(Changji, Xinjiang–May 11, 2015) Four Christians administratively detained following the March raid of their gatherings have hired lawyers and submitted administrative reconsideration cases in China’s far western Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

Ren Yuxing, Dai Wanying, Tao Wenju and Wei Xiang were placed under administrative detention on March 9 after 40-50 officers from the local public security bureau and religious affairs bureau raided two gatherings, attended by a combined total of more than 90 church members, held at Ren and Dai’s homes.

The Christians were members of the Wujiaqu Local Church, the church of the 105th Regiment of the Construction Corps and delegates from surrounding area. Officers took more than 10 of these individuals into custody during the raids, which occurred from March 1-3; these were released after midnight following their apprehension.

Additionally, officers confiscated several dozen Bibles and hymnals.

The four Christians who were placed under administrative detention filed their reconsideration applications with the Xinjiang Construction Corps’ Public Security Bureau, Division 6.
