Ms. Shen Chengxin from Fusong County, Jilin Province Persecuted To Death

August 22, 2006 |   By a Jilin Falun Dafa practitioner

(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Shen Chengxin from Fusong County, Jilin Province, was 66 years old and lived at the 24th Committee on Xishan Street, Lushuihe Town, Fusong County, Baishan City, Jilin Province. After she started to practice Falun Dafa, all of her diseases disappeared.

Following the events of July 20, 1999, Lushuihe Political and Judiciary Committee Secretary Zhou Kaide and police department chief Diao Tingren harassed Ms. Shen many times. They forced her to write and sign the "five statements" to renounce Falun Dafa, got her fingerprints, and told her to give up cultivation, among other things. Prior to the two National Assemblies (of the Congress and the Political Consultative Conference) in 2000, officials from the Xishan local police department took Ms. Shen to the town's police department and detained her for one night because she had participated in group Fa-study. She was released on the second day but only after her family had been forced to pay a "deposit." Afterwards she was "illegally imprisoned" and persecuted at brainwashing sessions conducted by the Xishan Street "political safety" committee and was monitored by committee director Wang Wanmei.

Around the time of the Mid-Autumn Festival in 2003, officers from the Xishan local police department went to Ms. Shen's home to confiscate her property and search for Dafa books, audiotapes, and other materials. She was again imprisoned at the police station for one night. Her family members paid 1,000 yuan to the town police for her release.

In late September 2003, Ms. Shen Chengxin was intercepted by police on the street. The police illegally searched her handbag and discovered Falun Gong-related materials. She was again taken to the town's police department. Deputy Chief Lu Hongyan personally interrogated and pummeled her. During the ransacking of her property, the police stole one pair of gold earrings, one gold ring and one gold necklace, which were birthday gifts she had received from her sons and daughters. They also stole all of her cash, which amounted to 200 yuan. Ms. Shen was imprisoned in Fusong County for a month and sentenced to forced labor. Her family members were forced to pay 2,000 yuan but were not given a receipt.

Because the Lushuihe Xishan police department and the town police department constantly persecuted and harassed her, all of Ms. Shen's family's savings were exhausted, and her body and mind were devastated. She was forced to scrape out a living by cultivating some unused land in the mountains. On June 15, 2005, Ms. Shen Chengxin suddenly lost consciousness and died.
