Here, we would like to make public incidents that took place in the Longgang District, Shenzhen and had not yet been published on the Minghui/Clearwisdom website.
In October 2009, Ms. Mai Xiumei and her friend, Ms. Hua Hongxia, were out distributing truth-clarification materials when they were arrested and held at the Longgang Detention Center. They were sentenced to three and a half years by Longgang Court and incarcerated at the Guangdong Women's Prison.
In May 2010, a 70-year-old couple, Ms. Chen Zhenrong and her husband, were arrested when they were distributing materials in Buji, Shenzhen.
