(Midland, Texas—Aug. 5, 2016) In response to the recent trials and coerced confessions of house church leader Hu Shigen and multiple human rights lawyers, along with the harassment of their families, China Aid’s president, Bob Fu, made the following statement on behalf of the organization:

“After more than 12 months of arbitrary arrest and detention in ‘black jails’ without any legitimate legal representation or family visitations, these rushed trials and harsh sentences are clearly nothing but political and religious persecution. The international community should unequivocally condemn this total disregard of the rule of law and the Chinese government's commitment to international human rights laws. As the two co-chairs of the Congressional-Executive Commission on China, Senator Rubio and Representative Smith stated today, this is a mockery to basic justice.

“With next month's G20 summit being held in China, we urge the United States to ask the Chinese government to immediately release those who were sentenced and those who are about to be tried in the next few days, including attorney Li Heping. The Chinese regime should also immediately stop mistreating their family members, including their wives and children.”

These human rights lawyers and Christian leaders include church elder Hu Shigen, lawyers and human rights defenders Li Heping, Zhou Shifeng, Zhai Yanmin, and Gou Hongguo and other individuals who were rounded up during the crackdown that began on July 9, 2015.

China Aid exposes the abuses suffered by human rights defenders in order to safeguard human rights in China.
