CHINA - Twelve Protestants arrested in Beijing for suspected links to dissidents [AN]


Officially, they are in jail for illegal gathering (to study the Bible). Several of them are dissidents who converted to Christianity. Some of them also support Xu Zhiyong, a leader of the New Citizens movement, a group that calls for respect for the constitution and transparency with regards to the assets owned by Communist Party leaders. Xu Yonghai, head of the Holy Love Fellowship, converted at the time of the Tiananmen movement.
