(Minghui.org) Mr. Wu Liyou, a 50-year-old Falun Gong practitioner from Shanghai, was illegally arrested in early April 2014. The police tortured him in an attempt to extort a confession. He has now disappeared.

Lu Jian and other police officers ambushed Mr. Wu at his home. They burst into his home when his family opened the door. Mr. Wu told them that trespassing was against the law. Lu made a pretext of apologizing and left. However, officers from the Quyang Police Station returned the next day and arrested Mr. Wu. They took his keys and ransacked his home later when nobody was there.

Memory Loss Induced by Toxic Drugs During Previous Detention

Mr. Wu was previously arrested in September 2012. Detained at the local residential committee, he was surrounded by a dozen police officers and the committee staff for two hours. Lu Jian later took Wu to Fengxiang Brainwashing Center.

While he was detained, Mr. Wu was not allowed to contact his family or friends or to leave the room. He was watched all day by two so-called “teachers.” Whatever he did, he had to report to them. Audio recordings of propaganda slandering Falun Gong were continuously played in his room at the highest volume for over ten hours every day.

Neurotoxic drugs were mixed into Mr. Wu's foods in order to damage his memory and force him to give up practicing Falun Gong. The head of the local 610 office talked with Mr. Wu regularly and realized that he was still holding onto his belief, so they increased the drug dose.

Afterwards, Mr. Wu had symptoms of Alzheimer's. When he was released a month later his family noticed that his memory had severely deteriorated.
