Ms. Li Hongfang, in her 60's, was a Dafa practitioner from Zhaoqing, Guangdong Province. In April 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal on behalf of Falun Gong and was arrested. After she came back, she was illegally detained for 15 days and was fined 10,000 yuan. She died at the end of 2005. Before she died, government officials came to harass her and threaten her, trying to force her to write a guarantee to give up Falun Gong.
