Case Description:

( Ms. Wang Ping of Wuhe County died in May 2017, after years of repeated arrests and detentions for refusing to renounce Falun Gong, a mind-body practice based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

The 53-year-woman credited Falun Gong for returning her to health. As a physician at Wuhe Health and Epidemic Prevention Station, Ms. Wang couldn’t find a cure for her myriad of health problems. Her symptoms, however, disappeared shortly after she took up Falun Gong in 1998.

Ms. Wang’s husband had an affair during their earlier years of marriage. Because of their strained relationship, Ms. Wang didn’t attend her father-in-law’s funeral. But after she became a Falun Gong practitioner, she decided to forgive her husband. She not only paid all his debts accumulated during his affair but also cared for him until his death. She continued to look after her mother-in-law after her husband’s passing.

Having personally experienced Falun Gong’s transformative power, Ms. Wang never wavered in her faith after the Chinese communist regime launched a nationwide campaign against the spiritual discipline in July 1999.

Ms. Wang became a target for persecution during the next two decades. She was arrested more than 30 times, half of which took place during a 15-month window between March 2012 and June 2013.

She was twiice given forced labor and sentenced to prison once. Each time when she was detained, she suffered brutal torture. Despite all this, she kept practicing Falun Gong and talking to people about it every time she was released.

She filed a criminal complaint in December 2015 against former Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin for initiating the persecution of Falun Gong. Below is a highlight of her suffering as documented in her complaint.
