Ms. Hu Huoying from Duchang County Detained for 100 Days and Facing Trial
(Minghui.org) Ms. Hu Huoying, a 61-year-old woman from Duchang County, Jiangxi Province, has been arrested by Tan Xinmin and other officers from the Duchang Domestic Security Division. She has been detained in the Duchang Detention Center for 100 days. Her attorney requested her release or at least bail while awaiting trial. However, the police refused both requests. Ms. Hu went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. She was forcibly taken to a hospital for intravenous feeding.
In October 2012, the police department submitted Ms. Hu's case to the Public Prosecution Section of the Duchang Procuratorate. On November 6, 2012, under her attorney's strong insistence, the officials reluctantly allowed him to look at the case documents, but they did not allow him to make copies. An official said to the attorney, “How dare you accept a case involving Falun Gong?”
Ms. Hu Huoying is a retired cadre of the Duchang Shipyard. She started to practice Falun Gong in 1997. The illnesses that had plagued her for decades disappeared soon after that.
During the thirteen years of persecution by the CCP, Ms. Hu Huoying was arrested and detained five times because she kept practicing Falun Gong. She was detained in the Jiujiang Forced Labor Camp for one year. At that time, her husband was sick in bed and could not take care of himself. Her neighbors and colleagues collected 78 signatures in a guarantee letter to allow her to go home to take care of her husband. However, Chen Zhengchu, Director of the 610 Office at that time, rejected the request and threatened the people who had signed the letter. Ms. Hu's husband eventually passed away at the age of 60. On the morning of February 29, 2008, Ms. Hu went grocery shopping and was surrounded by the police, who were staking out her home. She was subsequently sentenced to four and a half years in prison. She was detained in the Jiangxi Provincial Women's Prison for four years and severely tortured both physically and mentally.
On the morning of August 4, 2012, Ms. Hu Huoying was arrested by police again while grocery shopping. At noon, Tan Xinmin, Chen Weiping and other policemen ransacked her home and took away a laptop, printer, satellite receiver, paper cutter, binding machine, and other items. According to documents from the police department, on August 4, 2012, at 10 a.m., a patrol officer saw Ms. Hu Huoying distributing Falun Gong materials at Baiyang Street. They called Hong Liu, chief of the Duchang Domestic Security Division, immediately. The domestic security division dispatched people to follow her at once. When Ms. Hu gave Falun Gong materials to Zhan Tingfeng, who was passing by, the plainclothes police immediately arrested both of them. They searched Zhan Tingfeng and found Falun Gong DVDs and brochures. They also found two DVDs of The Nine Commentaries and 25 copies of a Falun Gong brochure in Ms. Hu's handbag.
Ms. Hu has been detained for more than three months. She is facing a criminal trial.
