Case Description:
Mr. Shi Weizhi, 68, was a resident of Shannan Village, Douhutun Town, Liaocheng City, Shangdong Province. He had many diseases such as hypertension and had suffered a stroke. Through practicing Falun Dafa, he recovered from those diseases. After July 20, 1999, his two daughters and son-in-law went to Beijing to validate Dafa. The police detained them and beat them. They also ransacked Mr. Shi's home and arrested his wife, his son, and his daughter-in-law. For some time, only Mr. Shi and his 9-year-old granddaughter were left at home. The police also pressured them to pay 5,000 yuan as a "fine" or bail. After that incident, his two daughters were arrested, detained and subjected to brainwashing many times. They were forced to leave home to avoid continued persecution. His son-in-law was sent to a forced labor camp. In order to arrest his two daughters, the persecutors went to Mr. Shi's home many times and threatened him, which greatly damaged his mental and physical health - he lived in fear and stress for a long period of time before passing away on June 18, 2005.
