Most recent place of detention:
Mr. Meng Guanglu, 74 years old, was a retiree from the Shenghe District Procurator Office of Shengyang City, Liaoning Province. In February 2000, Mr. Meng went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong and was arrested. He was later released due to old age. After he returned home, he was continuously harassed by various agencies. During the Chinese New Year of 2001, the local 610 Office attempted to send Mr. Meng to a forced brainwashing center and only stopped after they had extorted 5,000 yuan from his family. Between 2000 and 2002, Mr. Meng's two daughters and their husbands (all Falun Gong practitioners) were sent to forced labor camps or forced brainwashing centers. Some were sent back due to health issues and some were able to escape and became homeless to avoid further persecution. Mr. Meng was left at home with two grandchildren. He was devastated and put under extreme pressure. He developed intestinal cancer and died on September 12, 2002.
