Ms. Liu Xinru, a Falun Gong practitioner from Beijing, has been held in the Fengtai District Detention Centre for more than nine months. On March 26th, 2010, the Fengtai District Court put her on trial and attempted to convict her of false charges. Two attorneys defended her with a plethora of evidence clearly showing that the authorities generated fake evidence to frame her. The attorneys asked for Ms. Liu's acquittal and release.

Ms. Liu started practising Falun Gong in 1996. She has been persecuted multiple times for speaking out in favour of Falun Gong. In 2001, she was sentenced to two years in prison.

On the morning of July 16th, 2009, she was about to leave her neighbourhood area to go to work when she was intercepted by the neighbourhood security. The security personnel instructed her to exit her vehicle to check her tire pressure. As soon as she got out of the vehicle, officers from the local police station and the Fengtai District Police Department swarmed in and arrested her. They took her to the Fengtai District Detention Centre.

In March 2010, the Fengtai District Procuratorate publicly announced Ms. Liu's arrest. At 9 a.m. on March 26th, the Fengtai District Court put her on trial, but the proceedings ended without a conviction. Since then, Ms. Liu has remained detained in the Fengtai District Detention Centre.
