About This Document
This document outlines guidelines for detaining persons belonging to one of 21 types of target (focus) persons. They are to be subjected to “strike-hard detention,” which typically indicates a tougher form of detention than re-education. The 21 categories include a wide variety of individuals, including persons who photograph convenience police stations, fail to participate in government grassroots organizational arrangements, engage in various types of religious activities, or refuse to allow visits by government work teams. Please note that this PDF was created from individual low-resolution images and therefore has a recent (2023) file creation date.
