Case Description:
Ms. Bao Yuzhen was 66 years old. She was from Hanjiazhong Village, of the Wancheng District, in Nanyang City, Henan Province. She began practicing Dafa in 1997, and her illnesses of many years were all cured. Her body became strong and healthy. After the persecution began in 1999, together with her daughter and son-in-law, she went out to appeal and tell people the truth about Falun Dafa. They were stopped by police at the bus station and sent back. Using her righteous thoughts, Ms. Bao escaped, but her son-in-law was captured. Afterwards, her son-in-law was illegally arrested twice consecutively and was held in jail longer than the law allowed. Ms. Bao's body and mind suffered tremendously. Her diabetes recurred, and she suffered a cerebral haemorrhage. In early 2002, Tanghe County policemen from the 610 Office, along with Tongzhaipu Township Police, raided her daughter's house (where she lived) and confiscated their Dafa books. From then on, her daughter and son-in-law had to stay away from their home in order to avoid arrest, leaving only Ms. Bao at home to look after their ten year-old child. After witnessing the thug-like conduct of the police, living in extreme fear for a prolonged period of time, and suffering from the loneliness of a broken family, Ms. Bao passed away in the winter of 2002.
