Case Description:
Ms. Liu Fang, 53, was from Jiangnan Street, Fengman District, Jilin City. She learned Falun Dafa in 1996, and all her diseases disappeared within a short time. After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, policemen harassed her many times. She was unlawfully detained twice and jailed in a forced labor camp once. She went to Beijing to appeal on behalf of Falun Gong in December 1999 and was detained there. Policemen poured cold water on her head, one basin after another, on a cold winter day. She was sent back to Jilin and detained for fifteen days. She was detained again in February 2000 for attending an experience-sharing gathering at another practitioner's home. She was released five days later due to high blood pressure. She went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong again in October 2000, and was sentenced to three years in a forced labor camp. She was very weak and had high blood pressure when she was jailed in Changchun City's Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp. Nonetheless, policemen still beat her with electric batons. She was released for hospital treatment due to very high blood pressure. In 2001, she went to the countryside, where she clarified the truth of Falun Gong and was subsequently arrested. She was released due to her family members' rescue efforts. During the 16th Communist Party Congress in 2002, a kindhearted person warned her that the police were planning to take her to a brainwashing class, so she fled and was forced to become homeless. After the continuous persecution she suffered, Liu Fang was severely injured both physically and mentally. She suffered from a mental collapse in 2003, and in March 2004, she had bleeding in her brain and lapsed into a coma. She passed away on April 13, 2005.
