Case Description:
Mr. Kong Zhaoshu was sixty-four years old. She was from Dalian City, Liaoning Province. She used to suffer from serious heart disease and had been hospitalized twice. She had a major heart surgery in 1992. Even after taking six or seven kinds of medicine each day, she still had serious symptoms: she had cyanosis, and she had to rest after taking only a few steps. After she started practicing Falun Gong in 1996, she studied the Fa and practiced the exercises every day. In less than one month, she completely recovered and no longer took any medication. In September of 2000, after Jiang's regime started persecuting Falun Gong, she went to Beijing to validate Dafa. She was arrested in Dalian City and was later sent to the Dalian rehabilitation center, where she was tortured. Afterwards the Bayi road security office sent her to the Yaojia detention center. She was detained there for over one month, and they extorted 7,000 Yuan from her. Because she was forced to stop studying the Fa and practicing the exercises, her heart symptoms recurred. She passed away in September of 2004.
