08/28/2022 China (International Christian Concern) – Preacher Li Jie, his wife Li Shanshan, and Preacher Han Xiaodong from Linfen Holy Covenant Church in Shanxi province are detained for the alleged crime of “fraud.”

The trio was taken away on Aug. 19 when 70 members of their church were enjoying an outdoor family camp. 170 police officers raided the location and led the leaders away.

On August 23, the family members of the trio received notification of Residential Surveillance at a Designated Location (RSDL) for allegedly committing “fraud.” The notice, sent by Linfen City’s Public Security Bureau, stated that the three had begun their RSDL on August 22. The exact location was not revealed to their family.

The Chinese government has, in the past year, increasingly used “fraud” as a charge against church leaders, especially house churches. They often accuse the Christians or churches of stealing offerings, when in reality, they merely do what any church in the world would do.
