She is reported to be in ill health as a result of an illness left untreated during her imprisonment. Ni Yulan, a Christian activist and lawyer, was tried in 2011 and sentenced in 2012 to two years and eight months for fraud and creating a disturbance. The fraud conviction was later dropped and her sentence was reduced by two months. Her husband was sentenced to two years.
