(Clearwisdom.net) Officials of the "610 Office" of Weishan County, the local police department, the Bureau of Religion and the Buddhist Association [which is controlled by the Party] have been persecuting Zuo Shiguang, the former abbot of the Babaoshan Temple in Weishan County, Dali Bai Nationality Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province.

Zuo Shiguang declared to the perpetrators that Falun Dafa is a righteous, high-level cultivation practice within the Buddha school, and that he would keep practicing without wavering.

In June 2004, the "610 Office" of Dali sentenced Zuo Shiguang to imprisonment in the Second Forced Labor Camp in Dapingba, Lufeng County, Yunnan Province. Because Zuo Shiguang is a monk who had little contact with other people, the details of his situation are not known.
