(Minghui.org) Three Falun Gong practitioners in Fuxin City were tried for a second time in Fumeng County Court on April 20, 2015. The prosecution failed to present any valid evidence.

The practitioners were charged with “sabotaging law enforcement with a cult organization,” which is often used by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) court system to falsely prosecute Falun Gong practitioners.

An official ordered the arrest of the practitioners on March 20, 2014, because one had called him to try convince him to stop persecuting practitioners. At the practitioners' first trial on January 27 this year, the defense lawyers provided sound arguments and asked the judges to recuse themselves. After a recess the judge announced an adjournment.

Only the family members of the practitioners were allowed to attend the second trial. Each of them and the two defense lawyers were monitored by two court officers. The courthouse was heavily guarded. Over 300 police officers were mobilized to photograph and impede those who tried to get near the courthouse.

The prosecutor claimed that Mr. Wu Junhe (吴俊和), Mr. Li Feng (李峰), and Mr. Wang Liang (王亮) owned and distributed “a large amount of” Falun Gong literature, but were unable to explain how such materials could “sabotage law enforcement.”

Furthermore, the prosecutor could not produce any physical evidence except for a few photos that no one had seen prior to the trial. The judge repeatedly interrupted the defense lawyers' arguments. When the lawyers questioned the legality of the trial, the judge threatened them.
