Most recent place of detention:
Ms. Wang Jingfang was a Falun Gong practitioner from Depo Village, Beiliuzhi Town, Jing County, Hengshui City, Hebei Province. She was harassed by local police many times. In 2001, her two sons were arrested and detained for several months. Her younger son suffered from mental collapse due to the torture. Her older son went on a hunger strike and wasn't released until he was on the verge of death and his family had to pay several thousand yuan.
In August 2002, her older son was arrested again and sent to Hengshui Brainwashing Class, where he was beaten and abused. Later he jumped out of a second floor window to escape. At present, he is still going from place to place in order to avoid further persecution. The persecution of her two sons caused a great mental burden for Wang Jingfang. She passed away on May 29, 2004, at the age of 51.
