Case Description:

( Mr. Wang Xueqin, Sun Tongmei's husband, was partially paralyzed due to a stroke he had before he began practicing Falun Gong. In 1997, Mr. Wang recovered after only one week practicing of Falun Gong, and he felt very light when he walked. He felt so happy that he kept telling people "Falun Gong is miraculous!"

Ms. Sun Tongmei's husband, Mr. Wang Xueqin

After the CCP began persecuting Falun Gong in 1999, Mr. Wang strongly supported his wife Sun Tongmei's decision to go appeal in Beijing. After she was taken to the Tahe County Detention Center, Mr. Wang repeatedly went to the detention center to request her release. He told the the detention center director, "Let her go home! I'll stay here in her place!"

Because Ms. Sun Tongmei was jailed, supervised, harassed, and had funds extorted from her many times, Mr. Wang also suffered both spiritually and physically. In May 2001, due to the extreme pressure the couple was under, he passed away. He was only 65 years old.
