At 9:00 a.m. on April 23rd, the Xiong County Court in Hebei Province tried Falun Gong practitioner Zhao Wuhu of Anxin County. In court, the prosecutor said many things that had no legal basis. The spectators said that the prosecutor's conduct was shameful.

Mr. Zao Wuhu was an excellent worker, and was rated a superior performer several times. He has been detained in the Xiong County Detention Centre since his arrest by officers from the Xiong County Police Department on September 28th, 2009.

Xiong County Deputy District Attorney Su Guoqing served as the prosecutor, and the deputy director of the criminal justice division of the court, Ma Xianmin, served as the presiding judge. Mr. Zhao's attorney pled not guilty and argued for the defendant based on current Chinese law. He said that Falun Gong is not a cult, there is no law that says that Falun Gong is a cult, and everything that Falun Gong does is legal.

During the argument, Su Guoqing requested that the defendant provide evidence to demonstrate that Falun Gong is not a cult. The attorney rejected this and said, "It is the prosecutor who needs to show that Falun Gong is a cult. Mr. Su's request is groundless and reflects his lack of basic knowledge of law." The evidence that Mr. Su presented was full of holes and conflicting points, and when questioned, his explanation did not make any sense at all.

Practitioner Mr. Zhao Wuhu was smiling throughout the proceedings in spite of the difficult situation he was in. He had intended to describe his experience of practising Falun Gong and the benefits he obtained during his turn to speak as a defendant, but was repeatedly stopped by Su. Mr. Zhao finally said that he hoped that they would all realise that Falun Gong is good. He returned the transcript that he was not allowed to finish reading to the court staff.

People present in the courtroom respected Mr. Zhao's noble demeanour and said that his behaviour showed that he was thinking of others and was truly selfless.
