(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Lu Mengxin was born in 1963, and was a lecturer employed by the Northeast Forestry University. He went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa on October 10, 1999, and was arrested by policemen from the Dongli District Department of Harbin City. He was detained for 16 months and sentenced to three years in prison.

Mr. Lu was beaten and had his food taken by other inmates. He was as thin as a skeleton due to starvation. He had scabies all over his body due to bad hygienic conditions. He was transferred to Harbin Prison on March 31, 2001, where he was force-fed while on hunger strike. His wife Xu Wenying (also a practitioner) had to leave home with their less than three year old child to avoid being arrested.

Mr. Lu Mengxin was arrested again early on the morning of April 3, 2005, and detained in the Dongli District Detention Center. He was sentenced to another two years in prison, but the prison rejected him due to his lung problems.

On February 27, 2006, Lu Mengxin died from multi-organ failure as a result of torture in the Wanjia Labor Camp. Details are under investigation.
