Case Description:

Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Gao Lihua, 43 years old, was from Liuji Village, Liuji Township, Jing County, Hebei Province and was an employee of Wuqiao County's Food Administration Bureau Food Factory. Prior to practicing Falun Gong, she had severe heart disease and many other health problems. After Falun Gong practice, her diseases disappeared.

From late 2001 to 2004, in order to avoid being illegally arrested and brainwashed, she and her practitioner husband Mr. Liu Zhigang were forced to live in exile. During that period, policemen from Wuqiao County's Police Department and Jing County's Police Department harassed them several times. Policemen from Jing County's Police Department ransacked their living quarters, intimidated and even beat the couple's parents and relatives. Gao Lihua didn't have the privilege of her former free environment; she suffered for a long time in stressful situations. As a result, many of her diseases recurred and she even had apparent symptoms of stomach cancer. She was sent to a hospital on January 22, 2004, and passed away after unsuccessful medical treatment in March 2004.
