Wrongfully sentenced to seven years after six years of forced labour10/10/2014
(Minghui.org) Ms Yan Xiling, 56, from Qingzhou City, Shandong Province, spent six years in a forced labour camp. She was recently secretly sentenced to seven years and is now in custody in the Jinan Women's Jail.
Arrested and wrongfully sentenced to seven years
On February 26th, 2014, officers from the Qingzhou City Domestic Security Division and the Beiguan Police Station broke into Ms Yan Xiling’s home in Xinyuan Residential Quarters, Wangfu, Qingzhou City. They confiscated her personal belongings, including her computers and Falun Dafa books. They arrested her and took her to the Weifang City Detention Centre, leaving her dependent elderly mother without care.
The Qingzhou City Police Department, the State Prosecutor and the court wanted to try Ms Yan on May 15th, but she was too debilitated by what she had already endured, and they didn't want to be held responsible for her health. The Qingzhou Court later secretly sentenced Ms Yan to seven years and put her in the Jinan Women's Jail.
Six years of forced labour
In 2001, Ms Yan was forced to become homeless. She was quickly arrested by the Qingzhou Police and sent to Wangcun Women's Forced Labour Camp for three years.
After she was released in October 2004, police officers Xu Wende and Zuo Hengfa arrested her and put her in the Qingzhou City Brainwashing Centre for over a month.
In the spring of 2005, Zuo Hengfa and other officers tried several times to arrest Ms Yan, but failed. She left home to avoid arrest.
Ms Yan was reported to the Qingzhou Police on the afternoon of June 19th, 2006, when she went to another practitioner's home. She was arrested and sentenced to three years in Wangcun Women's Forced Labour Camp. She was forced to watch videos and listen to recordings defaming and attacking Dafa. She also had to listen to the police and traitors spreading poisonous defamation. She was not allowed to sleep or take a shower. She had to stand until her feet were badly swollen. For over ten days, she was not allowed to sleep. Before long, she was in critical condition.
Ms Yan came from the Wangfu New Village in the Zhaode Neighbourhood of Qingzhou City. After she began practising Falun Gong in 1997, she became free of illness. She follows Truthfulness, Compassion-Forbearance to be a good person. Those who know her say that she is very kind.
Since her release in 2009, Ms Yan Xiling had been taking care of her mother who is over 80 and can hardly take care of herself. This law-biding citizen has now been wrongfully arrested and sentenced to seven years.
