(Wenzhou, Zhejiang—May, 17, 2016) A detained Christian was released on Friday in China’s coastal Zhejiang region; however, her husband, a pastor, and the couple’s oldest son are still in detention.

Xiang Lihua was criminally detained on April 25 for “gathering a crowd to disturb social order,” along with her husband, Wang Xiaowu. The couple has been providing legal counsel for churches affected by the cross demolition campaign in Zhejiang.

The couple’s oldest son was detained for “obstructing public service” when he attempted to prevent his parents’ apprehension.

China Aid reports on cases, such as the Wang family’s, in order to expose the abuses perpetrated by the Chinese government. China Aid will continue to monitor this case and report new information as it becomes available.
