At 9 a.m. on November 3, 2010, the Kunming Middle Court in Kunming City, Yunnan Province, was scheduled to try Falun Gong practitioners Ms. Wang Shulan, Ms. Yang Gongxiu, Ms. Wu Qifen, and Ms. Zhu Enhua.
At noon on April 12, 2010, these four practitioners were arrested by officer Qiu Xueyan and others from the Liangyuan Police Station and affiliated with the Xishan Police Sub-Bureau in Kunming City and the Xishan District Domestic Security Brigade. After their arrests, one of the four practitioners' homes was ransacked. They confiscated her computer, monitor, stereo system, a desktop MP3 player, an MP4 player, another MP3 player, and a thousand yuan in cash. After that, Ms. Wang was put under house arrest, and Ms. Yang was released on bail.
Ms. Wang Shulan, who is in her 70s, is retired from the Wuhua District Printing Factory in Kunming City.

On April 4, 2000, she went to the Appeals Office under the CCP (Chinese Communist Party ) Committee of the Yunnan provincial government. Because of that, she was arrested by people from the Domestic Security Brigade in Xishan Police Bureau and taken to a forced labor camp, where she was detained for three years.
Ms. Yang Gongxiu, 65, is retired from the Yunnan Province Railway General Company. On April 22, she was arrested and taken to the detention center. Due to her high blood pressure, she was released for medical reasons on April 15.
