Case Description:
Ms. Liu Guifen, 57, was a resident of Bin'an in Bin County in Heilongjiang Province. She used to buy books, audiotapes and tape recorders for other practitioners, and also often went out to clarify the truth. Police arrested Ms. Liu on her way to Beijing to appeal. She was detained and endured beatings and humiliation. After she was released, police often went to harass and intimidate her, even confiscating things from her home. In 2001, Ms. Liu went to another practitioner's home, where she was reported and then illegally arrested. She was detained in the No. 2 Detention Center of Bin County for one month and was not released until the head of the 610 Office in that area extorted 4,000 Yuan from her. Her body and mind were slowly devastated through this intense pressure, and she suffered a relapse of a sickness that had disappeared through cultivation. She went to her daughter's home in Shuangcheng City and passed away on September 19, 2004.
