According to information collected by Minghui.org, 107 Falun Gong practitioners were sentenced to an average term of 3 years and 9 months for their faith between January and May 2020.
Persecuted for their faith, ten practitioners died as a result of torture and abuse in custody. The remaining seventeen practitioners passed away after suffering years of detention and torture, or as a result of declined health due to the police harassment. Seven of them were over 70 years old.
A Party secretary in a Tianjin village was given a 10,000-yuan reward for reporting a local Falun Gong practitioner, who was subsequently sentenced to a five-year prison term without her family’s knowledge. Ms. Yao Shilan’s latest ordeal was preceded by a prior prison term of three and a half years.
Maintaining the persecution of Falun Gong in China is continually prioritized and funded, even as other functions of society have suffered as a consequence.
Falun Gong practitioners in Germany held a Falun Gong Information Day in downtown Stuttgart on May 30, 2020, to introduce Falun Gong and expose the persecution of innocent practitioners by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Mr. Yang, CEO of a tech company in Taiwan, has been practicing Falun Dafa since March 2020. After personally benefiting from the practice, he couldn’t wait to share it with his employees and hosted a nine-day Falun Dafa workshop.
