Mr. Fang Hongchi, about 60 years old, was a practitioner in Beijing. He learned Falun Gong in June 1997. In 2000 he went to appeal for justice for Falun Gong and clarified the truth. After being illegally incarcerated for three months, he left home in order to avoid further persecution and had to keep moving from one place to another. Now, it has been verified that Mr. Fang died in 2002 as a result of the persecution.
