- Wife Sentenced to Four Years in Prison, Husband Serving Eight Year Sentence for Practicing Falun Gong
Ms.Shan Jining had been detained in a forced labor camp for three years. She was sentenced four years in prison for telling people the fact about Falun Gong. Her husband Mr. Wang Desheng was sentenced to four, eight years in prison in 1999, 2005, respectively.
After being detained for over ten months, Hong Kong citizen Ms. Li Yaohua and her daughter were sentenced to prison in Shanghai, leaving her 91 years old father at home alone.
Li Chunhong, the only member who was able to feed the family, is being held in Masanjia Forced Labor Camp with no specific term, where her elder sister was so severely tortured that she developed a mental disorder. Their father was also abused to the verge of death in another forced labor camp.
The police broke into Mr.Yang Zhanjiu's home and also arrested other two Falun Gong practitioners who were visiting him. Six years ago, his wife lost an eyeball when tortured by the police and died in the detention center.
A partial list of Falun Gong practitioners who were persecuted in Yanliang, Xi'an City, the "Aircraft Town" bragged as "Chinese Boeing" in its propaganda.
Clearwisdom.net and its Chinese-language sister-website (Minghui.org) provide first-hand reports about the horrors of the persecution of Falun Gong in China. Dozens of reports are received every day from the victims of torture, the wrongfully imprisoned, and families crippled by the senseless hardship and grief for their loved ones imposed by the persecution. In contrast, the websites also report positive news and events from the more than 80 countries around the world where Falun Gong is practiced, and serve as an online forum for practitioners to share stories of the good things Falun Gong has brought to their lives.
