Charges Against Falun Gong Practitioners Dropped Since No Crime Committed

(Before It's News)

(Minghui.org) Two local women in Dandong City were arrested in October 2016 for talking to people about the persecution of Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline currently persecuted in China. The officers at Jinshan Police Station submitted their cases to the local procuratorate.

The prosecutor at Yuanbao District Procuratorate dismissed Ms. Ji Lijun’s case a month later for insufficient evidence of any wrongdoing and released her on bail.

In February this year, the prosecution dismissed the case against Ms. Ren Ping and released her unconditionally.

At the same time, the police refunded Ms. Ji her bail money and exonerated her.

China’s constitution promises citizens freedom of belief. Practicing Falun Gong is thus within one’s constitutional rights. There is no law in China that stipulates that practicing Falun Gong is illegal, although the Party has had a policy of persecuting those who practice Falun Gong nevertheless.

The two practitioners should not have been arrested in the first place.
