( Jiang'an District Court in Wuhan City brought Ms. Li Shihong to trial. Her attorney successfully defended her. The judge and prosecutors had nothing to reply.

In her defense her attorney said, "It is legal to practice Falun Gong. One can't treat the words of a certain leader as the law. Isn't that putting individuals above the law and the state?"

The prosecutors from Jiang'an District Procuratorate had no reply. The judge had nothing to say either, because they were all very clear that Ms. Li Shihong was innocent.

On March 31, 2009, Ms. Li was abruptly seized and illegally arrested at her home, by officers Luo Lin, Yu Jiming, Wan Baozhu, and others from Jiang'an District Police. She was illegally detained for more than a year, until the trial on April 7, 2010.

According to Article 140 of the Law of Criminal Procedure, "Investigations should be finished within a month. The maximum number of investigations is two." Article 124 of the Law of Criminal Procedure dictates, "Complex cases that cannot be finished within that time limit can be extended for one month with permission from a higher level Procuratorate."

Officers Luo Lin, Yu Jiming, Wan Baozhu, and others from Jiang'an District Police detained Ms. Li Shihong for over a year. They tried everything they could to fabricate some so-called "evidence." They even tried to collect evidence from her 13-year-old son. Despite resorting to all kinds of methods, they still were unable to collect any evidence. The Jiang'an District Procuratorate had to return the case three times for additional investigation due to lack of evidence.

These illegal activities, including illegal arrest, detention, investigation, and trial, directed at Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Li Shihong are blatant attempts by the Jiang'an District Police, Procuratorate, and the court, to falsely convict her. This is another example of how the Chinese legal system has been hijacked by the CCP into committing crimes against Falun Gong.
