Practitioner Ms. Yu Ruilan, 60, lived in Qiji Village, Xin'an Town, Zhengding County, Hebei Province. She was harassed multiple times for refusing to give up her cultivation. After the 2003 Chinese New Year, she was detained for two weeks in Zhengding County Detention Center by the county Chinese communist party (CCP) officials. She was incarcerated in a brainwashing center for one month in Zhengding County. Due to the long term harassment and mistreatment, Ms. Yu suffered high blood pressure, which severely damaged her health. Around October 1, 2005, the village security head, Zhang Qingyu (gender unknown), and town officials went to Ms. Yu Ruilan's home and took away her exercise tapes and Falun Dafa books. Ms. Yu was deeply disturbed by this unfair treatment and became very sick. She died on November 5, 2005.
