In the middle of May 2006, police officials from the Lushuihe Police Department and Baishan City Politics & Law Committee and the 610 Office went to Mr. Yuan Yuqi's home and asked him if he was still practicing Falun Gong and what were his views about the book, Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. In addition, they pressured him to renounce Falun Gong. Seven years of continuous pressure and brutal persecution caused severe physical and psychological harm to Mr. Yuan, finally resulting in his death on June 13, 2006.
