Epoch Times: The “610 Office” Continues to Carry Out Orders that Jiang Zemin Initiated

According to an article the Epoch Times published, prior to the 19th National Congress, an internal order was issued within the Public Security Bureau to conduct “door to door” visits to Falun Gong adherents to collect their personal information, take videos, or photo or monitor their activities. The action started in February of 2017 and took place in over 28 provinces and cities. Some of the Falun Gong adherents ended up being “kidnapped,” their houses were searched illegally, they were arrested, or they were sent to brainwashing sessions. Some were tortured to death, and some were forced to flee China. The article stated that the actions were contradictory to what Xi Jinping has been advocating according to the “rule by law” and his effort in cleaning up the judiciary system. It observed that the Public Security Bureau was still carrying out the orders that Jiang Zemin issued to the 610 office (a security agency named for the date of its formation on June 10, 1999, established specifically for the purpose of coordinating and implementing the persecution of Falun Gong). That agency is still operating and is following the policy that Jiang used his influence to initiate.
