Woman in her 70s Sentenced to Four Years for Her Faith
(Minghui.org) A woman in her 70s was recently sentenced to four years in prison for her faith in Falun Gong, a mind-body discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party since 1999.
Ms. Geng Wenjing, of Xinji City, Hebei Province, was arrested on August 29, 2019 for passing out informational materials about Falun Gong. The police ransacked her home several times and held her at the Hengshui City Detention Center.
Ms. Geng appeared in the Anping Court on January 17, 2020. The authorities didn’t inform her family of her indictment and court hearing. Her loved ones only learned of the trial when they went to the court themselves to inquire about her case.
Ms. Geng’s family learned of her prison sentence on April 13, 2020. She was transferred to Shijiazhuang Women’s Prison two days later.
