Hebei Woman Released from Unlawful Detention After Efforts by Her Family and Lawyer
(Minghui.org) A Langfang City resident was released on February 1, 2017 after nearly two months of detention.
Ms. Chao Dongmei was arrested on December 5, 2016 after being reported for talking to people about Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline being persecuted by the Chinese communist regime. The local Procuratorate issued a formal arrest warrant 11 days later.
Ms. Chao’s family wrote letters to the police, reminding them of the illegality of the persecution of Falun Gong and urging them to release her.
Ms. Chao’s lawyer also told the police that she broke no law by spreading information about Falun Gong. The police ultimately issued a decision to release her.
