Having Spent 15 Years in Prison, Sichuan Woman Secretly Sentenced to Another 8 Years

(Minghui.org) A Leshan City, Sichuan Province resident was secretly sentenced to eight years for practicing Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Ms. Zhu Mingrong, 48, was arrested on October 24, 2021 after being reported by a student’s parents for talking to the student about Falun Gong.

While picking her up from Mabian Detention Center and taking her to a local prison, the police said to the detention center that Ms. Zhu was sentenced to eight years either in April or May 2022. Her family has never received any notice about her case.

Since the onset of the persecution, Ms. Zhu has been repeatedly targeted and incarcerated for 15 years for practicing Falun Gong. She was first arrested in October 1999 when she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. She was detained for 15 days and later sentenced to three years. She was given two more prison terms, both six years, in 2003 and 2010, respectively.
