Part II: Falun Dafa Information Center 2008 Annual Report

The year saw continued reports of Falun Gong disappearances. Since 2006, the editors of Minghui.org, a Chinese-language website run by overseas Falun Gong practitioners with an extensive network of sources inside China, have maintained a database of practitioners reported missing by friends and relatives. Of these, many were disappeared following arrest and detention, and others disappeared after being forced to go underground to flee persecution. Since Minghui began work on the database, they have compiled some 1,300 cases.
