(Minghui.org) A Shimen County resident died barely one month after she was sentenced to three years in prison for refusing to renounce Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline being persecuted by the Chinese communist regime.

Ms. Zhu Guilin, 53, had been repeatedly detained for her faith since the persecution began in 1999. Her husband divorced her under pressure, and her employer terminated her job.

Ms. Zhu’s latest arrest took place in late July 2017, when she was seized while grocery shopping. Police drove her to the local detention center the next day, but they had to release her on bail when her required medical examination indicated unusually high blood pressure. Instead, they posted two agents outside her house to keep a close eye on her. Ten days later, the local court sentenced her to three years in prison.

As her blood pressure remained high, she was allowed a delay in serving her sentence. However, the agents remained outside her house.

Ms. Zhu’s condition kept worsening. She had a stroke and passed away on August 31.
