New York Times: China: Prison for Preachers

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

The New York Times   By ANDREW JACOBS  Published: April 22, 2013

The Chinese authorities have sentenced to prison seven underground church leaders who were arrested last April and charged with belonging to an illegal cult, according to a Christian rights group. The preachers, who officiated illegal Pentecostal congregations in Henan Province, were given terms from three to seven-and-a-half years, according to court documents released by ChinaAid, a Texas-based group. The verdicts were issued by the Ye County People’s Court on April 1, but lawyers for the four women and three men said they were not notified until last week.

A version of this brief appeared in print on April 23, 2013, on page A6 of the New York edition with the headline: China: Prison for Preachers.
