(Wenzhou, Zhejiang—March 18, 2016) On March 9, authorities in China’s coastal Zhejiang province formally arrested a pastor who peacefully opposed the forced demolitions of church crosses.

Pastor Zhang Chongzhu has been held under criminal detention since Feb. 5. His wife reported that she recently received a notice that her husband had been officially arrested on charges of “stealing, spying, buying, or illegally providing state secrets or intelligence to entities outside China.” Christians suspect this charge may be linked to Zhang’s meeting with a U.S. diplomat in Shanghai last year.

China Aid will update this story as more information becomes available.

China Aid exposes religious freedom abuses, such as those experienced by Zhang Chongzhu, in order to promote religious freedom and rule of law in China.
