Short Summary
According to CW (2 March 17, 5 March 17), on July 24, 2016, public security authorities from Chengjiang county and Hongta district, Yuxi municipality, Yunnan province, took into custody Falun Gong practitioners Deng Cuiping, Li Qiongzhen, Pu Zhiming, Li Li, and Qin Liyuan. Authorities held the 5 in Chengjiang until July 28, when they transferred Pu to the Eshan County PSB Detention Center and the other 4 to the Hongta PSB Detention Center. PSB officials formally arrested all five on September 1 on the charge of "organizing and using a cult to undermine implementation of the law." The Eshan County People's Court in Yuxi tried the five on February 16, 2017, and on February 24 sentenced Deng to 6 years in prison and a 10,000 RMB fine and Li Qiongzhen to 4 years and a 6,000 RMB fine. The court sentenced Pu to 3 years, suspended for 5 years, and did not impose criminal punishment on Li Li and Qin, reportedly releasing them on bail; officials pressured the 3 to confess and renounce Falun Gong (Kaiwind, 3 March 17). Authorities detained the five after they publicly distributed materials promoting Falun Gong at several locations in Yuxi in May and July 2016 (CW, 26 January 17). Deng reportedly served 3 years in prison from 2006 to 2009 in connection with her practice of Falun Gong.
