Chen Fei was born in March 1994 and he is currently attending the Year 6 class at Yunshan Elementary School in Lanxi City, Zhejiang Province. His mother Tang Meifen is working a part-time job and they are living a very difficult life due to lack of sufficient income.
Chen Fei's father Chen Jianning was a Falun Dafa practitioner in Shidu Town, Wuning County, Jiangxi Province who had begun practising in 1996. On August 28th, 2002, personnel from the Wuning County 6-10 Office, as well as staff from the former Politics and Security Division and from the Shidu Town Police Station abducted Chen Jianning and his wife and tortured them. Chen Jianning was beaten to death later that day at the 6-10 Office.
