On March 14th, 2009, Falun Gong practitioners Feng Feng and Deng Tianyu from Jingzhou City, Hubei Province, were sentenced to eight and four years' imprisonment, respectively.
Mr. Feng was young and strong. Now his hair has turned grey and he is paralysed from the waist down. Mr. Deng has completely lost the sight in his right eye. He can see little with his left eye. Mr. Feng also has limited vision in his left eye. Both of them were tortured until they could no longer take care of themselves.
The two men were arrested on July 5th, 2008, right before the Beijing Olympics, by officers from the No. 1 Section (the Public Security Section) of the Shashi Branch of the Jingzhou City Public Security Bureau. They have been detained in Shashi Detention Centre ever since. On January 15th, 2009, Shashi District Court heard the charge against them: "Using an illegal organization to break the law." Feng and Deng's family members hired three human rights lawyers - Jiang Tianyong, Han Zhiguang, and Li Chunfu from Beijing - to defend their innocence with a convincing argument based on reason and evidence. However, the court called for an adjournment to "wait for a joint discussion."
On March 14th, the lawyers received a copy of the "verdict," which was mailed to Beijing from Shashi on March 9th. The family members heard of the court decisions on March 12th through a phone call from the detention centre. Mr. Feng and Mr. Deng were sentenced to eight and four years' imprisonment, respectively.
