(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Hao Xiangtang was illegally sentenced to five years in prison by the Qiaodong District Court on July 18, 2014. The judge ignored the fact that the police abused their power and fabricated evidence.

Mr. Hao was arrested at a train station on July 14, 2013. During the next 38 days after his arrest, he was taken to three different police stations, interrogated, and tortured. He was shocked with electric batons, deprived of sleep, handcuffed to a metal chair, and his feet were stabbed with a screwdriver.
