According to information received by the Australian office of The Voice of the Martyrs, Pastor Li-Dexian, a well-known house church leader in China, was arrested on Thursday April 11, 2002. A trusted courier carried the information to the VOM office

VOM has reported the frequent arrests and ill-treatment of Pastor Li during the past several years. After a lull of some months the authorities took action again last week. The information indicates that Li-Dexian was conducting an evangelistic meeting on April 4 in Hua Du, Guangdong Province, when representatives of the PSB descended upon the group shouting it was an illegal gathering. Br. Li and his wife, Zhao Xia, together with four others were apprehended and taken away by the police. The six were questioned for some hours after which five were released, but Pastor Li-Dexian was kept in jail. It is expected Li will be held at least until April 25 - the mandatory period that he can be held without a charge. His wife will try to visit him during the week to seek further information. VOM representatives will monitor the situation and how Pastor Li is treated and make information available as developments take place. Pray for a quick release of Pastor Li-Dexian.
