More than a dozen police officers ransacked her house and confiscated Falun Gong informational materials and other personal belongings. Ms. Shan was illegally detained for two weeks.

When her family went to the Mengyin County Detention Center to take her home after two weeks, they were told that Ms. Shan would not be released, and had been transferred to the Linyi Detention Center.

Ms. Shan was detained and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) minions in 1999, and extorted of more than 6,000 yuan, for appealing in Beijing for the right to practice Falun Gong.

She was held in a brainwashing center in 2000. Officials attempted to extort 2,000 yuan from her family, but the family was too poor to make the payment.
