(Clearwisdom.net) Lixia District Police Department officials and procurator collaborated with court officials to try Ms. Sun Ping on August 12, 2010. Earlier this year, the procurator returned Ms. Sun's case to the Lixia District Police Department due to insufficient evidence. The officers in the Lixia District Police Department then fabricated evidence to once again persecute Ms. Sun.

Ms. Sun Ping was illegally arrested at her home in October 2009. Participating in the arrest were officers from the Lixia District Police Department and from the Keyuan Street Police Station. The police tried to make Ms. Sun tell them the names of practitioners who were in contact with her, and who gave her informational materials to distribute. They claimed that if she told them, the punishment would be reduced or exempted. Ms. Sun Ping refused to comply.

The police then arrested several practitioners who used to visit Ms. Sun at home and ransacked their homes. The police also forced the practitioners' families to pay huge amounts of extortion money, and then lied to them, claiming that Ms. Sun had told on them. They also fabricated false evidence against Ms. Sun.

Ms. Sun, 59, was divorced when she was young and had to raise her daughter alone until her daughter graduated from an art college. Ms. Sun had suffered from serious heart problems and when her condition worsened, she had to be supported with a specially-designed chair to sit and eat. The suffering and hardship made her lose hope in life.

In 1996, Ms. Sun began to practice Falun Gong. Her heart problem disappeared, she looked younger, and became optimistic. She conducted herself according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and became a good person often praised by her neighbors and colleagues.

Since the Chinese Communist regime started the persecution of Falun Gong, Ms. Sun has been subjected to persecution many times. She was extorted money, incarcerated in a brainwashing facility, and even locked up in a mental hospital.

Ms. Sun is currently being held in the Jinan Detention Center.
