During my three trips to China (1996 to 1999) I met many Chinese Falun Gong practitioners. Their pure minds and unselfish behaviour made a very strong impression on me. After the persecution of Falun Gong started I often wondered what happened to the friends that Id met. Have they suffered from torture? Are they still alive?

Amnesty International has been made aware that approximately 550 deaths have occurred in custody since the Falun Gong was banned in July 1999; deaths have been attributed to ill treatment and torture.
