CHINA: Linfen House Church Leader Abducted, Beaten

Bulletin Date: 4 September 2013


Li Shuangping, leader of Linfen house church, was abducted and beaten by agents of the local government on Aug. 13.

Li reported that he was driving home when a man pretending to be intoxicated staggered in front of his car, forcing Li to stop. Simultaneously, three men drove up near Li's vehicle. The men, along with the man pretending to be intoxicated, grabbed Li and yanked him from his vehicle. Li was forced into their vehicle, where he was blindfolded and bound with a rope.

According to Li, one of the men drove while the other three held him down in the backseat and punched and kicked his head, neck and torso. One of the men verbally threatened Li, asking him how he would like to die as a result of leading a house church. The man threatened to throw Li into a river and to make him drink sulfuric acid. The man also threated to kidnap and kill Li's family, including his children. The men eventually dumped Li in a cornfield.
