(Minghui.org) A doctor who was married for three months was arrested for speaking out about the persecution of his faith. His wife was dealt another heavy blow when he was sentenced to three years a year later.

Mr. Yao Hao, an anesthesiologist at Dongyang City People’s Hospital in Zhejiang Province, took up Falun Gong not long ago and was arrested at home on January 27, 2021. The police claimed that he was reported for distributing Falun Gong materials on January 20 and located him through the surveillance network.

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Mr. Yao was taken to the Dongyang City Detention Center on January 28 and had his arrest approved on February 11, 2021. He was sentenced to three years with a 10,000 yuan fine in late November and has been taken to the Zhejiang Province No.2 Prison in February 2022.

According to information collected by Minghui.org, at least 126 Falun Gong practitioners in Zhejiang were targeted for their faith in 2021. Two of them died as a result, 13 were sentenced, 75 were arrested, 14 were harassed and 22 taken to brainwashing centers.
