Ms. Wang Xianfeng, 40, was detained for a month and fined 2000 yuan for going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong in November 1999. In June 2000, the lawless authorities found a Falun Dafa book in her home. She was therefore detained for seven days and fined 520 yuan. Due to long-term intimidation, harassment and extortion by the local police, she lived in a very stressful environment. She passed away on November 30, 2002.
