(Minghui.org) Qingdao Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Hou Chengxiang was illegally tried again at Jimo Pudong Detention Center and sentenced to one year and six months in prison on February 21, 2017. She was first tried on April 12, 2016, but no verdict was handed down at the time.

Ms. Hou has severe weight loss because of torture, such that her family could not recognize her. When the family described the persecution, the judges were speechless.

Ms. Hou was arrested on October 6, 2015, for telling people about Falun Gong. She has been incarcerated at the detention center since the arrest. She went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution and was brutally forced-fed.
