(Minghui.org) Ms. Li Runfang's father gave evidence in the Shanxi Supreme Court, via video link, on January 20, 2015.

He told the court how his daughter, a Falun Gong practitioner, had been illegally arrested and had her home ransacked and was not given a fair trial.

Ms. Li's experiences while in detention have been reported on the Minghui website many times.

The court was told how Ms. Li had been mistreated in prison and that her father had been denied the right to visit her for nine months.

According to other practitioners who recently left the prison, Ms. Li was often held in solitary confinement.

She had been arrested for her belief, because the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) claims that Falun Gong is “a cult.” However, Mr. Li argued that there is no current Chinese law that explicitly states that Falun Gong is a cult.

The Supreme Court responded by saying that courts nationwide are executing “notices” from the Supreme Court and the Supreme Procuratorate. If they deviate from these “notices,” they will lose their jobs.

As Ms. Li's father continued, the video link was abruptly terminated.

Ms. Li's father said that he had been petitioning for his daughter's release for the past four years and has visited all levels of the court system in his area.

He remained determined and said, “I will continue my efforts! More people need to know about the persecution my daughter has suffered and the corruption of China's judicial system.”

Ms. Li Runfang, in her 40s, is detained in the Shanxi Yuci Women's Prison. She was arrested on July 13, 2010, and sentenced to six years in prison.
