Practitioner Ms. Tong Huilan, 70, Suffered an Unjust Death in January 2004

February 21, 2005 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Wuhan City, Hubei Province

(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Tong Huilan, a 70-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner in the Wuchang District in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, miraculously recovered from late-stage cancer after practicing Falun Gong.

After the persecution of Falun Gong began in July 1999, Ms. Tong went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong in November 2000. She was arrested, and the police beat her so badly that she suffered a concussion. Later in 2002, the perpetrators captured the elderly woman in order to brainwash her into renouncing Falun Gong and even confiscated her hard-earned savings of 2,000 yuan that she had accumulated over the years of collecting recyclables and selling them. Tong Huilan died an unjust death on January 20, 2004. The following is her story:

Ms. Tong Huilan was a late-stage cancer patient before she started practicing Falun Gong. The doctor told her that she could only live for another six months; however, after she started to practice Falun Gong, she miraculously recovered from her cancer. During her seven to eight years of Falun Gong practice, the elderly Tong Huilan's health has been great.

After July 20, 1999, when the persecution of Falun Dafa began in China, Tong Huilan persisted in her belief in "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." In November 2000, in order to clarify any misunderstandings that the government might have against Falun Gong practitioners, Ms. Tong went to Beijing to petition for Falun Gong. However, she was beaten up so badly by the Beijing police that she suffered a brain concussion. Her right thumb and index finger were also fractured.

In 2002, officers from the Jiyuqiao Police Station in Wuchang District, Wuhan City severely beat Tong Huilan. They dragged her eight floors down from her apartment and pushed her into a small car. They arrested her in violation of the Chinese Constitution and detained her in the Yangyuan Brainwashing Class. The authorities even confiscated the 2,000 yuan she has saved over the years of collecting recyclables and selling them. They threatened and tried to coerce the elderly woman into writing a "Guarantee Statement." They frequently harassed Tong Huilan and prohibited her from practicing the Falun Gong exercises. Ms. Tong eventually died an unjustified death on January 20, 2004.
