Case Description:
Mr. Zhen Hailiang, 76, is from Qianyeng Town, Xinji City, Hebei Province. He started Falun Dafa cultivation in 1997. During his cultivation path, he stopped needing to take his medications, which he took previously for his cerebral thrombosis and prostate problems. He also stopped smoking and playing Mahjong [a Chinese gambling game]. When he studied the book Zhuan Falun, every word in the book appeared very big. Mr. Zhen said that Falun Gong was wonderful and Teacher was truly not an ordinary person. Later he no longer had to wear his glasses when studying the Fa. At around 11 p.m. on August 8, 2002, some people from the Jiuchen Town government and the local police station unlawfully arrested his third daughter and took her to an office at the town's government building. They beat her, extorted cash from her, and persecuted her physically, mentally, and economically. On noon of August 11, 2002, when the person who watched his daughter attempted to rape her, she stopped him with her righteous thoughts and fled from the evil den. That person went everywhere to look for her. He went to her sister's home and then to her parents' home to harass them. As a result, Mr. Zhen's mind and body were severely harmed. He fell ill and died on October 21, 2002.
