Mother of Canadian Resident Facing Further Prosecution for Her Faith
(Minghui.org) The mother of a Canadian resident was recently indicted and is facing further prosecution in China for not renouncing her faith in Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline being persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.
Ms. Chen Yan, 51, a chemistry teacher at the Ninth Middle School in Beijing, was arrested on December 3, 2018 for passing out calendars with information about Falun Gong. She has been held incommunicado at Shijingshan Detention Center since. The procuratorate recently submitted her case to the Shijingshan District Court and she is soon to stand trial.
Amnesty International has reported on Ms. Chen's case and urged people to contact Wang Chunfeng, the prosecutor in charge of Ms. Chen's case, and Cui Tiankai, the Chinese Ambassador to the United States.
Ms. Chen's daughter Karen, currently residing in Montreal, Canada, is calling for more international support to secure her mother's release.
