Yang Rongli

Thursday, April 2, 2015

Ms. Yang Rongli and her husband, Wang Xiaoguang, were the leaders of the 50,000-member Linfen house church in inland Shanxi province, until they were arrested in 2009.

At the time of their arrest, Yang and her husband were traveling with five other church leaders to Shanxi’s provincial capital, Taiyuan, to petition the government after a series of events involving the demolition of a church in the Linfen house church network and the illegal detainment of a church member.

On Nov. 25, 2009,the group was convicted of “gathering a mob to disturb the public order” because of a prayer rally they held on Sept. 14. Yang and Wang were sentenced to seven and three years in prison and fined 30,000 yuan (U.S. $4,925) and 10,000 yuan (U.S. $1,640), respectively.

Yang, a 1982 graduate of Linfen Normal College’s Chinese department, was retained by the college to teach because of her excellent academic record. She also worked as an editor and reporter. She is in her 50s. For more information, visit www.helplinfen.com
