China confirms arrest of Christian dissident--after 20 months
CWN - January 02, 2012
China’s government has finally admitted the arrest of a Christian human-rights activist who was taken into custody in February 2009.
The Beijing regime revealed that Gao Zhisheng is being held in the remote Xinjiang province, for “violating the terms of his probation.” Previously, no information about the dissident’s location, or the charges against him, had been disclosed.
