Ms. Liang Guifen's Family Persecuted
Ms. Liang's family was persecuted during the past ten plus years. Her husband, Mr. Li Kun, and her son Mr. Li Xinhua, 18, a high school student, were arrested in January 2002. Mr. Li Kun was sentenced to a 14 year prison term, and Mr. Li Xinhua was sentenced to a five year prison term. Mr. Li Kun is still being held in Sihui Prison.
Ms. Liang has been the main support at home for the past 11 years. She not only takes care of her parents-in-law and children, but also works in the fields. It's been hard for her to support the whole family. Her father-in-law was depressed because of the incarcerations of his son and grandson and passed away in 2007.
