Nine Practitioners in Fuyang City, Zhejiang Province Receive Long-term Prison Sentences
(Clearwisdom.net) The 610 Office and the Fuyang City Police Department in Zhejiang Province have arrested and imprisoned Dafa practitioners on numerous occasions. They also ransacked practitioners' homes, thoroughly disturbing them and their family members' lives. On November 19, 2008, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) personnel in Fuyang City influenced a court judge to sentence nine practitioners to lengthly prison terms.
One of the defendants, Ms. Jin Meihua, had already been serving more than a year of a five year sentence at the Fuyang Detention Center, on a similar false charge. However, when she was re-tried, an additional ten years was added to her original five year sentence.
Mr. Dai Hongqiang was sentenced to 8 years in prison, after having already been persecuted by the Fuyang City CCP personnel for more than a year. The police even withheld money and clothing that other practitioners brought him.
Ms. Sun Xianglian, 70 years old, had been severely abused by her step-father while she was growing up, and as a result she developed a deep hatred and resentment towards him. However, after having improved her body and mind through practicing Falun Gong, she forgave him and let go of the hatred that she held in her heart. Since she had always lived a simple and frugal life, she was able to help support several families who could barely make ends meet. Even though she is such a good person, the CCP still sentenced her to five years in prison
Ms. Gong Guizhu and her husband, Mr. Xuan (74 years old), were sentenced to three year of forced labor for simply saying a few positive words about Falun Dafa after the persecution started on July 20, 1999. While imprisoned, they both developed serious illnesses and were taken to separate hospitals for medical treatment. Since the persecution began, they have been detained and had their home ransacked numerous times by the Fuyang Municipal CCP personnel. Mr. Xuan was sentenced to 10 years and 6 months in prison and Ms. Gong was sentenced for 6 years.
Ms. Fu Xiaoming went to Beijing after July 20, 1999 with the hope of restoring Master Li's reputation and Dafa's innocence. After she was released, she was monitored day and night, making it very difficult to live a normal life again. She was sentenced to five years of forced labor.
Ms. Sun Guifang had always firmly believed in Dafa and Master. After the persecution began, she was arrested, imprisoned, had her home ransacked, and was taken to a brainwashing center--all because she wanted to tell the Beijing officials the truth about Falun Gong. This caused her husband a considerable amount of mental stress, and as a result, he suffered a nervous breakdown with periodic bouts of depression. Ms. Sun was sentenced on November 19, 2008 to four years of forced labor, leaving her seriously ill husband at home to take care of himself.
Mr. Xu Xiangrong, was sentenced to five years of imprisonment
Ms. Huang Meirong, 77 years old, was sentenced to eight years of imprisonment.
The whereabouts of the above mentioned practitioners is not known at the present time.
