China Jails Christian Lawyer, Says He’s ‘Subverting State Power’


China has one of the worst human rights abuse records in the world and is known for persecuting Christians across its country.

A Chinese court has convicted a well-known Christian human rights lawyer of subverting state power, and sentenced him to three years in prison, reports Fox News.

Li Heping was detained in July 2015 in a crackdown on rights lawyers and activists by Chinese authorities.

The Tianjin No. 2 Intermediate People’s Court said Friday the trial was held Tuesday behind closed doors due to the case involving state secrets. The court claimed that since 2008 Li had repeatedly used the internet and interviews with foreign media to discredit and attack state power and the legal system.
