(Minghui.org) Mr. Gao Jun was arrested at home by officers from Liaoyang Police Department on July 5, 2017. He was tried three times by Liaoyang County Court, sentenced to nine years in prison, and fined 50,000 yuan on January 21, 2018. He is appealing the verdict.

Mr. Gao’s arrest left his 80-year-old mother home alone. When he was held at Liaoning Detention Center, he attempted to persuade the guards not to participate in the Communist Party’s persecution of Falun Gong. When the guards ordered him to sign documents, he just wrote, “Falun Dafa is good.”

Mr. Gao was tried on November 3, 2017, November 23, 2017, and January 21, 2018.

During the trial, the prosecutor presented banners with the words “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” as evidence. The banners, however, had been fabricated by Liaoyang domestic security agents. The police also confiscated 42,800 yuan from Mr. Goa at the time of his arrest. The money was also presented as evidence.

Mr. Gao lives in Lilingzi, Anshan City, Liaoning Province. He had many bad habits before learning Falun Gong. After he started to practice, his illnesses were healed. He cultivated his character and became kind and considerate. He has also been taking care of his mentally ill mother.
