Hunan Province Practitioner Ms. Luo Hong Sentenced to Four Years in Prison

During a trial on March 3rd, 2009, the Shigu District Court of Hengyang City, Hunan Province and the Hunan Province Court sentenced Ms. Luo Hong to four years in prison. Ms. Luo plans to appeal to a higher court.

During the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, the Hengyang City Domestic Security Section, the Hengyang City 610 Office1, and the Renming Road Police Station arrested Ms. Luo Hong at her home for practising Falun Gong and possessing Falun Gong books. They searched her home, seized her computer, printer, printer paper, Falun Gong books, and other personal belongings, and also froze her bank accounts. Ms. Luo remains imprisoned at the Hengyang City No. 1 Detention Centre.

Ms. Luo has been harassed for several years. In October 1999, she was arrested for practising the Falun Gong exercises at the West Lake Park by officers of the West Lake Police Station. She was detained for a month and a half at the Hengyang City Detention Centre.

In 2000, before boarding a train, Ms. Luo was arrested for "intent to appeal in Beijing" by the Hengyang Railway Police Station. She was detained for a month and a half at the Baishazhou Detention Centre. That same year, she was arrested for demonstrating at Tiananmen Square by officers of the Tiananmen Square Police Station. She was detained for six months at the Baishazhou Detention Centre.

At around 11 a.m. on January 18th, 2001, the Shigu District Residential Committee and the Xiaoxiang Police Station arrested Ms. Luo at her home and, without going through any legal process, jailed her for over a year at the Baimalong Forced Labour Camp in Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province.
