Dafa practitioner Fan Huiying is sixty-six years old. She has a bachelor degree and was the assistant director of the political association in Qian'an City, Hebei Province. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1997. In January of 2001, she was sent to a brainwashing class and was detained there until the end of October. During that period, she was transferred back and forth from the brainwashing class to the detention center three times. She was handcuffed and chained, and beaten up by vicious policemen including Zhu, Hui Zhijiang and others. They also beat her hands with shoes. To protest the illegal detention, she went on a hunger strike. Nine days later, she became so weak that she was unable to care for herself. The detention center notified her family to take her home. Before she had completely recovered, she was repeatedly harassed and monitored by the police. At present, her ID card has been confiscated and she is not allowed to file the paperwork for retirement. In addition, they have not paid her salary since February of 2001.
