Wang Youqun: The 610 Office Has Become The CCP’s “Death Knell”

Commentary Translated from Epoch Times Chinese Edition

The 610 Office was proposed by Jiang Zemin, the main culprit in persecuting Falun Gong, to establish a dedicated institution for the persecution of Falun Gong. It was named the 610 Office because it was established on June 10, 1999.

The nature of the 610 Office is similar to that of the Nazi secret police organization, the Gestapo.

After the establishment of the 610 Office, it became the most important accomplice in Jiang Zemin’s persecution of Falun Gong. Day after day, month after month, year after year, it has been persecuting the Falun Gong practitioners who believe in “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance.”

Since the outbreak of the great plague in Wuhan in 2020, which spread throughout China and the world, the CCP has been plunged into a comprehensive, profound, and sustained crisis.

At the 20th National Congress of the CCP in 2022, its focus shifted from the “focus on economic construction” established at the Third Plenary Session of the Eleventh Central Committee in 1978 to “safeguarding security.” Preserving the party, preserving power, and preserving life have become the top priorities of the CCP.

How did it come to this?

One important reason is that since its establishment, the 610 Office has been engaging in evil acts beyond moral and legal bottom lines. The role of the 610 Office in the comprehensive crisis facing the current CCP is prominently manifested in five aspects:

First, moral degradation.
After the establishment of the 610 Office, the first thing it did was to find evidence nationwide to prove Jiang Zemin’s conclusion that “Falun Gong must be defeated.”

In April 1999, due to Jiang Zemin ignoring the letters from Falun Gong practitioners and the vicious incident of over 40 Falun Gong practitioners being illegally arrested in Tianjin, tens of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners had to go to Beijing to petition the State Council’s Letters and Visits Office.

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, was introduced by Master Li Hongzhi from Changchun, Jilin Province, China on May 13, 1992. Because of its effectiveness in curing diseases, improving health, and purifying the mind and body, it quickly spread throughout China and then to the world through word of mouth.

Falun Gong requires practitioners to strictly follow the principles of “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance” to become better people and ultimately achieve selflessness. It has played a positive role in enhancing morality, resolving social conflicts, and promoting spiritual civilization.

Unfortunately, the rapid development of Falun Gong aroused strong jealousy among those who held views contrary to “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance” and they sought to eliminate it.

Falun Gong books were banned from publication; many Falun Gong practitioners were disturbed while studying and practicing, and even the Chaoyang District Public Security Bureau in Liaoning Province ordered the prohibition of Falun Gong. Despite the continuous letters from Falun Gong practitioners to Jiang Zemin being ignored, the suppression of Falun Gong continued to escalate, leading to the vicious incident on April 24, 1999, when over 40 Falun Gong practitioners were illegally arrested in Tianjin by the police.

These were the reasons why Falun Gong practitioners had to petition in Beijing on April 25, 1999.

As the top leader of the CCP at the time, Jiang Zemin had all the conveniences to promptly understand and properly handle the issue of Falun Gong. However, until “4.25” in 1999, Jiang Zemin had never conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and meticulous investigation into the issue of Falun Gong.

Without investigation, there is no right to speak, this is common sense.

However, Jiang Zemin, who never conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and meticulous investigation into the issue of Falun Gong, came to the conclusion on the evening of April 25, 1999, in a letter to the members of the CCP Politburo Standing Committee, that “Falun Gong must be defeated.”

This conclusion is undoubtedly completely wrong.

I remember around April 29, 1999, when I heard about the letter from Jiang Zemin conveyed by the relevant leaders of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the Supervisory Department, my first reaction was that Jiang Zemin might not understand the true situation of Falun Gong.

On May 7, 1999, I wrote a letter to Jiang Zemin titled “Falun Dafa Is Good for the Country and the People,” and sent it to Jiang Zemin and six other members of the CCP Politburo Standing Committee by registered mail.

However, Jiang Zemin, who rose to the highest position in the CCP on the blood of the June 4th students, although in a high position, was very fearful. He was worried that there were too many people practicing Falun Gong, which would endanger his power. He did not listen to the truth about Falun Gong at all, insisting on persecuting Falun Gong.

After the establishment of the Central 610 Office on June 10, 1999, officials of the 610 Office used Jiang Zemin’s conclusion of “defeating Falun Gong” to conduct so-called “investigations” into Falun Gong nationwide.

How was the investigation conducted? Anything that said “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good,” no matter how abundant, widespread, touching, or tear-jerking the facts were, were all ignored; anything that said “Falun Dafa is not good” was treated as precious, even if they were all fake, fabricated, malicious slander, or intentional defamation.

Jiang Zemin’s conclusion of “defeating Falun Gong” is wrong; the so-called “evidence” collected from all over the country by the Central 610 Office is false; the decision made by the CCP Central Committee based on Jiang’s wrong conclusion and the false evidence of the Central 610 Office to ban Falun Gong is bound to be wrong.

On July 20, 1999, after Jiang Zemin launched the persecution of Falun Gong, the entire propaganda machinery was set in motion to spread the false evidence collected by the 610 Office throughout China and the world, poisoning countless people.

The second major evil act committed by the 610 Office after its establishment was the so-called “transformation” of Falun Gong practitioners. How did they “transform” them? It forced Falun Gong practitioners to give up their belief in “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance,” forced them to tell lies, and made it mandatory to tell lies.

The consequences of these two major evil acts committed by the 610 Office are: turning China into the world’s largest liar country.

Second, undermining the rule of law.
From the first day of its establishment, the 610 Office has been a super power organization that overrides the constitution and the law.

At that time, its structure was: Jiang Zemin led the Secretary of the Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission, the Secretary of the Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission led the Central 610 Office, and the Central 610 Office controlled the persecution of Falun Gong by the public security, procuratorial, judicial, and other departments.

The destruction of the rule of law by the 610 Office is mainly manifested in two aspects:

On the one hand, since 1999, from the central to the provincial, prefectural, county, and township levels, numerous Falun Gong transformation classes have been held, which are actually brainwashing classes that illegally deprive Falun Gong practitioners of their personal freedom and even their lives.

It is illegal to arrest Falun Gong practitioners, detain them, force them to undergo brainwashing, torture them, and even injure, disable, drive them insane, or kill them.

On the other hand, since 1999, from the central to the provincial, prefectural, county, and township levels, the 610 Office has controlled public security, procuratorial, judicial, and other departments to create numerous false cases.

“No crime shall be committed without a clear provision of the law; no punishment shall be imposed without a clear provision of the law.” This is the principle of “legality of crime and punishment” widely practiced in the criminal laws of various countries. Searching through all the laws formulated by the CCP, there is no law that stipulates “Falun Gong is a cult.”

However, over the past 25 years, the 610 Office has controlled the public security, procuratorial, judicial, and other departments, and has used Article 300 of the Criminal Law to convict Falun Gong practitioners of “utilizing a cult to undermine the implementation of the law.”

“Falun Gong is a cult” was casually said by Jiang Zemin in an interview with the French Le Figaro on October 25, 1999, without any objective basis.

Those who truly cultivate Falun Gong have realized from their own practice that Falun Gong is a high moral practice, a righteous practice, and a Buddhist practice that benefits individuals, families, communities, countries, and humanity.

Officials of the 610 Office controlling judicial organs and abusing Article 300 of the Criminal Law are guilty of three crimes: defamation of Buddhism; at the same time, committing crimes while “kidnapping” police officers, prosecutors, judges, prison guards, etc.; and persecuting the minds and bodies of Falun Gong practitioners, their family members, relatives, and friends.

These are serious criminal acts of knowing the law but violating it, enforcing the law but violating it, deceiving the superiors and deceiving the subordinates, playing with the law, trampling on human rights, and undermining the rule of law.

As time goes by, the means by which the 610 Office undermines the rule of law in the persecution of Falun Gong have been applied to the persecution of human rights lawyers, Christians, Uighurs, Hong Kong people, Tibetans, private entrepreneurs, veterans, outspoken scholars, petitioners, and others, turning China into the most lawless country in the world.

Third, killing and harming lives.
In order to force Falun Gong practitioners to give up their belief in “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance,” the 610 Office has spared no effort.

According to, more than 100 kinds of torture have been inflicted on Falun Gong practitioners under the control of the 610 Office, including beating, electric shocks, handcuffs, shackles, chaining hands and feet, force-feeding, exposure to the scorching sun, freezing in ice and snow, long periods of sitting on small stools, prolonged sleep deprivation, sitting on a “tiger bench,” wearing restraining clothes, suffocation with plastic bags, forced feeding of pepper water, solitary confinement, verbal insults, sexual abuse, rape, stripping female practitioners naked and throwing them into male cells, and forced injection of drugs that damage the central nervous system.

Many Falun Gong practitioners have been persecuted to injury, disability, insanity, or death, and their families have been broken up and destroyed.

The most evil means of persecution is to kill people by “large-scale live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners.”

David Matas, an international human rights lawyer, is one of the leading experts on evidence of live organ harvesting by the CCP. Since 2006, Matas and his collaborators have published many reports on live organ harvesting by the CCP. He said in an interview with reporters that the evidence of live organ harvesting by the CCP is not too little but too much.

See Matas’s 680-page investigative report “Bloody Harvest/Ongoing Massacre: Update” released in Washington on June 22, 2016.

The large-scale live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners by the CCP has been described as “an unprecedented crime on this planet.” The 610 Office is an important link in this chain of murder.

Fourth, wasting countless hard-earned money from taxpayers.
The 610 Office is a huge network covering the entire China and even the world.

From the Central 610 Office to the 610 Offices in 32 provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities directly under the Central Government, to the 610 Offices in more than 330 administrative regions, to the 2,840-plus county-level administrative regions, to the 41,650-plus townships, to the 8,900-plus street offices, how many officials are there in the 610 Office nationwide? In addition, the CCP has more than 260 embassies and consulates abroad, and these embassies and consulates also have officials from the 610 Office.

A salary, subsidy, and bonus statistics table for the Harbin 610 Office in 2018 obtained by Epoch Times shows that the average annual income of officials in the Harbin 610 Office is about 200,000 yuan per person, which is 7 times the per capita income of urban residents in Heilongjiang Province and 14 times the per capita income of rural residents.

How much is the annual salary, subsidy, and bonus for each official in the national 610 Office? How much money do they spend each year on persecuting good people who believe in “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance”? It may be an astronomical figure.

Especially since many people in China still live in poverty (former Premier Li Keqiang once said that 600 million people in China earn only 1,000 yuan per month), many people find it difficult to see a doctor, to go to school, to find housing, or to retire. The CCP has used the hard-earned money of Chinese taxpayers to persecute good people who believe in “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance” for 25 years. This is a great sin!

Fifth, rampant corruption.
Since the first day of its establishment, the 610 Office has been doing dirty work for Jiang Zemin’s criminal group. In the process, corrupt officials have emerged in endless streams.

For example, Li Dongsheng, Deputy Minister of Public Security and Director of the Central 610 Office, Fu Zhenghua, Deputy Minister of Public Security and Director of the Central 610 Office, Sun Lijun, Deputy Minister of Public Security and Deputy Director of the Central 610 Office, and Peng Bo, Deputy Director of the Central 610 Office, are all serious corrupt elements.

Take Sun Lijun as an example. On September 23, 2022, Sun Lijun was sentenced to death for taking bribes, manipulating the securities market, and illegally possessing firearms. After his death sentence was commuted to life imprisonment after two years of suspension of execution, he was sentenced to life imprisonment. Sun Lijun’s bribe amount was as high as 646 million yuan.

The persecution of Falun Gong launched by Jiang Zemin and specifically implemented by the 610 Office is the longest-lasting (25 years), most widespread (worldwide), most harmful (to people at home and abroad), most evil (live organ harvesting), and most detrimental (filled with falsehoods, evil, and fighting in all fields) human rights catastrophe since the end of the Cultural Revolution.

To this day, Falun Gong has not been defeated. On the contrary, it has spread to 156 countries and regions around the world, while the CCP has brought itself down in this persecution.

The focus of the CCP on “maintaining security” since the 20th National Congress of the CCP indicates that the leaders of the CCP have realized that the CCP regime is in jeopardy. The 610 Office, which continues to do evil without bottom line, is the “death knell” for the CCP’s march toward the end.

After the institutional reform of the CCP in 2018, the responsibilities of the 610 Office were transferred to the Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission and the Ministry of Public Security. On the surface, the 610 Office seems to have ceased to exist. In fact, the 610 Office has just changed its name and is still operating.

The 610 Office, no matter what it looks like on the surface, as long as it continues to operate, is accelerating the CCP’s march toward its ultimate demise.
