Yan Ezi - 燕娥子
Ms. Yan E'zi, 63 years old, lived in Wangcun Village of Sucun Township, Yuanshi County, Hebei Province. Before she practiced Falun Gong, she suffered from many illnesses. Fortunately in 1996, Ms. Yan began to practice Falun Dafa and she benefited both mentally and physically. All her illnesses were cured, and she became happier and more open-minded. She was illiterate, but was able to read Falun Dafa books after she began practicing. In 1999, she was detained for 7 days in the County government for going to Beijing to appeal, and was fined 300 yuan. After that, the evil persons frequently went to her home to harass and threaten her. She was once arrested by the local police station. Her family spent 200 yuan to get her out.
In December 2000, she was arrested and illegally detained in the county detention center for more than 14 months. She was severely persecuted both mentally and physically and was emaciated. Authorities extorted another 2,000 yuan from her family before she was released. After she returned home, she was not able to recover from her state of poor health, and died on October 10, 2003.
