(Clearwisdom.net) In April 2010, the Huantai County Court illegally sentenced Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Chen Guang to seven years in prison. Ms. Chen appealed the case. However, the Huantai County public security authorities held her file in the Huantai County Court, and would not send her appeal up to the Zibo City Court. As a result, her case cannot be examined.
On May 12, 2009, Huantai County policemen pretended to be movers and arrested Ms. Chen at her home. While Ms. Chen was detained, she was injected with unknown medications, which made her unable to walk and gave her body the chills.
Ms. Chen is a Falun Gong practitioner from Zhangdian District, Zibo City. She used to have uremia and other illnesses, and her condition did not improve even after numerous medical treatments. Fortunately, after Ms. Chen was introduced to Falun Gong, her uremia disappeared after a few months of practicing. At the same time, she tried to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in all aspects of her life. She became healthy both mentally and physically.
After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started to persecute Falun Gong, Ms. Chen did not want people to listen to the CCP's fabricated propaganda and misunderstand Falun Gong, thus losing their precious chance to be able to cultivate. She started to use various ways to clarify the truth about Falun Gong to people. Many learned the truth that Falun Dafa is good, and at the same time, people saw the ugly nature of the CCP which smears and persecutes Falun Gong. However, the CCP used Ms. Chen's talking to people about Falun Gong as an excuse to arrest her.
In May 2009, two Falun Gong practitioners from Huantai County were arrested when they were distributing Falun Dafa informational materials. Under brutal torture, one of the practitioners gave out Ms. Chen's name. Around 5:00 p.m. on May 12, 2009, Huantai County 610 Office agents arrested Ms. Chen at her home, ransacked her home and stole many of her personal possessions, including 60,000 yuan cash, a car, checks and other valuables totaling 300,000 yuan.
Ms. Chen is still being detained at the Zibo Detention Center.
