Mother of D.C. Resident Tried for Her Faith, Supporters Arrested

November 21, 2016 | By a Minghui correspondent in Liaoning Province

(Minghui.org) A Dalian City resident was tried two days after her son, a resident of Washington, D.C., called for her unconditional release in front of the Chinese Embassy. Some of her supporters were also arrested for trying to attend her trial in Dalian.

Ms. Yuan Xiaoman was seized from home on May 12, 2016 for filing a criminal complaint against former Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin for ordering the persecution of Falun Gong that resulted in her family’s ordeal.

Ms. Yuan, her husband, and their son practice Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The couple had been repeatedly arrested and tortured for their faith since the persecution began in 1999. Their son, Mr. Du Haiqing, later moved to the U.S. to escape the persecution.
