United Nations Defends China's
Torturing of Christians

Bob Fu, president of China Aid Association, presented details of the religious abuses committed by Chinese officials against members of the underground house churches in China, including the use of electric-shock batons used to torture Christians. The Chinese ambassador objected to the presentation. The U.N. Commission on Human Rights ordered Fu to leave the complex and had the baton and his badge confiscated. "I was supposed to talk about and expose the human rights violations in countries like China, and [the assembly] unfortunately became a bully pulpit for the human rights violators themselves" said Fu.

  • Daily torture of religious minorities in Chinese prisons and detention centres is common
  • Religious prisoners regularly endure horrific psychological torture
