Falun Gong Practitioners Liu Youlian and Li Guiying from Huizhou City, Guangdong Province Sentenced to Prison
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Liu Youlian from Huizhou City, Guangdong Province was recently illegally sentenced to four years imprisonment and was taken to Guangzhou Women's Prison. Her current whereabouts are unknown. Ms. Li Guiying was sentenced to two years and two months imprisonment, and is still being detained at the Gutang'ao Detention Cetner in Huizhou. Ms. Li, in her sixties, has become emaciated, and the condition of her health is alarming.
When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials arrested the Falun Gong practitioners, they displayed a so-called “warrant”; however, it did not list the names of the practitioners, nor the name of the official that authorized the arrest. When the local Party court held a trial of the practitioners, they did not notify their families. Neither did they notify them after a “verdict” had been reached (They later lied about having sent out a notice).
CCP organizations in Huizhou have threatened a number of lawyers' offices that they are “not allowed to take on cases related to Falun Gong or to provide any legal assistance to Falun Gong practitioners”. Some lawyers know that practitioners are innocent and that they can theoretically defend them. However, if they were to defend them, they would face threats from the local Public Security Bureau. Their phones would be tapped and eventually their licenses would be revoked, meaning they would have trouble making a living. Therefore they dare not take such cases.
Prior to the beginning of the persecution in July 1999, there were nearly one hundred practitioners in Weiguoyuan of the Weiguo Machinery Factory District in Huizhou. They had established sites for studying Falun Dafa books and for group practice. After the persecution began, the Huizhou 610 Office and other CCP organizations started arresting Falun Gong pactitioners at the Weiguo Machinery Factory. They forced them to turn in their Falun Dafa books, detained them for brainwashing, and monitored and followed them.
This year, someone named Cui Yuqi was incited to report on Falun Gong practitioners who publicly clarified the facts about Falun Gong. Because he collaborated with the CCP in its campaign against Falun Gong, he received regular payments.
