Falun Gong Practitioners Xu Xiuzhi, Cui Xueyi and Wang Zongrong from Hebei Province Died in 2004 as a Result of Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Xu Xiuzhi, 48, was a Falun Gong practitioner from Gaobeidian City, Hebei Province. In 2000, she went to the city government to appeal for Falun Gong and was sentenced to two years of forced labor. After her term expired, she was released; however, police headed by Zhao Kejun and Zhao Jun from the city police department and the 610 Office kept coming to her home to harass her. In order to avoid further persecution, she left home and went back to her parents' home in northeast China. The police didn't want to give up, and they went to northeast China three times attempting to catch her. In June 2003, the police arrested Xu Xiuzhi. After taking her back to Hebei Province, the police persecuted her in a brainwashing class for over 50 days before releasing her. Afterwards, she was forced to report to the local police station once every week. The police station director even abused her sexually. Under the tremendous pressure, Ms. Xu became incontinent and her lower body was paralyzed. She passed away in June 2004.
