(Kaili City, Guizhou Province—August 15, 2021) On August 15, Bob Fu, PhD., founder of ChinaAid, posed the question: “Is collecting a Church offering a crime?” Dr. Fu reports that the Kaili People’s Court has sentenced four Christian leaders from a Seventh-day Adventist Church in Kaili City, Guizhou Province for providing a box in the church for tithes and offerings. The Court sentenced the following Church leaders on fully false, fabricated charges of “fraud”:

- Brother Jiang Kui: 6 years,
- Xie Zhiqun: 5 years, and
- Sister He Seqin: 3 years.
