Meditation group Falun Gong reported Chinese procurator-general Jia Chunwang to Danish police on Sunday for what they call his persecution of the group.

Jia will be in Denmark this week to attend and speak at an international conference of prosecutors in Copenhagen.

Falun Gong's request to investigate Jia will be handled by the Public Prosecutor for Special International Crimes.

Falun Gong claims that Jia, as the former minister of public security, is responsible for persecution of the movement in China.

'Jia Chunwang had the overall responsibility for the so-called 610 office, which is created with the sole purpose of wiping out Falun Gong. Therefore, he is responsible for what has happened, and he should therefore be prosecuted,' claimed Falun Gong Denmark in a press release after it made its request.

Legal consultant for the group, Tyge Trier, said to national daily Berlingske Tidende that Denmark, according to the UN torture convention, had an obligation to conduct an investigation.
