610 Office Behind the Torture Death of a 60-year-old Practitioner and the Arrest of Many Others

On the evening of December 27, 2004, agents of the 610 Office (1) in Xiamen City, Fujian Province and local police officers arrested many Falun Dafa practitioners and tortured a senior female practitioner to death.

Around 9:00 p.m., under orders from the 610 Office, the directors of district police departments personally led seven groups of police officers, totaling several hundred, and arrested several dozen practitioners in Xiamen City. They also confiscated practitioners' Falun Dafa books and truth-clarification materials, home computers, printers and recording machines. The police injured many practitioners when they seized them. A 60-year-old female practitioner, whose last name was Gu, was tortured to death that night; the details are still being investigated. The arrests went on for three days. Since Jiang's regime began the persecution of Falun Gong in July 1999, this was the 610 Office's largest mass arrest in Xiamen City.
