Disabled Veteran Wrongfully Sentenced for Sharing Benefits of Practicing Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) Yan Shouli, a 70-year-old disabled veteran from Kangping County, Shenyang City, was illegally arrested and sentenced for sharing his personal experience of practicing Falun Gong.
Mr. Yan, a kind man, is a veteran who became disabled after a serious leg fracture. His wife became the sole supporter of the family.
After he began practicing Falun Gong, Mr. Yan's leg was restored to health and he no longer relied on a cane. He became open-minded, more considerate and faithfully adhered to Falun Gong's principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Mr. Yan was talking to another disabled person about his recovery and personal experience of practicing Falun Gong on November 12, 2018. A local resident, Li Qingyong overheard the conversation and deceived Mr. Yan into going to the Zhenbei Police Station by saying that he was a policeman.
Under orders of Dai Guoqing, Deputy Director of the Kangping Police Department, and Chang Xiangmin, Chief of the Zhenbei Police Station, officers Yu Hongxu and Yang Fan distorted the facts and accused Mr. Yan of exposing the Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Gong.
Sheng Hongjuan and officers from the Kangping County Court created a defamation case by charging Mr. Yan under the pretext of “using a cult organization to undermine implementation of the law.” They sentenced Mr. Yan to 18 months in prison and fined him 5,000 yuan. Mr. Yan has appealed his case to the judiciary.
