Hebei Man in His 70s Sentenced to One Year for Putting Up Information about Falun Gong

Sept. 11, 2022 |   By a Minghui correspondent in Hebei Province, China

(Minghui.org) A Wuji County, Hebei Province, resident in his 70s was recently sentenced to one year for practicing Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Mr. Li Wuqun was reported twice, in 2020 and 2021, for putting up informational materials about Falun Gong. His home was ransacked both times and his Falun Gong books and related materials confiscated. He was also fined over 10,000 yuan both times. The police attempted to detain him following his arrest in 2020 but relented after two local detention centers rejected his admission.

The police began to harass Mr. Li again in June 2022. They arrested him and held him at the Chengbei Detention Center. The Zhengding County Court sentenced him to one year in early August. The authorities are planning to take him to the Jin County Detention Center.
