Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Dong Cuifang, a graduate from Hebei Province Medical University, had obtained an additional Masters degree (see photo 1), and later worked at a hospital in Beijing. This outstanding doctor was tortured to death at the Daxing Female Jail in Beijing on March 19, 2003 (this has been reported numerous times on Clearwisdom.net). Her fiancée, Falun Dafa practitioner Shen Wenjie (29 year old university graduate from Xingtang in Hebei) is a pilot who worked at the Beijing Capital Airport. He started to practice in 1996, and was illegally arrested together with his fiancée while clarifying the truth on December 26, 2001. They were jailed for one year in the Shunyi Detention Center in Beijing, where they endured inhumane tortures. On March 11, 2003 Dong Cuifang was transferred to the Beijing Daxing Female Jail and Shen Wenjie was transferred to a forced labor camp in Beijing's Daxing district. Eight days later, Dong Cuifang was tortured to death by three female police officers. Regarding Shen Wenjie's situation, the Chinese authorities have tightened the information blockade, and we only know from insiders that he is currently jailed at a forced labor camp in Beijing's Daxing district.

Shen Wenjie is a farmer's son, and like Dong Cuifang, he was a good student with good character, and was praised by his teachers. He used his skills and talent to gain acceptance into a university in Beijing in August 1995. In 1997, the Beijing Capital Airport went to all the universities in search of potential pilots. After passing many tests, Shen was one of the few chosen among thousands of university students, and his skills were considered the best among the group that was chosen. His work unit sent him to the United States for further training and he quickly became an outstanding pilot (please refer to photo 2). However, the ten-plus American professors and advisors who helped to train him could not imagine what things this outstanding Chinese pilot would have to go through in China, nor could they imagine that his fiancée would be murdered.

When practitioners were unfairly arrested in 1999, they both contacted fellow practitioners to appeal in Beijing. On April 25th, they bought water and food for out of state practitioners. On July 20, 1999 when tens of thousands of Falun Dafa practitioners were arrested in Beijing and brought to the sports stadium by the truckloads, they once again spent a lot of money to deliver everyday items to practitioners through various means.

Because Shen Wenjie participated in the appeals on April 25 and July 20, under the Jiang's system of punishment, his work unit forced him to choose between his work and cultivation. In the end, Shen Wenjie was forced to give up his rewarding work.

During the second half of 2000, both were forced to leave their jobs in Beijing. They traveled everywhere to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa to people, in order to save them. They went to villages as well as cities. Wherever they went, they brought the truth of Falun Dafa with them. During this time, they were arrested and jailed numerous times in detention centers and police stations, and every time they were able to use righteous thoughts to leave the dens of evil. Once, they were arrested while distributing truth-clarifying materials, and the unlawful police confiscated their cell phones and pagers. They were continually persecuted and were very poor off financially. During the most difficult time, they only had 20 Yuan. * They worked to support their basic daily needs, and if they had a little bit more money, they would give it to other practitioners who were also in difficult situations.

On December 26, 2001, they were traveling to a southern city to help some practitioners who had become affected by the persecution's lies. On the way, they were turned in to the police for clarifying the truth on the train and were illegally detained at Shunyi Detention Center in Beijing, where they were tortured numerous times. Later, with the help of a kind-hearted person, police reluctantly let them see each other once a week. Every time they meet, they would encourage each other to believe firmly in Master and Dafa. Later, they were forcibly separated again.

Dong Cuifang was transferred to the Daxing Female Jail on March 11, 2003 and was tortured to death after only eight days. At the same time, Shen Wenjie was secretly transferred to a labor camp in the Daxing district of Beijing and there has been no news from him since.

Dong Cuifang and Shen Wenjie (see third photo) had been engaged for a long time, and due to the persecution since July 20 1999, they were unable to get married. They had been in love for almost 10 years, and hundreds of letters were exchanged between them. Dong Cuifang has now been tortured to death, Shen Wenjie has been unjustly jailed, and the lovers in this photo are now separated by life and death. As far as we know, her fiancée does not know of this tragic news.

Dong Cuifang's family once sued the Daxing Female Jail. The persons responsible bribed their way out of this situation and have also threatened her parents.

The persecution this outstanding doctor and pilot have faced is a small reflection of the persecution that Jiang and his associates have brought upon Falun Dafa practitioners.
