Christian's case delayed

(Dali, Yunnan—May 15, 2017) Authorities decided to prolong the case of a Christian woman imprisoned in China’s southwestern Yunnan province, her lawyer recently told ChinaAid.

Last month, the local public security bureau submitted so-called “evidence” against Tu Yan, a 36-year-old Christian who runs a hotel in Dali, Yunnan, to the procuratorate for a second time, arguing that she participated in a cult outlawed by the government. When they submitted the case originally, the procuratorate returned it to them, citing insufficient evidence, and ordered them to investigate further. Now, the court must elect whether or not to prosecute the case.

Tu’s lawyer, Ren Quanniu, told ChinaAid that he received a notice on April 28 stating that the procuratorate is delaying the case by a month and a half, and that he should know their decision by tomorrow.

On Oct. 23, 2016, Tu was taken into police custody and charged with participating in a religious sect known as the Three Grades of Servants, which China labels a cult. Tu and her family have steadily maintained her innocence, saying that she is only a regular Christian and has never participated in cult activities.

ChinaAid follows cases such as Tu’s in order to expose abuses suffered by Christians and promote religious freedom, human rights, and rule of law.
