77-Year-Old Mr. Sun Yunchuan Fined and Sentenced to Prison
(Minghui.org) Mr. Sun Yunchuan, a 77-year-old Falun Gong practitioner from Jiaozhou City, Shandong Province, was sentenced to six months in prison and fined 5,000 yuan for his faith. The presiding judge involved in the case was Zhao Yutao.
Mr. Sun, from Huangjiatun Village, was arrested by officers from the Ligezhuang Town Police Station in 2014 for distributing Falun Gong pamphlets. The officers ransacked his home and confiscated Falun Dafa books and other personal belongings. He was taken to a detention center, which refused to admit him after he failed the physical exam. The officers then took Mr. Sun back home and placed him under residential surveillance.
The police later fabricated false evidence to frame Mr. Sun. The Jiaozhou City Procuratorate delivered a notification of criminal prosecution to Mr. Sun around February 2015. They intended to cite “Article 300” of the Criminal Law to justify persecuting the elderly man.
The Jiaozhou Court has recently revisited the case, citing Mr. Sun's Falun Gong-related arrest a few years ago. They ordered the Ligezhuang Police Station to arrest Mr. Sun on August 22, 2018.
Mr. Sun was taken to a hospital in Jiaozhou City for a physical exam. He failed the exam, so the officers took him to a hospital in Qingdao City. Mr. Sun still did not meet the physical requirements for detention. He ended up being taken to the Jiaozhou City Detention Center anyway.
Zhao Yutao, president of the Criminal Tribunal of Jiaozhou City Court, was directly responsible for Mr. Sun's arrest.
