61-year-old Ms. Qi Xufang was a doctor at the Weihai City Health and Epidemic Prevention Station in Shandong Province. She retired in 2000 and benefited immensely after she began practising Falun Dafa in 1997. Her workplace pressured her to quit the practice many times after the persecution began on July 20th 1999. She was reported to the local authorities when she was telling the facts of Falun Dafa to people who had been misled by the government propaganda at an early-morning farm market in November 2002. The police from Huancui District Police Station arrested her and detained her in the Weihai City Detention Centre for over twenty days. Later they sent her to the Wangcun Brainwashing Centre in Zibo City, Shandong Province, and detained her there for over one month. She was severely persecuted and forced to give up practising Falun Gong. She suffered both physically and mentally.
Ms. Qi Xufang resumed her practice and study of Falun Dafa after she was released. Police officers Liu Jie and Liu Jinhu from the 610 Office1 of Huancui District Police Department often came to harass her in various ways. A plainclothes police officer reported her when she was telling the facts of Falun Dafa to people on May 23rd 2004. Liu Jie led a few policemen to illegally ransack her home the following day. Facing huge pressure, her family members did not allow her to go out or contact any Falun Dafa practitioners. She suffered severely both mentally and in her daily life. She developed stomach cancer and died on August 23rd 2005.
