(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Lang Fengxian, in her 60s, lived in the Gaojiayuan Neighborhood in Chaoyang District, Beijing. She used to have breast cancer, but she recovered after she started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. After July 20, 1999, she firmly held onto her faith in "Truthfulness-Compassion- Forbearance," was sentenced to forced labor by 610 Office agents, and her old sickness recurred. She was bailed out for medical parole.
Upon returned home, agents of the Party Jiuxianqiao Community (upper level of Gaojiayuan Neighborhood), the 610 Office, and Gaojiayuan Neighborhood 610 Office, and officers of Jiuxianqiao Police Station often harassed her by going to her home. They arrested her at the beginning of 2007, but the authorities with the Changying Detention Center in Chaoyang District rejected her because she failed the physical exam. She was released and allowed to go home.
From January to May 2008, Ms. Lang was arrested three times in only four months, but each time she was released due to her physical condition. She died in the middle of June 2008 during a time when local 610 Office agents were constantly harassing her at home.
