(November 1, 1999) The Ministry of Public
Security announced on October 25, 1999 that the Chinese
police have investigated into a number of cases involving
Falun Gong followers who have illegally obtained and leaked
Police have evidence which
indicates members of the Falun Gong cult, founded by Li
Hongzhi, have stolen 59 classified State documents, 20 of
which are top secret.
In his interviews with
foreign media, Li Hongzhi has repeatedly claimed neither he
nor his organization is politically motivated. Now the hard
facts further expose him as a liar.
Li and his
organization not only have political motives but also have
openly opposed the government by spreading rumours on the
Internet based on the State secrets they seized.

organization. Considering the anti-scientific, anti-social,
anti-human and anti-governmental nature of Falun Gong, it
should not surprise us if more crimes are discovered.
As an evil force, the Falun Gong cult has
disrupted social stability, endangered the safety of the
State and damaged the bodies and minds of those who believe
The official ban and investigations
into its crimes are significant steps towards rooting out
Falun Gong. But additional efforts need to be made in order
to wipe out the hotbeds for cults.
