(Midland, Texas—Nov. 13, 2020) In addition to claims of stalking, defamation, conspiracy, and invasion of privacy, the lawsuit by attorneys of Bob Fu alleges that Guo Wengui, billionaire Chinese media executive, has made “terroristic threats” against Pastor Fu and incited followers to kill him. Through online death threats and protests at the Fu family home in Midland, Wengui criminally targeted Pastor Fu, orchestrating and implementing a “multi-faceted campaign of character assassination” trying to silence Pastor Fu and annihilate his persistent work to promote religious freedom and human rights within China.

According to the lawsuit The Lanier Law Firm in Houston filed:

“Although claiming to support the Chinese pro-democracy movement, Guo employs his vast legal, financial, and corporate resources, together with his robust social media presence, to systematically target pro-democracy and pro-religious freedom activists in the Chinese American community,” the lawsuit says. “Since 2018, Guo has attacked Chinese human rights activists and bona fide CCP (Chinese Communist Party) dissidents in the United States. This year, Plaintiff Bob Fu became Guo’s latest target.”

 Guo began the public attacks against Pastor Fu in September in a series of videos posted on his GTV and GNews websites, in addition to Twitter and YouTube. The attacks have become more aggressive in recent weeks with the promotion of death threats and the presence of scores of protestors outside Pastor Fu’s home. Following Guo’s directives, the protestors allege that Pastor Fu is a fraud and a spy for the Chinese government.

 The false allegations, protests and credible threats against Pastor Fu have drawn the attention of local, state and federal law enforcement, and criticism from Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Pastor Fu and his family were recently placed in protective custody in separate locations.

 “Dr. Fu is an internationally recognized spokesperson for Christian ministry and religious freedom, and this abuse of his reputation and encouragement of violence against him must stop,” says his attorney, Lawrence Wilson of The Lanier Law Firm in Houston. “His decades of dedicated promotion of human rights and democracy in his homeland and around the world must not be subjected to these assaults. This lawsuit will now shine a bright light on the actions and motivations of Mr. Guo.”

Attorneys filed the lawsuit, Xiqiu (Bob) Fu v. Guo Wengui et al, …in United States District Court in Midland, Texas.

Pastor Fu has stated that he believes Guo is not an anti-CCP (Chinese Communist Party) dissident as he claims, but rather hunting dissidents on behalf of the CCP. “It’s no coincidence,” Fu said, “that official Chinese propaganda outlets (including the Global Times) are attacking the same Chinese dissidents in the United States as Guo.”
