(Minghui.org) A 74-year-old woman is scheduled to appear in court on October 20, 2020, for refusing to give up her faith in Falun Gong, a mind-body discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Ms. Sun Yanzhi, of Fushun City, Liaoning Province, was arrested on January 9, 2020, for distributing informational materials about Falun Gong. Although she was released that night, the police returned on February 4 to search her home. They attempted to confiscate her Falun Gong books but relented when she protested. The officers took her Falun Gong magazines instead.

Ms. Sun was summoned to the police station on June 10. She urged the officers not to follow the communist regime in persecuting Falun Gong.

She was recently notified by the Dongzhou Court of her hearing date.
