Sixty-Five-Year-Old Ms. Jiang Suzhen from Suzhou City Detained

Police from Suzhou City broke into 65-year-old Ms. Jiang Suzhen's home on the morning of August 30th, 2012. She was taken into custody because she had put up posters bearing the messages, “Falun Gong is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

After Ms. Jiang began to practise Falun Gong, all of her illnesses have disappeared. She was grateful to Falun Gong and told others about the benefits of the practice. Her actions are out of her kindness, and a wish to share such a good practice with others. She was also exercising her right to freedom of belief and freedom of speech. The police had no right to arrest her.

Ms. Jiang's husband passed away four years ago, and she was left alone, struggling to survive. Local government officials have never cared about her, and personnel from her neighbourhood committee deprived her of her pension just because she practises Falun Gong. Ms. Jiang has to make a living by doing housekeeping jobs. However, just for speaking the truth, the police broke into her home and arrested her.

Ms. Jiang is still in police custody.
