(Minghui.org) The defense attorney for Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Jin Ruiling met with the officials handling her case at the Dachang County Procuratorate on June 23, 2014.

Attorney Wang explained that Ms. Jin, who has been detained for three months, was merely exercising her legal right to have a spiritual belief and to tell others about it. The attorney said that the pamphlets she was handing out clarified the facts about Falun Gong and did not harm anyone. Therefore, Ms. Jin was innocent.Attorney Wang later visited Ms. Jin at the Sanhe Detention Center.

Details of the Arrest

Ms. Jin, 62, a retired bank employee, was passing out pamphlets in the neighboring towns with two other practitioners, Ms. Liu Xiuxiang and Ms. Cheng Ying, when they were arrested on March 29, 2014.

The next morning, deputy director Sun Zhigang of the Dachang County Police Department and chief Wang Qinhan of the Domestic Security Division sentenced Ms. Cheng to six days of detention, and Ms. Liu and Ms. Jin each to eight days.

Their homes were ransacked that afternoon. Ms. Liu's 80-year-old mother was at home at the time of the ransacking and was traumatized by the intrusion. Ms. Jin's home was ransacked three times in two days. The police confiscated her computer, printer, copier, Falun Gong books, and other personal items. The police did not show any identification or warrant during the searches.

Ms. Cheng and Ms. Liu were transferred to the Langfang Brainwashing Center a week later. Ms. Cheng was detained over a month. Ms. Liu was held in detention for two and a half months. Both of them have since been released.

Ms. Jin was taken to the Sanhe Detention Center and has not been released.
