Additionally, violators of the new regulation will be sued.

“This notice was sent to all of the schools in Huaqiu,” Mou, the person in charge of Huaqiu Church, said. “They (public security) intend to cleanse us and ask us to join the Three-Self Church.”

After issuing the notice, government personnel coerced members of Huaqiu Church to sign a document saying that they would no longer take minors to church.
