A police force with powers extending over all levels of China’s security apparatus continues to lead the crackdown on Falun Gong in China.
The 6-10 Office was formed 10 years ago on June 10 by the head of the Chinese Communist Party at the time, Jiang Zemin. He gave the directive to use “every means necessary” to wipe out the spiritual practice of Falun Gong.
“The 6-10 Office is just like Hitler’s Gestapo,” Guo Guoting, a Chinese human rights lawyer in exile told the Falun Dafa Information Center (FDI). “They are powerful and they got enough financial support from the government so…they secretly control all the Falun Gong practitioners in their local areas.”
Former police official of Tianjin State Security Bureau and the 6-10 Office, Hao Fengjun, defected to Australia in 2005 and says that China does indeed have a Gestapo-like agency called the 6-10 Office.
« Once I had to go to a place detaining Falun Gong practitioners. When we got there, I saw a lady practitioner with two large bruises and two 8-inch wounds on her back. A policeman was beating her using a half-meter-long iron bar. When I saw this, I knew that I could not carry on with this job. At that moment, I felt my heart break.”
