QINGDAO, Shandong(ChinaAid)— Qingdao officials released an elderly minister on March 29 upon the completion of his two-year-and-one-month sentence for allegedly “provoking troubles.”
Later that night, the released minister, Zhou Dixian, traveled to Beijing in order to protect his rights and worship at a church there.
Before his arrest, Zhou founded a church that was not registered with the government, an action his son believed contributed to authorities seizing him. Now that he is released, he would like to re-start the church. His family is concerned that the government may target him again.
