(Minghui.org) The first nine months of 2016 recorded 55 cases of Jilin residents sentenced for refusing to renounce Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline being persecuted by the Chinese communist regime.
Due to the state-imposed informational blockade, the actual number of innocent citizens targeted for their faith is likely to be much higher than reported.
The affected practitioners were given prison terms ranging from 1 to 9 years, with an average of 3.88 years.
It is unclear, though, when the sentenced practitioners were arrested.
