Ms. Wang Fengqin, 62, was a retiree from Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. Ms. Wang had gone to Beijing twice to appeal on behalf of Falun Gong and to spread the truth about the persecution. She was arrested several times, sent to labor camps, and forced to attend brainwashing classes. During her final detention, Ms. Wang became extremely weak as a result of the torture, and she had to be released on parole. She died during July 2005.
