Church leaders freed after Christian group intervenes
Four church leaders have been released from a labour re-education facility in Hubei province after their sentences were lifted following help from an overseas Christian group. Wang Caizhang , 34, Ma Zhao , 35, Yang Situan , 39, and Du Dongliang , 32, were sentenced last August to 18 months of re-education after being caught holding Sunday worship, China Aid said on its website. A China Aid lawyer filed a legal review with provincial authorities requesting the sentences be overturned. It was found the sentences were “not based on clear facts and not supported by sufficient evidence”, the group said. AFP
