(Clearwisdom.net) On July 4, 2008, the police from Jian'an Police Station in Shijiazhuang City, led by Xue Jianjun, came to Ms. Rong Xiuzhen's home. Her mother and sister were visiting and her daughter was home on summer break from school. They ransacked her home and confiscated a DVD burner, over 3,000 yuan and other personal belongings. Then they arrested Ms. Rong, her sister and her daughter and brought them to the police station.
During the same evening, Ms. Rong was sent to the Shijiazhuang City First Detention Center. Her sister and daughter were sent to the Yanfenglou Hotel and were released two days later.
On October 8, 2008, the hearing of Ms. Rong's case was held at the Qiaodong District Court of Shijiazhuang City, but no verdict was reached due to lack of evidence.
On April 23, 2009 and June 23, 2010, the hearings were held again without a verdict. Ms. Rong's family was not notified for these two hearings.
Ms. Rong has been held at the detention center for more than two years without legal grounds.
Ms. Rong began to practice Falun Gong in 1999. Since then, she became more peaceful, sincere and kind. She uses the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to guide her conduct in daily life, which has brought peace and harmony to her family.
