Tianshan District Court Hands Illegal Sentences to Practitioners Chen Dan and Others in Urumqi City, Xinjiang Autonomous Region
On November 13, 2002, the Tianshan District People's Court in Urumqi City, Xinjiang Province sentenced Dafa practitioners Chen Dan, Shan Feng, Zhu Aiyun, Wang Xiaoli, and Wang Jing to jail terms of nine years, seven years, seven years, and five years respectively. The public prosecution body was the Urumqi City, Tianshan District People's Court (the Urumqi City, Tianshan District People's Court Verdict (2002) trial number 407).
Dafa practitioner Chen Dan, female, currently 31 years-old, was a former elementary school teacher in Hongqi Street of Changchun City, Jilin Province; Shan Feng, female, was a worker at the Daily Use Chemical Factory in Urumqi City; Zhu Aiyung, 35 years-old, was a farmer member of Regiment 183, Division 10 in Alatai City, Xinjiang Province; Wang Xiaoli, female, 29 years-old, was from Chabuchaer County of Yili City in Xinjiang Province.
In June 2001, the above-mentioned practitioners and Yuan Jiang (who was the former main Falun Gong volunteer contact person in Lanzhou City, Gansu Province, and later persecuted to death) established a Dafa website, and materials center in Urumqi City. Because they prepared truth clarification materials ready to be presented over the radio and video, as well as having verbally clarified the truth to people, they were illegally arrested and sentenced. It is known that Wang Jing was released at an earlier date. The other practitioners are jailed in the Xinjiang Female Prison (also known as Xinjiang Second Prison).
People involved in this judgment: Tianshan District People's Court Presiding Judge Lin Weihua, Judges Zhang Xintao, and Yu Keqin, and Secretary Wang Jie.
Tianshan District People's Court prosecutors are Yang Feng, and Jia Xiaohong.
