Falun Gong Practitioners Mr. Chen Xiaojun and Ms. Liu Aihua Illegally Detained for More Than a Year
(Minghui.org) Although it has been almost a year since the court did not find Mr. Chen Xiaojun and Ms. Liu Aihua guilty as charged, the two are still being detained.
Falun Gong practitioners Mr. Chen Xiaojun and Ms. Liu Aihua, a friend helping his family with household chores, were illegally arrested on November 10, 2012 by the Zhuhai City Political and Legal Affairs Committee. They have now been detained for a year and three months.
When the Hongzhou Court in Zhuhai City put the two practitioners on trial on June 25, 2013, their lawyers' thorough defense of their innocence left the court unable to pass a guilty verdict.
By law, the two should have been released when the court did not find them guilty as charged. But seven months have passed and they are still being detained. The relevant legal departments have also failed to give any proper response.
The practitioners' relatives have contacted the government offices many times to get the two practitioners released, but the response is always, “We are not in a position to decide” or there is some attempt to shift responsibility.
Mr. Chen Xiaojun's son was less than a year old when his father was taken away. Now the boy is two years old and he often calls for his daddy.
This is Ms. Liu Aihua eighth arrest, and her health is said to be in grave danger. Her blood pressure is 190. Her children have asked to bail her out but cannot get any response from the departments concerned. Her family is very concerned that she may die.
