Case Description:

( Ms. Shao Ziying and her husband, Mr. Wang Xudong, residents of Liaocheng City, Shandong Province, were repeatedly arrested for their faith in Falun Gong.

She and four other sentenced practitioners were paraded through streets before being taken to Shandong Province Women's Prison.

Ms. Shao was arrested a third time on July 20, 2011 and detained for more than twenty days. Her fourth arrest took place on June 12, 2012, with her detained for one month.

Ms. Shao and her husband were home on March 28, 2018 when more than two dozens of officers broke in and arrested them. The couple was taken to Liaocheng City Detention Center.
