BEIJING (AsiaNews): A sentence of two years reeducation through hard labour was handed out to Father Wang Chengli, the administrator of the unofficial Church community in Heze in Shandong province, on August 25.

The 48-year-old priest was transferred to a reeducation centre in Jining, more than 150 kilometres away from the centre in Dongming where he had been held since his midnight arrest on August 3. A relative of Father Wang says that he has high blood pressure.
