Case Description:
Mr. Wang Lianshu, 71, was a retired employee of the Yingtai Transportation Company in Hebei Province. He had suffered from Hepatitis B and low blood pressure. After he practiced Dafa all of his illnesses disappeared without treatment. He became mentally and physically healthy. Whenever he talked to anyone, he told them that Dafa brought good things to him. His wife and daughter were illegally locked up for over two months and extorted of 3,000 yuan because they went to Beijing to appeal in 2002. His workplace and the town police station authorities also exerted pressure on him. During the forced brainwashing, Mr. Wang wrote the so-called guarantee statement. Later, through Master's compassionate hints, Mr. Wang made a declaration on the Minghui/Clearwisdom website saying that all the words he wrote against his will were void, and that he would compensate for his faults through correct actions. Mr. Wang was taken back to his hometown because he practiced Dafa. At New Years and other holidays, both the workplace and the town government organized people to "visit" him (actually monitoring and threatening him). They feared that he would go to appeal. Having his body and mind traumatized, Mr. Wang's previous illnesses recurred and he died on November 11, 2004.
