Ms. Wang Yuluan, a disabled woman and resident from Anping County, Hebei Province, was arrested by police from the Anping County National Security Division on October 15th, 2010, because she insisted on practising Falun Gong. Judge Zhu Huiqing at the Anping County Court sentenced her to seven years in prison in June 2011. Wang Yuluan's family decided to sue Zhu Huiqing.

The Anping County Court secretly opened a session and heard Wang Yuluan's case on June 15th, 2011. Wang's family did not receive any legal documents or written notices from the court, nor any oral notification of requesting a defence attorney. This resulted in Wang's family not being able to sit in the court. Her family asked an attorney from Beijing to defend her plea of not guilty. However, the court denied the attorney's involvement and appointed an attorney to to defend her with a guilty plea. The court sentenced her to seven years in prison on October 3rd, 2011.

Wang Yuluan's family went to the court and requested the court verdict document on October 10th. Yet, Judge Zhu hid from them and did not want to meet Wang's family with the intent of delaying Wang's appeal. Up until 4:00 p.m. on the last day to appeal, Zhu Huiqing did not show up to see Wang's family and attorney, even though Zhu promised to hand the family the verdict paper. Finally, under the family attorney's strong request, Zhu Huiqing received Wang's appeal paper.

Ms. Wang's disabilities cause her great difficulty. Her arms are stiff and cannot bend, so she is unable to take care of daily tasks. At meal time she has to pour her food onto a flat plate and then licks up the food with mouth. Steamed buns have to be broken into very little pieces for her because her teeth are too weak to bite the food. When she washes her face she has to wet the towel, leave it on a flat area, and then put her face on the towel to wash. To brush her hair, she has to use a comb attached to a long wooden stick that reaches her head. Her family has to help her put on her clothes. Using the toilet is also very difficult for her. Consider this: a disabled person who cannot take care of herself was arrested, detained, and sentenced by the Chinese Communist Party's 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong), simply because she believes in the principles of “Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance.”

Currently, Wang Yuluan's family has decided to go through the legal system to seek justice for Judge Zhu Huiqing's abuse of the law.
