The following is the statement Falun Dafa practitioner Shan Yuhuan presented in court:

I am present here in this court not merely to defend myself, but also our respected Teacher and Falun Dafa.

Falun Dafa is the great Buddha Law which holds the cosmic characteristic Zhen-Shan-Ren (Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance) as its foundation. Falun Dafa was made public in 1992. Since then it has spread to all corners of China and the rest of the world. It has been translated into more than 20 languages. Now, people in more than 60 countries and regions have fortunately discovered the Buddha Law. At the 1993 Far East Health Fair, Falun Dafa won the "Award for Achievement in Frontier Science." It has also won more than 1000 awards and proclamations all over the world. Falun Dafa has won the praise of kind-hearted people the world over, and as a result, May 13 has been designated as "World Falun Dafa Day." It's proved that the spread of Falun Dafa brings numerous benefits and doesn't harm to any society.

Falun Dafa, with its broad and profound inner meaning as well as boundless mercy, wisdom and mighty virtue, has tempered numerous Dafa practitioners who are selfless and willing to give up everything in order to uphold the truth.

However, the evil Jiang regime has deceived the people and framed Falun Dafa. Numerous Dafa practitioners, from teenage girls to elderly people over seventy years of age, have been tortured to death. Many families have been broken up or scattered and many people dare not return home, as they would most likely be arrested. Under such circumstances Dafa practitioners are saving the people who have been fooled by the evil with their immeasurable mercy as well as great compassion and forbearance. Many people have been saved after they learned the truth. No matter how cruel the persecution is, it cannot change Dafa practitioners' firm upright thoughts and firm belief in Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance.

Falun Dafa is good. Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa (law and principles). Restore the good name of our Teacher and Falun Dafa. Falun Dafa is innocent and Dafa practitioners are innocent. Release all detained Falun Dafa practitioners!

Sentient beings, cherish it! My life will forever coexist and radiate with "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance."

Note: Dafa practitioner Shan Yuhuan was kidnapped by Wang Taiquan, Zhang Lijun and other policemen from the Jiefang Road Police Sub-station in the city of Anshan on August 13, 2002. She was tried in the Tiexi District Court, Anshan City on April 8, 2003, after she had been detained for 8 months. Shan Yuhuan did not cooperate with the evil. She was handcuffed and carried to the court by three policemen. She shouted repeatedly "Falun Dafa is good! Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa! Restore the good name of our Teacher and Falun Dafa! Falun Dafa is innocent and Dafa practitioners are innocent! Withdraw the arrest warrant on our Teacher! Release all detained Falun Dafa practitioners!"

The judge knew that justice was not on his side, so he mumbled the verdict in a very low voice. People in the court could not hear clearly what he had said. After the so-called verdict was handed down, Shan Yuhuan refused to sign it.

Currently, Dafa practitioner Shan Yuhuan (illegally sentenced and the term of her imprisonment is not yet known) is being held at the Anshan No. One Detention Center. We call on all just people to lend a helping hand in rescuing her.
