(Minghui.org) Ms. You Xiuying, 72, was arrested by officers from the Putuo District Domestic Security Division on the morning of August 26, 2016. Her home was ransacked and her personal belongings, including many Falun Gong books were confiscated. She has been held in the Putuo Detention Center for more than 100 days.

Officers from the Putuo Domestic Security Division fabricated her case and transferred it to the Putuo Procuratorate. A lawyer has been hired to defend her.

The main individuals involved in persecuting Ms. You are Wang Junye and Yin Bo from Changshoulu Police Station, and Zhai Lihong from the Putuo District Domestic Security Division of the Putuo Police Department.

Ms. You has previously been sentenced to a forced labor camp twice for her belief in Falun Gong.

Her younger sister Ms. You Xiuyun was once detained in 2006. Ms. You went to the detention center to demand her sister's release, but was taken into custody instead, and later sentenced to one year of forced labor.

Ms. You Xiuying was in poor health before she began practicing Falun Gong. She used to suffer from Hepatitis B, gastrointestinal problems, constipation and oral ulcers.

She conducted herself according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance after she began practicing and her illnesses soon disappeared. Her family and friends also mentioned that she became kinder, more patient, respectful and took better care of her siblings.

Her 78-year-old husband is in poor health and relies on her to care for him. He had lymph node surgery and also suffered bleeding in his stomach. He had to be taken to the hospital six or seven times, and was in critical condition each time. He also had two heart stents installed.

Since Ms. You has been arrested, he's had difficulty taking care of himself.
