China Aid Association Picks 2010’s Top 10 Cases of Persecution of Churches and Christians in China

Hoping to receive bribes, police in Yucheng county, Shangqiu city, Henan province, detained five local Christians. The family of one of them paid several thousand yuan (hundreds of dollars) to win her release, but the other four believers – Gao Jianli, Hua Yulan, Liu Yunshan and Zheng Yumei – insisted on maintaining a “Jesus in Lord” attitude and refused to give any bribes to the police. The result was that after being in custody for 15 days, they were sentenced to one year re-education-through-labor (an extra-judicial sentence that is passed by Chinese police, not the courts). The two women, Hua Yulan and Zheng Yumei, are incarcerated in the Zhengzhou Re-Education-Through-Labor Facility, and Gao Jianli and Liu Yunhua are at the Xuchang Re-Education-Through-Labor Facility. One police officer privately told them, “During the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, you donated 5000 yuan (US$755). It would seem then that you have quite a large organization!”

 PLEASE POST THIS AND LET PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THE PERECUTION OF THE CHURCH IN CHINA.
