Mr. Su and Mrs. Su, retired employees from Handan City Transportation Bureau in Hebei Province, died after being persecuted many times. Mr. Su, 63 years of age, used to have back problems and suffered extreme pain. He tried to seek medical treatment at many hospitals in vain. He happily obtained Falun Dafa at the beginning of 1997. Shortly after he began to practice Falun Dafa, his illness disappeared. His wife was a school teacher of No. 12 Middle School in Handan City. She began to practice Falun Dafa about the same time and became free of her illnesses without medical treatment. As a result, she saved a lot of medical expenses for the nation. The couple was very diligent in practicing Falun Dafa. Mr. Su volunteered to be a contact person for the exercise site at the stadium. He went there as a volunteer every morning and night with a tape recorder to teach the exercises and to promote Falun Dafa. New Falun Dafa practitioners increased tremendously.
The couple went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa on April 25, 1999. Lawless authorities went to their house to harass them several days before July 20, 1999. They confiscated all their Falun Dafa books. They arrested Mr. Su, taking him to the local police station, detaining and persecuting him. He was deprived of sleep and his health deteriorated. His voice became hoarse and he spoke with difficulty. The local police officers arrested him when Mr. Su distributed truth clarifying materials in his hometown, Qui County, in 2000. He suffered severely under the persecution and became very weak that he had difficulty managing himself. The police were afraid to be held responsible for his death so they sent him home.
Later, Mr. and Mrs. Su were frequently harassed and intimidated by the authorities. They could not live in peace. Mr. Su died on October 10, 2003. However, the authorities did not leave his wife alone as she was in anguish. Mrs. Su died as a result of the persecution.
