Guangdong Practitioner Ms. Qiu Hannong Sentenced to Prison for Her Faith
(Minghui.org) Ms. Qiu Hannong, in her 60s, from Chuantang Town, Dongyuan County, Heyuan City, Guangdong Province, was tried by the Yuancheng District Court on April 4, 2019. She was sentenced to four years and three months in prison and fined 3,000 yuan. She has appealed the judgment.
Officers from the Dongyuan County Domestic Security Division broke into Ms. Qiu’s home and ransacked it on September 9, 2018. Two days later, she was arrested at home by the officers just after 6:00 p.m.
Three of Ms. Qiu’s family members went to the Dongyuan County Police Department and demanded to see her on September 21, 2018. They were intimidated and expelled by the officers. When they protested, a group of officers violently put the three family members in handcuffs and detained them until 4:00 p.m. that day.
Ms. Qiu was held at the Dongyuan County Detention Center. Her family went many times to the police department and the Dongyuan County Political and Legal Affairs Committee to demand that she be released, but to no avail.
On April 4, 2019, Ms. Qiu was given a four-year-and-three-month prison term and fined 3,000 yuan.
Ms. Qiu was imprisoned twice before this: The first time was in August 2005, when she was detained at the Longgang District Detention Center in Shenzhen City. The second time was on August 3, 2013 after she was arrested at home by officers from the Dongyuan County Police Department and the Chuantang Police Station. The officers ransacked her home and confiscated a TV set and other personal items. She was given three years of forced labor.
