81-year-old Falun Gong Practitioner Faces Trial for Exposing Persecution of Her Faith
(Minghui.org) 81-year-old Ms. Cong Huifen is facing trial for exposing the persecution of her spiritual belief, Falun Gong.
Ms. Cong, from Tianjin, was arrested on October 18, 2017, after being reported to the police for talking to people about Falun Gong. The police ransacked her home and confiscated her Falun Gong materials.
After the police released Ms. Cong on the next morning, they submitted her case to the procuratorate.
Ms. Cong was informed by the procuratorate on January 30, 2018, that her case had been accepted. She hired a lawyer to represent her. Shortly after her lawyer talked to prosecutor Wang Yinglin to defend her innocence, Ms. Cong was called to the Hongqiao District Court on the same afternoon, February 6, and told that a hearing had been scheduled.
