(Minghui.org) A Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province resident was sentenced to 1.5 years on November 26, 2021 for her faith in Falun Gong, a mind-body discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Ms. Jian Fengqiong, 60, was recorded by surveillance cameras in mid-November 2020 distributing Falun Gong informational materials in the neighborhood she had just moved to one month before. The local police and residential committee staff members soon came to harass her.

As Ms. Jian refused to write a statement to renounce Falun Gong, she was arrested on November 24 and held in the Longgang District Detention Center. She was sentenced to 1.5 years with a 3,000-yuan fine by the Yantian District Court on November 26, 2021. It is not clear whether she had been taken to prison by the time of writing.

Prior to her latest sentencing, Ms. Jian was given three years of forced labor in 2001 for not giving up Falun Gong.
