08/17/2012 China (ChinaAid) – The house church in Zhanggonggiao Village, Qili-Banshichu, Langzhong City, Sichuan Province, that filed an administrative review according to the law because of persecution and unjust punishment, received a reply from Sichuan Langzhong Municipal Government on Monday, August 13, which ruled that this church “was involved in illegal religious activities” and “the punishment given to it is appropriate.”
This church was raided and “outlawed” on May 30, 2012. Church property was confiscated and sister Xie Deyue who hosted worship meetings at her home was summoned for questioning.
