Falun Gong practitioner Han Ye, was a resident of Xiaotaizi Village, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. He had suffered from a blood disorder since he was young. He started to practice Falun Gong while he was hospitalized in Shenyang City. After practicing Falun Gong, he became quite healthy. In 1999, when Jiang's regime began the persecution of Falun Gong, he told of the drastic improvement in his health in order to testify to the goodness of Falun Gong. He went many times to appeal to the Liaoning provincial government and to peacefully appeal in Beijing. He was arrested many times. His peaceful environment for studying the Fa and practicing the Falun Gong exercises was destroyed. To avoid harassment and arrest, he was forced to leave his home and become homeless. Han Ye's health deteriorated and his old health problems reappeared. On January 23, 2003, he passed away.
