They group held free medical clinics, evangelizing among those who came for medical attention, through the rural parts of the region.

A local resident in a small town attempted to warn them of police coming, but they were stopped down the road by Domestic Security Protection agents of the Public Security Bureau, who detained them at the Horqin Right Front Banner police station and confiscated their van, medical equipment including an EKG machine and a laptop.

Domestic Security Protection agents notified the families of the detainees and said they were being held for engaging in illegal evangelism.

The six detainees were:

  • Chen Hong (male) (of Tongliao city, Inner Mongolia)  
  • Sun Yuefen (female) (of Ulanhot, Inner Mongolia)  
  • Yinhua (Mongolian) (of Tongliao city, Inner Mongolia)  
  • Ren Zhimin (of Heilongjiang province)  
  • Liu Di (from Nen River County, Heilongjiang province; enrolled in Harbin Medical College)  
  • Pan Wenwen (from Changbai county, Baishan city, Jilin province Baishan Mayor White County; enrolled in Changchun School of Medicine)

The Re-education Through Labor Management Committee of Hinggan League handed down its decision notification sentencing Ms. Sun and Ms. Ren to two years in a re-education-through-labor camp. Following that, authorities detained several others who were involved in this evangelistic effort.

Several have been detained for periods of time since then.

ChinaAid urges the local government to immediately release Ms. Sun.
