Friends fear for Chinese Christian lawyer spending Christmas behind bars | World news | The Guardian

More than 100 Zhejiang churches enlisted Zhang’s help as government officials continued to strip crosses from their places of worship.

Then, friends say, the Communist party decided it had had enough. “He became too difficult to be handled normally so they decided to take some extraordinary measures,” said Yang.

On 25 August, the day before Zhang was due to meet David Saperstein, the US ambassador-at-large for religious freedom, the Chinese lawyer was spirited into custody by police.

Thanks. God bless.
