Lawyers Chen Jiangang and Li Yonglin attempted to meet with Yang Hua, also known as Li Guiozhi, however, authorities denied their request. The lawyers have filed a written application and expect to be denied.

China Aid will continue to update this story as information becomes available.

China Aid reports on instances of rule of law violations, such as the authorities’ refusal to let the lawyers meet with their client, in order to promote religious freedom and rule of law in China.
