(Clearwisdom.net) (By a correspondent from Hubei Province) On July 30, 2009, the Jiangan District Court illegally sentencedMs. Fu Shulan from Wuhan City to six years' imprisonment. Ms. Fu is currently being detained in the 3rd Ward of Fanjiatai Prison in Shanyang.
At noon on August 15, 2008, police from the Wuhan City Police Department and the Huaqiao Police Station, along with the staff from the residential committee took Ms. Fu away from her home. The police ransacked her house and confiscated Dafa books and some personal property as well.
At around 9:00 p.m. that evening, police from the Huaqiao Police Station sent Ms. Fu to the Baibuting Detention Center, located in the Jiangan Area. Ms. Fu was detained there for one year and subjected to various forms of persecution.
On June 12, 2009, the Jiangan District Court put Ms. Fu on trial. When Ms. Fu saw her family at the court, she shouted, "Falun Dafa is good!" three times. The court staff threatened, "Since you yelled three times, your prison term will be extended by three years."
Ms. Fu's family were shocked to see Ms. Fu's disfigured appearance. Ms. Fu's face was severely swollen, she was lame and there were blood stains on her hands. Ms. Fu told her family, "They detained me in a small room for a year, I never received the 400 yuan you sent to me every month, and the handcuffs cut into my flesh and caused the bleeding."
