Liu Peizhen Sentenced to Eight Years, Nearly Blind from Torture and Abuse

Ms. Liu Peizhen, a practitioner in her sixties, is from the Nanshan District in Shenzhen City. Before she began practising Falun Gong in 1998, she had various diseases. She was practically blind and was unable to raise her drooping eyelids. But after becoming a practitioner, all her diseases vanished. She looked younger too. The principles of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance" also transformed her previously unpleasant demeanour to one that was peaceful and kind.

After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began persecuting Falun Gong, Ms. Liu decided to distribute leaflets explaining the truth about Falun Gong so that the Chinese people could understand the unreasonable persecution and what Falun Gong is really about and show Chinese people how they had been deceived. She used every penny she had to produce leaflets. Every day, she would go out on the street to distribute these materials.

On October 21st, 2004, someone reported Ms. Liu to the police while she was distributing leaflets. Officers from the Nanshan District 610 Office1 and the Nanshan District Police Department arrested her, ransacked her home, and seized her Dafa books, phone book, stamps, and envelopes. Since her arrest, the police have also been harassing her family members and monitoring their phones. Two days after her arrest, Ms. Liu managed to escape from police custody, but she became homeless as a result. The police responded by placing her on their "most wanted" list.

At around 9:00 a.m. on April 15th, 2005, officers from the Nanshan District 610 Office and the Xili Police Station (under the Nanshan District Police Department) burst into the property where Ms. Liu Peizhen and her husband were living and arrested them both. They also seized Ms. Liu's computer and her materials exposing the persecution. Because her husband was very old and infirm, he was released the following day. Ms. Liu, however, was held at the Nanshan District Detention Centre.

In November 2005, the Nanshan District Court held a trial for Ms. Liu and three other Falun Gong practitioners from Shenzhen City. The following April, Ms. Liu was sentenced to eight years in prison for distributing materials exposing the persecution. She is currently being held at the Guangzhou City Women's Prison.

It is impossible to express how much pain and torture Ms. Liu has suffered during the last three years. According to her family, Ms. Liu is almost blind, so she is unable to read anything. She is also unable to care for herself without assistance.
