According to pertinent information, these arrests occurred because the 610 Office was looking for a Dafa practitioner. They arrested and threatened practitioners and extorted money from them. Without following any legal procedures they detained, extorted confessions from, tortured, and tried these kind people. This kind of lawless behavior typifies the tyranny of the Chinese Communist Party.
