Case Details:

Prior to his last detention, Mr. Lu was held in custody multiple times. On Sept 28, 2008, Lu and his wife were abducted by plaintclothes police officers as they were leaving their home to go to their family-owned restaurant to work. They were taken to Matougang Detention Center in Jinshui District, where Mr. Lu was severely beaten and tortured, causing him to pass out.

Mr. Lu was then sentenced to a forced labor camp for one year and taken to Baimiao Re-education through Labor camp. There he was again beaten and forced to perform hard labor for over ten hours a day. By March 2009 (after only four months at the camp), his health had deteriorated significantly and he had contracted tuberculosis.

By the end of July, he had become emaciated and was further suffering from liver disease and anemia. He was taken to the hospital, where he was also diagnosed with late stage lunch cancer. The authorities then called his family and he was released into their custody in August 2009. Mr. Lu never recovered and died two months later, on Oct 30, 2009.
