Case Description:
Ms. Liu Xianglan, 61, lived in Guojiawu Village, Beiwu Town, Shunyi County, Beijing. She validated Falun Dafa in late 2000, and was detained by lawless officials. She was detained again in January 2001, along with more than thirty other practitioners from the same town, and was cursed by Township CCP Secretary Zhou Tingjun and the police. Ms. Liu was forced to attend brainwashing sessions, and was also extorted of ten thousand yuan. Two months later, she and her daughter-in-law wisely escaped, and she was forced to become homeless in order to avoid being arrested at home. Her son and daughter-in-law are still homeless for the same reason. In March, 2002, Ms. Liu was arrested by police from Xianghe County, Hebei Province. She was detained, cursed, beaten, and tortured. She refused to give up cultivation, and members of the Shunyi County 610 Office arrested her and took her to a brainwashing class held at the police academy. She subsequently suffered symptoms of a stroke. The police did not release her, and she died.
