(Minghui.org) An 80-year-old woman was recently sentenced to 1.5 years for her faith in Falun Gong.

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. Gao Baorong, of Yangquan City, Shanxi Province, was arrested and had her home ransacked on August 28, 2019, after being reported for distributing informational materials about Falun Gong.

The police submitted her case to the Jiaoqu Procuratorate in October 2019. It was recently confirmed by Minghui.org that she had been convicted by the Jiaoqu Court and transferred from the Yangquan City Detention Center to the Shanxi Women’s Prison.
