(Nanyang, Henan—June 18, 2016) A police-backed gang bulldozed three acres of land owned by a Christian on June 5 after forcefully taking it from him.

Liu Zigeng, a local gang member, took a soybean field from Bai Fengju, a Christian, in order to build temples. On the morning of June 5, Liu sent a group of 20 people to destroy the property.

According to Bai’s sister, the field was demolished without notice. When she heard of the demolition, she posted the story to overseas websites. That night, government personnel made Liu apologize to Bai, returned his property and gave him 2,000 Yuan (U.S. $303.00) in compensation for his losses. Additionally, they agreed to move the walls of the temple back 23 feet and return the land to him.

When asked why she thought the government chose to reimburse her brother, Bai’s sister said, “It could have been [because of] the news we sent out … otherwise, they (the government) would not care about him (Bai Fengju).”

However, she also claimed that the police sent the demolition team.

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