Mr. Zhou Mengxu, 35, was from Zhangjia Village, Hongsheng Town, Xinbin County, Fushun City. Because he clarified the truth abut Falun Gong to people, staff from the Xinbin County Political and Judiciary Committee arrested him and ransacked his home. He was detained in Xinbin County Detention Center for 15 days, during which his fingers were burnt. He was then transferred to and detained at Fushun City Forced Labor Camp until July 2001. After Mr. Zhou returned home, staff from Xinbin County Political and Judiciary Committee tried to extort 7,000 yuan from him. Already living a hard life, Mr. Zhou could only come up with 3,000 yuan. He was forced to give them a receipt admitting that he borrowed 4,000 yuan from them. The tortures harmed Mr. Zhou's mind. The smallest sound would scare him tremendously. He no longer talked, and did not dare to meet people or watch TV. He could not work and lived in terror until he passed away on February 22, 2002.
