On November 4th, 2010, Mr. Cong Zhongxiao, a practitioner from Dalian City, was sentenced to three years in prison by Wensheng District Court in Liaoyang City, Liaoning Province. He is preparing his appeal to the Liaoyang City Intermediate Court.
Mr. Cong Zhongxiao's hometown is Liaoyang. He graduated from the Dalian University of Technology and was working as a teacher in a college and as a manager in a company in Dalian. He began to practise Falun Gong in 1997. He is a modest and kind person with strong professional skills. His parents are in their 80s and he has a sister living in Liaoyang.
In 2000, Mr. Cong was sentenced to three years in prison. His wife was deceived by the lies from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and divorced him. After he was released in 2003, he was fired from his work and could not find a stable job. Later, he found a job as a teacher in Liaoyang and lived in his sister's home.
On May 8th, 2010, he gave a Falun Gong DVD to a person he ran into on the street and he was reported to authorities. Officers from the South Gate Police Station of Liaoyang arrested him. They went to his sister's home and ransacked the place. They also beat him up and knocked out three of his front teeth. Then they sent him to the Liaoyang Detention Centre. His parents and sister went to several government agencies to appeal for his innocence but their appeal was not accepted anywhere. After two hearings, the Wensheng District Court sentenced him to three years in prison.
