Let my people go: China all for the release of three Christians in Prison in Xinjiang
ChinaAid has issued an urgent call for people around the world to intercede on behalf of Christian prisoners: Alimujiang Yimiti, Wusiman Yiming and Lou Yuanqi.
According to China Aid, “Alimujiang, Wusiman and Lou have been shown great injustice by the Xinjiang government in delayed trials, mistreatment in prison and blatant violation of legal rights.”
Mr. Alimujiang Yimiti, a Christian from the Uyghur minority, has been in detention since Jan. 12, 2008 for preaching Christianity. Wusiman Yiming was sentenced to two years of re-education through labor in September 2007 for “revealing state secrets” and “illegal proselytizing.” Lou Yuanqi. Lou stood trial on Dec.15, 2008 on charges of “utilizing superstition to undermine the law.”
Bob Fu, president of ChinaAid, strongly denounces the conduct of the government of Xinjiang and calls on the international community to show concern regarding the cases of Alimujiang, Wusiman and Lou and to urge the Chinese government to improve the status of the human rights of house church Christians and ethnic minorities in China.
