1. [China] Local Officials Who Have Found Out the Truth Pay Lip Service to Orders from Higher Authorities
Some government officials in a Chinese city began to ignore orders from higher authorities after finding out the truth of Falun Dafa. Before the opening of the 16th Party Congress, higher authorities and "610 Offices" [The 610 Office is an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems] gave the order to the township government and even to the Party Committee at the village level that Falun Gong practitioners be sent to brainwashing classes. However, the local officials did not report any practitioners to their supervisors. They merely went to the practitioners' homes and had a look around. In the past, some towns persecuted Falun Gong very severely. Here though, it has been a long while since any Falun Dafa practitioners were arrested.

6. [Mudanjiang City, Heilongjiang Province] Persecution of Falun Dafa Practitioners Before the 16th Party Congress
The Public Security Bureau in Mudanjiang City has started to illegally search Falun Dafa practitioners' home without warrants.

8. [Anshan City, Liaoning Province] Beitaoguan Police Substation Extorts Money from Falun Dafa Practitioners
The Beitaoguan Police Substation extorted 1500 ~ 5000 Yuan from each Falun Dafa practitioner as collateral to insure that they did not go to Beijing during the 16th Party Congress. The money has not been returned yet. The general secretary of the Political and Judiciary Committee said, "It won't be returned until you write the statement of transformation." (referring to a statement renouncing Dafa)
The director of the Qilingzi Police Substation from Qianshan District of Anshan City brutally beat up Falun Dafa practitioners. He yelled, "We don't beat thieves or robbers but only those who practice Falun Gong." When practitioners asked him the reason, he said, "Because you spoiled my Spring Festival."
Zhang Chengguo, director of the Politics and Security Section of the Qianshan Branch of the Police Department, has committed many evildoings: whenever he captures a Falun Dafa practitioner, he will beat, abuse, and forcibly interrogate him.
