(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Li Yongquan was arrested at the dentist office where he works on December 28, 2017 by police officers pretending to have come for a dental checkup.

The police did not inform Mr. Li's family about the arrest and subsequent detention for over a month. His parents, 90 years old, were traumatized when they finally learned that their son was arrested again. His mother lost her hearing, and his father needed a pacemaker to help control his abnormal heart rhythms.
