30 Falun Gong Practitioners in China Sentenced to Prison in September 2019 for Refusing to Renounce Their Faith

According to information compiled by Minghui.org, 30 Falun Gong practitioners were confirmed to have been sentenced to prison in September 2019, for their faith.

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a spiritual practice centered on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Since the Chinese communist regime started persecuting the practice in July 1999, many practitioners have been subjected to arrest and detention, imprisonment, torture, forced labor, and even organ harvesting.

Some of the practitioners were sentenced for studying Falun Gong books together, while most others were convicted for raising awareness about the persecution of their faith, including distributing informational materials or talking to people about it.

The practitioners who have been sentenced come from 17 cities in 12 provinces and municipalities in China. Prison terms ranged from 1 to 10 years, with an average of 3.87 years.

Seven of the practitioners are 65 years or older. In particular, Ms. Feng Chunying, 80, of Jinan City, Shandong Province, was sentenced to two years by the Changqing Court on September 10, 2019.

Seventeen practitioners had money extorted directly by the police or were fined by the courts for a total of 231,110 yuan – averaging 13,594 yuan per person.

Due to the information blockade in China, the number of Falun Gong practitioners who were sentenced cannot always be reported in a timely manner, nor is all the information readily available.

As more and more lawyers step forward to represent the practitioners and enter not guilty pleas for them, the authorities are also trying to block the lawyers' defenses.
