(Minghui.org) A 56-year-old former concrete factory employee is facing prosecution for her faith in Falun Gong, a mind-body discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

The police in the Fanyu District in Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, dispatched officers in four cars to arrest Ms. Liu Jinhuan on May 18, 2020. She has been detained in the Fanyu District Detention Center ever since. The Fanyu District Procuratorate approved her arrest on June 16.

Ms. Liu took up Falun Gong in 1996. Within three short months, her headaches, dizziness, and rheumatic joint pain all disappeared. After the communist regime ordered the persecution of Falun Gong three years later, Ms. Liu and her family’s lives were turned upside down.

The police harassed Ms. Liu on July 23, 1999, and pressured her to appear on TV to give a public statement renouncing Falun Gong. When she refused to comply, the police kept harassing her and then began to monitor her and her phone calls on a daily basis. Her entire family has been living in fear all these years.

In mid-December 1999, Ms. Liu was arrested when she was out of the house. She was detained for 15 days in Shawan Detention Center. When the police ordered her to provide contact information of other practitioners, she to refused to comply.

Ms. Liu was given two years in Chatou Forced Labor Camp in December 2000 and was fired by the concrete factory where she worked.

Agents from 610 Office (an extralegal agency created specifically to persecute Falun Gong) and residential committee staff broke into Ms. Liu’s home in March 2003. She wasn’t at home, so they smashed her furniture and confiscated her Falun Gong books and materials. The 610 Office also ordered plainclothes officers to stay outside to monitor the situation.

As soon as Ms. Liu returned home, she was arrested. The police took her to Guangzhou City Brainwashing Center, where she was held for nine months.

The police and residential committee members continued to harass her at home or through phone calls after she was released.

The police ransacked her home again in January 2006, when she went to her hometown to attend her father’s funeral.
