Wife Arrested Months Before Husband’s Prison Release for Their Shared Faith
(Minghui.org) A Meizhou City, Guangdong Province resident was arrested at home on October 19, 2020 for her faith in Falun Gong. The police ransacked Ms. Li Xiufang's residence and confiscated her Falun Gong related items and photo of Falun Gong’s founder.
Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is an ancient spiritual and meditation discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.
Ms. Li’s latest arrest came only a few months before the end of her husband’s five-year term for their shared faith in Falun Gong.
In the past two decades, Ms. Li, her husband, Mr. Zhu Xiansheng, and their daughter Ms. Zhu Surong have been repeatedly arrested and detained.
Both Ms. Li and Mr. Zhu were twice arrested together, in 2008 and 2015, respectively. Although Ms. Li was released both times, Mr. Zhu was sentenced to 5.5 years in the Meizhou Prison following his 2008 arrest and then 5 years in the Sihui Prison after the 2015 arrest.
He is scheduled to be released on December 14, 2020.
