(Beijing—April 10, 2016) A Christian woman disclosed the abuses she and her family members suffered in 2014 for their participation in a serially targeted house church in Beijing.

Authorities sentenced Wang Chunyan to a month in criminal detention for “illegally gathering.” During her incarceration, her brother, who suffered from a mental illness, died from a lack of care, leaving behind a young daughter.

On Oct. 21, 2014, Wang applied to the Tongzhou Sub-bureau of the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau for approximately 1,403,000 Yuan (U.S. $217,000.00) in compensation for her detention. The Compensation Committee of the Beijing Municipal Second Intermediate People’s Court denied her request on Dec. 1, 2014, stating, “Wang Chunyan herself admitted to participating in a house church” and that “because Wang Chunyan was suspected of committing a crime, she was therefore criminally detained according to the law.”

Similarly, officials injured and sentenced her sister to one year in prison for involvement in Holy Love Fellowship. According to Wang, her mother also died as a result of government persecution.

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