Most recent place of detention:
Mr. Wang Zhendong, 61 years old, was a resident in the Jinzhou District, Dalian City, Liaoning Province. All three members of his family practiced Falun Gong. In September 2002, his wife was again arrested and illegally sentenced to forced labor. In March 2003, his daughter was suddenly arrested for the second time and sent to a forced labor camp. The continuous persecution traumatized Wang Zhendong, but he remained firm in practicing Falun Gong. He went to clarify the truth to the policemen involved in this incident many times, requesting the release of his wife and daughter. In April 2003, he went to the forced labor camp to visit his wife, but the policemen did not allow him to see her. Wang was very upset and died in a car accident on the way home.
