Ms. Tan Xiuna, 37 years old, was a resident of Fuyu County, Heilongjiang Province. Because of her firm belief in Falun Gong, the police frequently harassed her. They took her twice to a brainwashing center and ransacked her home three times. Her mother was unlawfully detained two times at a detention center, and then sentenced to two years of forced labor. Tan Xiuna suffered severe mental harm. The illnesses she used to suffer recurred and she died in January of 2005.
