(Minghui.org) Shortly after Ms. Li Qun was released from serving a four-year term for practicing Falun Gong, the Yanshan County, Yunnan Province resident was arrested again and sentenced to six years.

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

Ms. Li, a former employee of the Yanshan County Power Bureau, was arrested in 2021, shortly after she finished serving a four-year term. Details about her latest sentencing aren’t clear.

This is the fourth time that Ms. Li has been sentenced since the onset of the persecution in 1999. 

Ms. Li was first arrested in 2004 and sentenced to four years. She was fired by her workplace after she was released on May 22, 2008. She made a living by selling merchandise in a market booth.

For talking to her customers about Falun Gong, Ms. Li was arrested again on April 20, 2009 and held in the Yanshan County Detention Center. She was force fed for going on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. The local court sentenced her to five years in Yunnan Province No. 2 Women’s Prison two weeks later.

Ms. Li’s next arrest was in June 2017. She was sentenced to four years by the Wenshan City Court on September 1, 2017 and taken to a prison around the 2018 Chinese New Year.
