Falun Gong practitioner charged with rape

A man has been arrested after he allegedly used his Falun Gong connections to persuade 17 women to have sex with him since 2001, according to prosecutors in central China’s Henan Province. He is also said to have swindled more than 200,000 yuan (US$32,210) from the women.

Sun, a 63-year-old Falun Gong practitioner, is alleged to have had sex with the women from cities across China, including Shanghai and Beijing, by claiming he was the father of Falun Gong founder Li Hongzhi and that he could “purify” them by “injecting high-energy material” — his sperm — into their bodies, according to Huixian County prosecutors office.

Sun also told the women that he could barely support his family and his wife didn’t have a job, prosecutors said. After having sex with him, they are said to have shown their gratitude by giving him money ranging from 3,000 to 30,000 yuan.

Police caught him on December 4, last year after a tip-off and he was arrested on fraud and rape charges. An investigation is ongoing.
