A church leader remains in prison while officials wait for an end to the “COVID-19 situation”.
Phong was arrested in early March after refusing police orders to renounce his faith. About 130 Christians live in Phong’s village, and police thought that arresting him would cure their Christian “problem”.
Phong’s wife said police are demanding that Christians turn in all Bibles, hymn books and other Christian materials and renounce their faith.
Although she was at first able to visit Phong in prison and take him food, no one is allowed to visit the prison now because of the coronavirus. The authorities told Phong’s wife that they are waiting for the “COVID-19 situation to be over before they charge her husband with a crime.”
