News Flash: Chen Guangcheng’s Brother Escapes; ChinaAid Call for Prayer

Thursday, May 24, 2012

China Aid Association
(Yinan, Shandong—May 24, 2012) ChinaAid has learned that blind lawyer and activist Chen Guangcheng’s older brother, Chen Guangfu, escaped from his home in Shandong province, where he was under strict surveillance, and has made it to Beijing where he is seeking legal help for his son, who has been charged with intent to murder.

ChinaAid expresses its indignation and condemnation of the authorities of Yunan county in coastal Shandong province for their continued persecution of the family of Chen Guangcheng, who arrived in the United States over the weekend, and for illegally restricting the personal freedom of Chen’s older brother, Chen Guangfu, in their home village of Dongshigu. Chen Guangfu fled Wednesday morning and made it to Beijing Wednesday night where he is appealing for help in his son Chen Kegui’s case.

ChinaAid appeals to the Chinese side to earnestly implement the agreement reached with the United States and, in accordance with the law, to investigate the legal responsibility and accountability of local officials involved in the persecution of Chen Guangcheng and his relatives.

ChinaAid also calls on the international community to once again focus international attention on Chen Guangfu’s family, and urges the worldwide church to intercede in prayer, that God's righteousness flow unobstructed throughout the world.

ChinaAid has suggested that Chen Guangfu stay in Beijing to continue his efforts on behalf of his son Chen Kegui, so as to avoid his own illegal arrest and detention prior to a just resolution to his son’s case.

The Chen Guangcheng incident is not yet over.
