(Clearwisdom.net) The 610 Office and Domestic Security Division in Baoding City, Hebei Province have recently escalated the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. Wang Heli, the newly appointed director of the 610 Office, actively carried out the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) so-called "sharp sword" action to persecute Falun Gong, and rampantly arrested Falun Gong practitioners on a large scale.

Following orders from Wang Heli on June 12, 2010, the 610 Office, the police department, and the Domestic Security Division in Baoding City dispatched a large number of police vehicles and officers to five counties in northern Baoding City, including Yixian County, Dingxing County, Gaobeidian County, Laishui County, and Zhuoxian County. They collaborated with the local 610 Offices, police stations, and the Domestic Security Divisions in each county to arrest and harass Falun Gong practitioners on a large scale. The police officers illegally broke into practitioners' homes. They kicked in the doors, pried opened the locks, and took away cash and private property. Over 60 practitioners were confirmed arrested. Most were imprisoned in a forced labor camp. Over 100 practitioners were harassed. Wang Heli is now demanding that each county hold its own brainwashing session. She also secretively sent officers to each county to investigate Falun Gong practitioners, without notifying the local offices.

On orders from Wang Heli, Wang Hong'en from the Domestic Security Division in Baoding collaborated with the local police departments, the Domestic Security Divisions and the local police stations in Tangxian County, Fuping County, Quyang County, and Mancheng County, to arrest 57 Falun Gong practitioners on August 12-16, 2010. Some of the practitioners have been sent to a forced labor camp.
