New Year gift for imprisoned pastor

HONG KONG (SE): Pastor Huang Yizi, who was arrested in September last year on charges of endangering national security when he opposed the removal of crosses from Church buildings in Zhejiang, received a New Year gift when he was released from detention on February 11, during the Lunar New Year holiday period.

Pastor Huang said that he had been kept for five months in what is referred to as a black jail, a place of illegal detention used to house dissidents.

 

Pastor Huang is the leader of the Feng Wo Church in Zhejiang. He had previously spent one year in prison for leading a prayer vigil protest against the cross removals, China Aid reported from the United States of America.
