Case Description:
Ms. Zhu Zhengfang was an 88 year-old lady from Xuancheng District, Anhui Province. Before July 20, 1999, many Falun Dafa practitioners went to her house to study the Fa and do the exercises. They persevered in practicing the exercises even when it was raining. Despite being an illiterate, she never failed to listen carefully when other practitioners were reciting sections of Zhuan Falun during Fa study. Hence, she benefited both physically and mentally from Falun Dafa. After the persecution began, she was often harassed and many of her family members who went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa were illegally detained. She was physically and mentally devastated by this. One day, she accidentally fell to the ground and has been ill ever since. The police used this opportunity to visit her once every few days, and would capture any Falun Dafa practitioner who visited her. So her daughter could not visit her. Ms. Zhu Zhengfang did not say anything but cried everyday in bed. She died at 8 p.m. on December 31, 1999.
