Case Description:
Ms. Song Yunling was 58 years old. She was an employee from the 4th Mine Trench, Wulong Metal Mines, Dandong City, Liaoning Province. Ms. Song was diagnosed with many kinds of sicknesses, including cardiac disease, before she started practicing Falun Dafa. When her cardiac disease surfaced, she had to rest every 3 to 5 steps to avoid collapsing. After practicing Falun Dafa, all of her sicknesses were gone. Ms. Song always said, "It was Teacher who gave me a new life." In 1999, the Chinese Communist regime started persecuting Falun Gong and destroyed Song Yunling's practice site. In February 2000, she was practicing the Falun Gong exercises one morning with about 20 people when the police illegally arrested them. They detained Ms. Song for 15 days. She practiced the exercises during detention and the police took her to the office to threaten her. Afterwards, the authorities from her company forcefully sent Song Yunling to a brainwashing session for two weeks, where she was tortured mentally and physically. Ms. Song suffered greatly from their harassment, and her family members forbade her from leaving her home. Ms. Song suffered a heart attack and passed away in Autumn 2001.
