The wife of a church leader was beaten by officials at her home after they had summoned her husband for questioning.
Police went to the home of Mrs Li in Shenyang, in the north-eastern Liaoning province, on 27 May while her husband was out. When she asked to see their warrant, they began to beat her.
“They pushed me on the bed and covered my mouth and bound my hands and feet with packing tape. When I tried to get free, they beat me again,” Li said.
Officers later threatened to bar her son from local schools and force the family’s landlord to evict them. Mrs Li’s ID card had been confiscated the previous day.
Her husband, Pastor Wang Zhongliang, had been summoned to meet with the Shenyang Domestic Security Protection Squad the day after to discuss the distribution of religious flyers.
