83-Year-Old Woman to Face Trial for Using Bank Note Exposing the Persecution of Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) An 83-year-old woman was arrested on February 14 this year for paying for groceries with a bank note printed with messages exposing the persecution of Falun Gong.
Ms. Kang Yinzhi (康银芝) exhibited symptoms of a stroke and passed out during interrogation the night of her arrest at the Neijiang City Detention Center. The Chengxi Police Station, which was responsible for her arrest, summoned her children to sign paperwork releasing them from potential liability.
The police released Ms. Kang on medical parole, but demanded that her family remain on telephone standby.
The Zhongqu Court issued a document on December 18 informing Ms. Kang of her upcoming trial on December 25. Guo Jinping was the assigned judge and Zhang Xinyuan the clerk.
Ms. Kang was indicted with a charge of “using a cult organization to sabotage law enforcement,” a pretext commonly used by the Chinese Communist Party to frame and sentence Falun Gong practitioners. In fact, freedom of belief and practice is protected by the Chinese Constitution.
