62-year-old Practitioner Ma Jinfeng from Hebei Province Dies After Years of Abuse and Harassment

December 28, 2004 |   By Falun Dafa practitioner from Hebei province

(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Ma Jinfeng, a 62-year-old from Juyang Township, Sanhe City, Hebei Province, started practicing Falun Dafa in November 2000. For the past four years, he has been subjected to repeated persecution. Under this tremendous pressure, he died on September 20, 2004. The local police still came to his home in an attempt to harass him the day after he died.

In November 2000, a few days after Mr. Ma started practicing, his high blood pressure and high levels of cholesterol disappeared. He was very grateful to Falun Dafa and to Teacher. On December 16, 2000, he went to Beijing to appeal for an end of the persecution and was abducted to the township government and later detained in Sanhe Detention Center. The staff of the township government went to ransack his home several times during his detention.

Since then, on all so-called sensitive days, local township staff members went to his home to harass him or to take him to town and detain him. On June 3, 2001, local authorities put him under surveillance and limited his freedom. To avoid this harassment, he was forced to leave home and become homeless. When the authorities could not find him the following day, twenty to thirty police officers and staff members went to his home three times looking for him, disrupting his family and the neighbors.

Local authorities then harassed his family every day.

At 2 o'clock one October morning in 2001, a dozen police officers and town government officials stormed into his home. Finding Ma there, they dragged him off to a detention center. Mr. Ma resisted the brainwashing and was released a few days later.

One night in November 2003, the police went to Ma Jinfeng's home again. His family refused to open the door. The police waited outside until morning. As soon as someone opened the door, they stormed in and ransacked the house, but could not find anything.

Having been persecuted for 4-5 years, Ma Jinfeng lost all his hair. He died on September 20, 2004. The police came the day after he died. They forced their way in after they were told that Mr. Ma had died.

The government of Sanhe City had spent tremendous amounts of manpower and resources to persecute Falun Gong and its practitioners. As a result, 46 practitioners have been sent to forced labor camps, and their families have suffered tremendously. In May and June 2004, they rounded up Falun Gong practitioners without any warrant. A pharmacist, Ms. Gao Guiyun, from a local clinic in Yang Township was abducted on June 3, 2004 and sent to Tangshan City Kaiping Forced Labor Camp. On December 1, 2004, Ms. Gao's mother died, murmuring Ms. Gao Guiyun's name, as witnessed by her family members.
