Ms. Zhang Fanglin, 44 years old, was a former teacher from Chengguan Elementary School, Hengshan Town, Huoshan County, Anhui Province. Her high blood pressure returned to normal after she began practicing Falun Gong. For five years she was a key target of persecution by Huoshan County police and officials. In 2000, she was transferred to the countryside to perform hard labor. She peacefully and lawfully appealed for Falun Gong. As a result, she was illegally detained for one month. She was then detained for one year in a labor camp, where she was brainwashed. Ms. Zhang sustained cruel persecution, both mentally and physically, and her high blood pressure returned. After getting out of the labor camp, she persisted in cultivation. Officials repeatedly harassed her and forced her to attend brainwashing classes. One day in 2004, a brainwashing class was held in her own home. Her husband, a policeman under enormous pressure from his supervisor, beat her until she became unconscious. On March 8, 2005, Wang Caiqiong, the school principal, made difficulties for her and forced her to attend another brainwashing class. Ms. Zhang Fanglin tried to reason with the principal. That afternoon, Ms. Zhang passed out, and on March 16 she passed away.
