China Aid
By Rachel Ritchie

(Wenzhou, Zhejiang—Aug. 26, 2015) China Aid received information confirming that authorities detained Zhang Kai, the lawyer who has been leading the legal defense for churches affected by the province-wide persecution campaign in China’s coastal Zhejiang. Zhang has been held for more than 24 hours.

In addition to Zhang’s detention, more than 10 Wenzhou church leaders were also taken into police custody for questioning in the past 24 hours.

China Aid also learned that Hangzhou lawyer Zhuang Daohe has been placed under house arrest. Zhuang recently met with Rabbi David Saperstein, the U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious freedom, in Shanghai. His confinement is believed to be related to this meeting.
