Arrested While Visiting a Relative, Jiangxi Man Secretly Sentenced to Three Years in Prison
(Minghui.org) When Mr. Geng Decheng's wife went to inquire about his case on August 7, 2019, she learned that her husband had just been sentenced to three years in prison four days ago for his faith in Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.
Fu Shuhua, the head of Jinxi County Domestic Security Office in Jiangxi Province, said that Mr. Geng was sentenced by Linchuan Intermediate Court in Fuzhou City, Jiangxi Province.
Mr. Geng, a resident of Yingtan City, Jiangxi Province, had travelled 70 miles to Jinxi County in Fuzhou City to visit a relative when he was arrested on February 27, 2019.
When Mr. Geng's wife demanded to know why she wasn't informed of the court hearing, Fu claimed that she had attempted to call her, but no one answered the phone.
Mr. Geng's wife next went to Jinxi County Detention Center to deliver clothes to her husband. The guards denied having any knowledge of his sentencing. Only one security personnel said he overheard people talking about Mr. Geng's prison term.
Mr. Geng's wife didn't stay at the detention center for too long, because she had to rush home to take care of their daughter, Weiwei, who had suffered a mental breakdown after witnessing repeated home-ransacking, arrests and detention of her parents for their faith in Falun Gong when she was still a little girl.
When the police ransacked Mr. Geng's home on February 28, 2019 following his latest arrest, they even confiscated his daughter's flash drive with her favorite music. She was so terrified that her face turned pale and she began to mumble nonsense to herself.
