(Yining, Xinjiang—Oct. 26, 2015) A Christian woman from China’s northwestern Xinjiang was questioned and was criminally detained on suspicion of “gathering a crowd to disturb public order” on Sept. 1.
The local public security bureau raided a house church in Yining, Xinjiang and took a Christian woman to the police station for interrogation and later criminally detained her for “gathering a crowd to disturb public order.” Additionally, they confiscated some religious materials.
Li Dunyong, a human rights lawyer, has been hired to represent her case.
