(Hangzhou, Zhejiang—July 7, 2019) Chinese authorities held a Christian man under secret incarceration in a basement for months, not allowing him to see the sunlight, according to a recent report received by ChinaAid.

The man, Gou Zhongcan, was detained and held in the basement of a public security bureau office when he refused to reveal the passwords to his computer and cell phone. When his father was finally allowed to meet with him, the elder man reported that his son did not look well, but that he has been singing hymns and worship songs in the police station.

Allegedly, when he does so, the station’s whole environment changes.

Gou is affiliated with Early Rain Covenant Church, a church located in Chengdu, Sichuan, that has been under intense government persecution.
