Computer Record Shows Dr. Fan’s Residence was Illegally Invaded



Monday, December 6, 2010

ChinaAid Association 

(BEIJING -- Dec. 1, 2010)
On Nov. 24, the Haidian Branch of Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau and officers from the Domestic Security Protection Squad took the entire family of Fan Yafeng to a police station for interrogation.
During the interrogation, his residence was illegally invaded and his computer was used without his authorization.


From 9:10 p.m. until 1:30 a.m. the next day, the three members of Fan Yafeng’s immediate family -- including his 3-year-old son -- were being interrogated at the police station. Strangely, the police station not only confiscated Fan Yafeng’s cell phone, they also confiscated the keys to his home.

Accordingto an automatic record of use in Fan Yafeng’s computer, the computer was in use between 12:05 a.m. and 1:01 a.m. on November 25. During this time, Fan’s family was at the police station being interrogated.

ChinaAid Association denounces this illegal invasion of the private residence of a Chinese citizen. It also advices people with sense of justice in China who are being monitored by the government there to practice safe computing.

For example, Internet users should use a virtual private network (VPN) when getting online, register multiple email addresses, and install a Linux operating system which allows you to use multiple Skype accounts at the same time. While using Skype, register multiple Skype usernames and install the Skype applications downloaded from servers physically located overseas.

No information of value should be released on QQ.com, or even on hard drives on personal computers. Hard disks and other disks should be encrypted. We recommend TrueCrypt. Backup copies of any important information should  stored on the Internet.

Please continue to pray for Dr. Fan and his family. Also pray for Shengshan house church, and that Dr. Fan would be strengthened as he leads this group of believers.
