(Bayingolin Mongol Autonomous Prefecture, Xinjiang—March 6, 2017) Officials invaded churches and seven Christian homes and confiscated various materials in China’s northwestern Xinjiang on Feb. 24 and 26.

Without legal documents, officers searched churches and the homes of Christians Chen Daihu, Peng Zuorong, Liu Shouqun, Zhao Jinhong, Jia Qiuyue, Fu Qun, and Zhou Jianhua on Feb. 24, destroying religious materials. Fu, who runs a church in one of her two homes, said, “The police officers searched every corner of the church. They took away the offering box, the books, the crosses, basically anything. They removed the crosses and the posters on the walls of every household.”

On Feb. 26, authorities broke into the homes again without presenting warrants. One of the Christians, whose identity was unspecified, said, “There were more than 10 officers in both raids. They climbed the fence [to my house] during the second raid and told me that they wanted to ‘have a look’ in my house. The officers searched my house thoroughly and even confiscated my checkbook on the table. I demanded my books … back, but they refused. I complained to them that there were two raids in a matter of three days.“

The church member also said he was accused of cult activity, despite never being involved in a cult.

The local Christians said they did not know where they could go to file a complaint.

China Aid exposes abuses such as those experienced by church members in Xinjiang in order to stand in solidarity with persecuted Christians and promote religious freedom, human rights, and rule of law.
