Updates on some recent cases reported by ChinaAid.

Sichuan province: On April 26, Pastor Li Ming and 15 lay leaders of a house church in Langzhong were taken into custody when they were learning to play musical instruments. Ten were released the following day and six were administratively detained. Three who were held in administrative detention for three and five days respectively have already been released, and Li Ming, Wang Yuan and Li Chengxi who were in administrative detention for 15 days, were released on Thursday (May 9).

Henan province: On April 1, 2013, the People’s Court of Ye county convicted seven leaders of a house church in Ye County who had been administratively detained or arrested for almost a year of “using a cult organization to undermine law enforcement” and sentenced them to prison terms ranging from three to 7-1/2 years. They have appealed, and a total of 12 Christian lawyers, including the well-known young lawyer Zhang Kai and Yang Xingquan, are headed to Ye county to provide their defense at the trial of the second instance. See our earlier reports at: http://www.chinaaid.org/2013/04/seven-christians-in-henan-province.html and http://www.chinaaid.org/2012/11/seven-house-church-christians-in-henan.html

The court convened on Thursday (May 9) to hear the case, and attorney Zhang Kai was authorized to give the defense.

Although we don’t know the result, the court proceedings were was carried out properly and were orderly, the attorney’s right of defense was fully guaranteed, and the Prosecutor was mild and rational. They are to be complimented… In his final statement, my client said, 'Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream.'"
