3/11/2012 China (China Aid) – ChinaAid has obtained the police paperwork related to the administration detention of a house church leader in the region of Xinjiang in far western China, as well as the documents for the items confiscated by police when they raided the church’s Sunday worship service a week ago.

More than 50 Christians were holding the worship service last Sunday, March 4, in the city of Khotan when it was interrupted by local police and Domestic Security Protection agents, who apprehended the preacher, Zhong Shuguang, in whose home the house church was meeting, and confiscated a laptop and projector being used during the service.

On March 9 at about 4 p.m., Zhong received a phone call from Yang Mengqian, of the Khotan Public Security Bureau, instructing Zhong to go to the police department to retrieve the confiscated items. When Zhong and other Christians arrived, although the confiscated items were returned, Zhong was immediately taken into custody and detained.

Below is a translation of the police document (click here for original) putting him under 15 days of administrative detention, and the paperwork for the confiscated items.
