Practitioner Mr. Wang Jun, 41, was the deputy head of the Dongbei Optic Instrument Factory in Changchun City, Jilin Province. He was arrested on July 20, 1999 and was taken to the Changchun Drug Rehabilitation Center for an unknown length of time. In 2000, he went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa and was intercepted. He was sent to the Tiebei Detention Center in Changchun City and was held there for one month, during which time his work unit fired him. In 2002, when the Changchun police conducted a large blanket-style abduction of Dafa practitioners in retaliation for the broadcasting of truth clarification videos about Dafa, he left home to avoid being persecuted. His health deteriorated and he passed away on April 19, 2005.
