(Minghui.org) Ms. Jin Chengrong, a senior instrumentation engineer in Tianjin, was sentenced for distributing informational flyers about Falun Gong, a mind-body discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.
Ms. Jin, 57, was arrested and had her home ransacked in December 2020 by officers of the Ruijing Police Station. She was held at the Beichen District Detention Center. She was secretly tried in August 2021 and sentenced to three years with a 10,000-yuan fine. The Tianjin City Women’s Prison has denied her family visits since she was taken there.
Ms. Jin used to suffer low blood pressure, breast hyperplasia, chronic cough and thyroid cancer. After taking up Falun Gong in 1996, all of her ailments disappeared. She felt compelled to share her story with people and clarify the facts about Falun Gong, so she often distributed informational materials in her spare time.
Prior to her latest sentencing, she was arrested in January 2007 and sentenced to three years with three years of probation. Her family lived in fear as a result of the repeated persecution against her. Her workplace also reduced her monthly salary to 700 yuan, between May 18, 2007 and May 18, 2010.
