Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Jia Ronglin, 41 years old, lived in Fengrun Town, Fengrun District, Tangshan City, Hebei Province. He went to Beijing to appeal in 2001 and was arrested. He was held at a local detention center, fined ten thousand yuan, and released after being detained for 15 days. During his detention, Mr. Jia was forced to write a Guarantee Statement and fined another five thousand yuan. He wrote a solemn declaration later, stating that his guarantee statement was now null and void. He was then abducted to a brainwashing class and fined two thousand yuan by officers from the Fengrun District 610 office and Police Substation. Six months later, Mr. Jia was arrested and held in Fengrun Detention Center. After being fined another three thousand yuan, he was released in July 2001. The local police kept harassing him, trying to arrest him, and ransacking his home. He was forced to become homeless in order to avoid being arrested. After suffering through all of the persecution, Mr. Jia died suddenly on November 9, 2003.
