Practitioners Legally Registered as Beijing Residents Are Being Arrested Prior to the Olympic Games

( All hotels in Beijing, whether they be large or small, require a scan of their customers' ID cards at check-in. The scanned information is then entered into a database and forwarded electronically to the Beijing Public Security Branch. There, the customers' names are compared with the list of Falun Gong practitioners they have collected, and shared with other police departments, so that the practitioners staying in the hotels can be arrested. If the hotel accepts people who do not have ID cards, the police will levy a heavy fine on the hotel owner.
