Mr. Xu Yuliang, 58, was a farmer from Xueli Village, Jiguanshan Town, Fengcheng City, Liaoning Province. He began practicing Falun Gong in March 1997, and his heart diseases from lung disorders were cured without treatment. On July 20, 1999, the lawless people from the town government ransacked his home, confiscated his books and forbid him from practicing Falun Gong. Because of the intimidation he lived under stress, and therefore, his illnesses recurred. He died in October 2000.
