Harbin Woman Emaciated After Nine Months of Detention for Her Faith
(Minghui.org) Ms. Ren Xiuyun, 69, was extremely emaciated and exhausted when she was released from nine months of detention for practicing Falun Gong, a mind-body improvement system persecuted by the communist regime since 1999.
Her husband, who was arrested together with her on March 1, 2018 at a train station, was deceived and intimidated by the police. He didn't allow Ms. Ren to contact her practitioner friends after she was released on December 1.
It was reported the police targeted Ms. Ren after she was flagged as a Falun Gong practitioner while going through security check at the train station. The police detained her after finding Falun Gong music in her cellphone. They also ransacked her home and confiscated her Falun Gong books and other related materials. She was sentenced to nine months in prison on August 20 by Daowai District Court.
