One News Now: Canada a haven for Chinese defender of faith

A former Chinese judge has gained asylum in Canada after being jailed in China for more than a decade for defending and aiding vulnerable groups in that country.

Judge Li Jianfeng has settled in Vancouver, Canada, as a refugee. The judge served 11 years in a Chinese prison for "subverting state power" after using his position as a judge to aid vulnerable groups and human rights advocates.

Fu
China Aid was one of the groups that helped get him settled in Canada. Founder Bob Fu describes Li as "a courageous man of God" and applauds him for "bolding defending the weak and the vulnerable."

"[And] for that he suffered so much and was almost beaten to death in prison," he continues. "Even in his prison he tried every way to defend other prisoners' rights for reading Bibles and defending their religious freedom."

Regardless, says Fu, Judge Li is in good spirits. "He said first and foremost he wants to thank God for everything that happened to him and [for His] tremendous grace," he shares.

Fu explains China Aid is continuing to celebrate the accomplishment of this long-term rescue mission and is calling on the international community to continue to press China to release thousands of others who are prisoners of conscience.
