Two women taken into custody from Christian kindergarten in Guangxi



Thursday, February 20, 2014

China Aid Association

(Liuzhou, Guangxi—Feb. 20, 2014) Two Christian women were taken into custody on Tuesday from the Christian kindergarten in China’s southern Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region where they both work full-time.

Cheng Jie and Mo Xiliu were placed under criminal detention on Wednesday and charged with “engaging in illegal business operation” according to detention notices issued by the Yufeng (corrected Feb. 21) branch of the Liuzhou Public Security Bureau. Translations of the document will be published shortly.

These detentions appear to be related to the Christian teaching materials used in the school. “The Guangxi authorities are obviously trying to use the business-related, trumped up charges in order to cover up its religious persecution,” Bob Fu, ChinaAid founder and president, said.

“We urge the Guangxi authorities to immediately release these two innocent Christians,” Fu said.

Cheng’s husband, Pastor Du Hongbo, is a house church pastor and missionary. The couple has two small children, aged 3 (corrected on Feb. 20) and 1-1/2 years old.

The women are somehow associated with house church pastor Wang “Joshua” Dao (formerly known as Wang Tongjiang), the leader of the Liangren Church in the southern province of Guangdong (http://www.chinaaid.org/2010/06/wang-dao-released-on-bail-awaiting.html). More information on their affiliation with Wang will be released as it becomes available.
