(Nanyang, Henan—June 24, 2016) “I’ll skin you alive if you dare to complain again,” an official told a Christian in China’s central Henan province as a demolition team reclaimed his property on June 12.

A gang hired by government officials seized a three-acre soybean field on June 12 belonging to Bai Fengju, a local Christian, in order to build a Buddhist temple on the site. A week earlier, they forcibly took the land only to later return it, offer him 2,000 Yuan (U.S. $304) in compensation and personally apologize after another Christian posted pictures of the bulldozed field on social media. However, despite the apparent reconciliation, the gang returned and resumed digging trenches, building walls for the temple and destroying crops.

When Bai confronted an official, the man said: “Go home and wait in your room. I’ll find you and skin you.”

Additionally, Bai noted that the demolition team “spoke rudely” to him, and the construction carried on into the next day.

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