(Clearwisdom.net) In October, 1999, Ms. Jiao Shufang and a fellow practitioner from Sihe Town, Yushu City, Jilin Province, went to Beijing to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa. In Tiananmen Square, they were detained by police, who called the Changchun Agency that later forcibly transported them back to Yushu.

The police tried to force Ms. Jiao to write a statement promising to give up the practice, but she did not cooperate. Her children were afraid of their mother being sent to a forced labor camp, so they paid around 8,000 yuan to the Security Department at the Yushu Police Station. At the time, Chen Xingguo was chief of the Security Department.

Ms. Jiao's television and washing machine were taken away by the police from the Sihe Police Station, and her 76 year-old mother-in-law had to pay 1,000 yuan to redeem them. Fearing the police would come to their home to harass them again, and unable to bear the tremendous pressure, the elder mother-in-law committed suicide.
