Falun Gong Practitioner Yue Guixia Is Facing Trial after One Year of Detention

September 27, 2016 | By a Minghui correspondent in Beijing, China

(Minghui.org) After being detained for over a year, Falun Gong practitioner Yue Guixia now faces trial, even though her case was turned down twice due to lack of evidence.

Ms. Yue was arrested on September 18, 2015, as she distributed Falun Gong materials. She has been held in Pinggu Detention Center ever since. She was handcuffed, shackled and placed in solitary confinement.

Ms. Yue suffered a nervous breakdown and was evaluated at a mental hospital. She was denied medical parole to seek treatment.

Her husband, who suffers from severe diabetes, relied on his wife for his care.

Their son had to quit his job to care for his father for a time until his health stabilized. Even though he managed to find another job, he is overwhelmed by the responsibility.

Their relatives are very concerned and helped to hire an attorney for Ms. Yue. They are all looking forward to seeing her safe return.

Ms. Yue, 50, was a housewife and lived in Beijing. She began practicing Falun Gong in 2004. Her health greatly improved afterwards. Her neck pain, back pain, severe insomnia, dry eye, and memory lapses all disappeared without medication.

She abides by the principles of Falun Gong, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, is considerate of others, and no longer fights for petty gains. She took good care of her husband while he was sick, and her family became more harmonious as well.
