(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Liu Kexi, in her 50s, from Lucheng Township, Yidu City, Hubei Province, started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998. Her son, Deng Yong, who is in his 30s, also practices Falun Dafa. In May 2004, agents from the National Security Brigade of Yidu City stormed into Deng Yong’s home, arrested him, and searched for Falun Dafa materials. Shortly after, they also searched the home of his mother, Liu Kexi. Then the National Security Brigade agents, led by Su Xiaoping, conspired with the local public security bureau, the Procuratorate office, and the court of Yidu City to put Deng Yong on trial. The court sentenced him to three to four years of imprisonment. When she heard her son sentenced at the courthouse, Ms. Liu Kexi fainted and died three days later.

Ms. Yang Lihua, 58, is a retiree who had been a teacher at the Dalianhe Township Middle School, Yilan County, Heilongjiang Province. She started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. Her severe heart condition and rheumatism disappeared soon afterwards. In February 2000, she was practicing the Falun Dafa exercises in a public square and was arrested, detained for three days, and fined 300 yuan. During the spring of 2002, when she was distributing truth clarification materials near her son’s home in Harbin City, she was arrested and sent to a detention center. She walked out using righteous thoughts. However, she was forced into homelessness for over a year.

In 2003, she went back to the school where she had worked. Members of the county’s 610 Office and the local Education Commission forced her to write the three statements and withheld wages of 8000 yuan that was owed to her. The school authorities claimed that the money had been used for staff to look for her, however school officials did not provide any receipts, and the local police officers continued to harass her at home. She was under tremendous stress. She died on December 20, 2005.
