Chinese bishop released after latest detention
November 11, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Shao Zhumin of Wenzhou has been released, about two weeks after he was taken into police custody. (He was arrested on October 25; it is not yet clear when he was freed.) Local officials said that he was away on holiday.
Bishop Shao, who is not recognized by the government, has been detained repeatedly for similar periods, as officials seek to persuade him to join the government-controlled Patriotic Catholic Association.
