Mr. Luo Xiaolong, a Falun Gong practitioner in Shihezi City, Xinjiang Autonomous Region, was about 29 years old. He lived in an apartment at the Shihezi Woolen Mill. In 2001 and 2002, he distributed a lot of materials which clarify the facts about Falun Gong to people, and for this, he and another practitioner, Wang Jianhong, were arrested by policemen, including Xu Ningdong, from the national security team of the Shihezi Police Department. He was brutally persecuted and later illegally sentenced to prison. In July 2003, he was in critical condition and was released on bail for medical treatment. He passed away soon after returning home.
