(Minghui.org) A woman in Zibo City, Shandong Province, was recently sentenced to three and a half years for refusing to give up her faith in Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Ms. Yu Zhen, a bus driver with the Qilu Petrochemical Company, was arrested in late October 2022. An insider revealed that the police targeted her either for sharing information about Falun Gong online or studying Falun Gong’s teachings with other practitioners. Minghui.org recently confirmed her prison sentence, but other details remain unclear.

Ms. Yu’s 95-year-old father and 87-year-old mother have been relying on her for care, including grocery shopping, doing laundry, house cleaning, and getting medical care. They are now in a dire situation without her.

Prior to her latest sentencing, Ms. Yu was previously arrested on March 24, 2018, and her home was ransacked. She was released on bail on July 7 after nearly four months in the Zhangdian Detention Center.
