A monk over sixty years old in Wuxue City of Hubei Province, Mei Zhongquan, practiced Falun Dafa and was kidnapped and sent to a brainwashing class and persecuted by unlawful people of the local "610 Office" (an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems). Due to the persecution, Mei Zhongquan became very weak and was at the point of death. Despite medical treatments, he passed away about 20 days after he was released.
