Elderly Couple Clarifies the Truth in Court

May 07, 2011 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Li Fu, 69, and his wife Ms. Sun Xianxin are residents of Kunming City, Yunnan Province. Ms. Sun began to practice Falun Gong in April 1999. All of her illnesses disappeared and she regained her hearing.

When Mr. Li and Ms. Sun visited their friend Ms. Wang Shulan, who is also a Falun Gong practitioner, they were followed by the police officers who were monitoring Ms. Wang. On August 27, 2010, the police ransacked their home and confiscated many of their personal belongings. They were told to wait for their trials. After that, they were monitored and their movement was restricted.

On April 22, 2011, the Kunming City Intermediate Court held their trials. Both the presiding judge and prosecutor just went through the motions; they spoke in very low voices and were difficult to understand. The two practitioners were not afraid and defended themselves with strong evidence. Their compassion and righteousness touched the people in the gallery.

When the prosecutor asked Ms. Sun about her past several forced labor sentences, she answered, “I did not commit any crime by practicing Falun Gong. I was illegally sentenced and I deny any wrongdoing.” When the presiding judge brought up the Falun Gong materials confiscated from their residence, Ms. Sun said, “Those materials were mine. However, they are not evidence of a crime but materials for saving people.” She talked about how quitting the CCP and its affiliates would bless people and reciting “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance is good” would bring blessings to people. She said to the presiding judge, “I am telling you the truth right now. If you quit the CCP and recite 'Falun Dafa is good' and 'Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance is good,' and treat Falun Gong practitioners with kindness, you will be blessed.”

Ms. Sun asked the prosecutor many questions during her self-defense, but the prosecutor was unable to answer them. She read their self-defense statement and their final statement, which stated the facts that Falun Dafa benefited society, and that the persecution of Falun Gong is groundless.

Finally, the presiding judge collected his things from the table and left the courtroom without a word. Other officials silently left as well. They all understood the truth.
