Posted by Author on April 26, 2007

Press Release, China Aid Association, 04/24/07-

Midland, TX (CAA)- CAA has learned though credible sources that on April 19, 2007 in Akesu city, Xinjiang province, about 30 major house church leaders were arrested when they met with four American Christians Among two American are a senior pastor and an associate pastor of an American church. Sources tell CAA that the four Americans arrived at Akesu airport on April 17 and started fellowship with the house church leaders on April 18 at a local church family house.

At the time of this press release, the four Americans are still being held in an undisclosed hotel for questioning. The translator for the Americans, Mr. Jinhong Li from Beijing, is also still being detained.

On April 23, the PSB confiscated the luggage of the four Americans from the house of their host, a local church family. Eight Chinese pastors were released on April 20 and at least 6 others have already received criminal detention papers for 30 days detention for being accused as “suspects involved in evil cult activities.”

The names of the accused are Pastor Xinglan Zhao, Pastor Xiurong Huang, Pastor Tianlu Yang, 41, Pastor Chaoyi Wang, 41, Pastor Cuiling Li, 48, and Pastor Sijun He.

The Chinese government may sentence the six accused pastors to 1-3 years re-education through labor because they were previously detained for one month for organizing house church activities a couple of years ago.

Eyewitnesses told CAA that at least two of the arrested were seen with bleeding noses and bruises on their faces because of torture in the interrogation site.They are being held at A Ke Su City Detention Center.

CAA has learned the US Embassy is intervening for this case.
