( On October 15, 2010, police officers from the State Security Bureau of the Anping County Police Bureau, Hengshui City arrested Ms. Wang Xiaolian, a Falun Gong practitioner from Anping County, Hengshui City, Hebei Province. Later, the authorities issued an arrest notice. On June 15, 2011, a secret court session was held, in which Ms. Wang was put on trial without any notice sent to her family. Ms. Wang Xiaolian's family wrote a letter to the officials of the Anping County Police Bureau, the People's Procuratorate and the Hengshui City Court. The letter is as follows:

To the Officials of the Anping County Police Bureau, the People's Procuratorate and the Hengshui City Court,

At approximately 3:00 p.m. on October 15, 2010, Sun Yihe and Wang Dan from the Anping County Police Bureau conspired with Hengshui City police officers Yang Shushan and Wang Xinliang to ransack our home. They broke into our house and confiscated personal property including cash totaling an estimated 10,000 yuan. The officials of the police bureau have never shown us the list of confiscated items. They also arrested Ms. Wang Xiaolian and her daughter Ms. Wang Pei [who was later released after the family paid an extortion fee of 19,000 yuan to Sun Yihe]. Strangely though, it was not until November 2010, that the authorities issued her with an “Arrest Notice”.

After the arrest of Wang Xiaolian, her husband also faced constant harassment from the police and their daughter went missing for one month. At this time the family was running a busy grocery store and without the help of Ms. Wang Xiaolian, her husband had to run both the business and the house, while living in constant fear of the police returning and attacking them. At present, Ms. Wang Xiaolian is still being detained at the Anping County Detention Center and she has never been allowed family visits since she was arrested.

Before practicing Falun Gong, Ms. Wang Xiaolian had many physical problems including rheumatoid arthritis, schizophrenia, pain and deformity of the joints, red swollen eyes, and other problems. After practicing Falun Gong, she followed the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. Her ailments disappeared within two months. She truly experienced the joy that Falun Dafa brought her and felt light all over. Every day she treated others with a smile. She became very honest, kind, tolerant and peaceful. Great changes also happened to her family.

Before Falun Gong was persecuted, the Chinese authorities realized that 70 million people were practicing Falun Gong. Were those huge numbers of practitioners unenlightened? More than 11 years have passed, but the persecution is still going on. However, there are still millions of people holding firm belief in Falun Dafa. Are those people unenlightened? Like every Falun Gong practitioner, we have witnessed the wonder of Falun Gong in curing diseases. Moreover, we have become better people as we have raised our moral standards

Those who persecute a righteous Fa and a righteous way are doomed to fail. History is the most righteous judge. All unjust cases will be finally rectified and justice will be returned to innocent people.

Officials and leaders in relevant departments, please follow the principles of “managing the nation according to the law” so as to truly guarantee the citizens' legal rights and return the basic fairness and justice to those who have been harmed.

We sincerely hope that you can listen to your consciousness and truly deal with the case according to the law. Release Ms. Wang Xiaolian unconditionally. Don't help a tyrant to do evil and ruin your own future.

Ms. Wang Xiaolian's family
