(Minghui.org) A Handan City, Hebei Province, woman was sentenced to three years and fined 3,000 yuan on January 4, 2022, for her faith in Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.
Ms. Li Lianye was reported by the secretary of Dashe Town on June 30, 2021, for distributing informational materials about Falun Gong there the night before. The authorities identified the license plate of Ms. Li’s car and located her residence from searching surveillance videos.
A group of officers arrested Ms. Li at home at 8 p.m. on July 15, 2021. Her private vehicle and a cellphone were confiscated. After being interrogated at the Tushan Village Police Station, she was taken to the Handan City No. 3 Detention Center.
The police returned to Ms. Li’s home on July 17 and searched her basement. Based on information from her cellphone, they found her other residence and ransacked it on July 18.
The Ci County Court held a video hearing of Ms. Li’s case at the detention center on December 6, 2021. Her lawyer entered a not guilty plea for her. The judge announced the verdict on January 4, 2022.
