Most recent place of detention:
Before she started to practice Falun Gong, practitioner Wang Suqin was suffering from an incurable form of cancer. Her doctors told her that she had at most two more years to live. After she began to practice Falun Gong, however, her health improved rapidly and her cancer was cured without any medical intervention. In the next five years, she was not only in perfect health, but her appearance also became more and more youthful. Since July 22nd of 1999, she had gone to Beijing several times to appeal for Falun Gong. She kept on telling every single person she knew how good Falun Gong had been to her.
In April 2001, Wang Suqin was sitting at home quietly meditating for more than an hour when several policemen suddenly broke into her house. They told her that they were going to take her away and force her to attend a "transformation class." Their unexpected entrance startled the old lady so much that she began to shake uncontrollably. Seeing how ill she looked, the policemen decided not to take her away, but they still placed tight surveillance around her 24-hours a day. She was not allowed to go out at all. The police would not even let her go out to do some grocery shopping. They kept calling her and telling her, "As soon as your health has improved, we are going to take you away to attend the 'transformation class.' If you are still ill, then you need to go to the hospital. They forcefully hooked her up to an IV and would not allow her to perform the Falun Gong exercises or to study the Fa. The police went to her home numerous times trying to force her to write a pledge promising to give up Falun Gong, but she kept turning them down. Several days later, the poor old lady passed away.
