Ms. Liu Xin, 40 years old, was a teacher at the Dasizhan Town Middle School. On November 22, 1999, former Political Security Section chief Sun Chengyi arrested Ms. Liu while she was clarifying truth to the county police department. She asked them not to persecute good people who practice Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance. She was sent to the county detention center and was locked up for 45 days after being fined 4,000 yuan*. Because Ms. Liu never gave up cultivation, she was arrested at her home by Tasizhan Town police on Feburary 21, 2000 and was sent to the county detention center. While she was in the detention center, she was traumatized both physically and mentally. Her whole body swelled up and she was very close to death. Under strong protest from her family (it was said that her husband paid Sun Chengyi several thousand yuan), she was released to go home. After returning home, she was continuously harassed by her workplace and the local police station. She passed away on August 23, 2001.
