seeing the dramatic changes in Ms. Sun, one by one, her husband, son, daughter-in-law, four daughters and a son-in-law all became practitioners.
After July 1999, when Jiang's regime started persecuting Falun Gong in China, Ms. Sun Guilan and the whole family of ten went to Beijing to appeal, and were arrested one by one. Local policeman Fu Lijun did a body search on them and confiscated more than five thousand "yuan." The police then repeatedly harassed Sun Guilan at home. Ms. Sun was quite disturbed emotionally by the constant threats and harassment. The threats and fear caused her to become very ill and she became bedridden. When her youngest daughter Guo Liyan was arrested at home by her employer and the police on September 20, 1999, Ms. Sun Guilan could no longer endure it. She died on September 25, 1999
