(Minghui.org) Three Falun Gong practitioners were sentenced to prison for studying Falun Gong books. On April 4, 2018, Mr. Wang Yuelai was sentenced to five years, Ms. Chen Quanxiu to four years, and Mr. He Genliang to one year.
They were arrested along with eight others while they were all studying Falun Gong books together on January 24, 2018. The police had been monitoring them and tracking their locations through their cellphones. While the other eight practitioners were eventually released, the three named above remained detained and their cases were submitted to the Procuratorate.
The Yueyang County Procuratorate approved their cases in early March, and the Yueyang County Court tried and sentenced them to prison on April 4, 2018.
Mr. Wang Yuelai, in his 50s, started to learn Falun Gong in 2010. His severe stomach problem soon disappeared and he was eager to introduce the practice to his friends. On October 11, 2013, he was arrested for passing out Falun Gong materials to the public. He was detained for several months and subjected to intensive brainwashing sessions.
Ms. Chen Quanxiu, in her 60s, was arrested and detained in August 2012 for practicing Falun Gong.
Mr. He Genliang, in his 40s, was sentenced to three years in prison in March 2005 for practicing Falun Gong. His recent arrest was a huge blow to his elderly mother. As the father of three children, his arrest and sentencing have also caused tremendous difficulties for his wife to raise the kids all by herself.
