China Aid Association learned that jailed Beijing house church leader is sentenced to 3 years on Tuesday, November 8, 2005.(Beijing Time)
The presiding judge, You Tao, announced the verdict to two defense lawyers Mr. Zhang Xingshui and Mr. Jin Xiaoguang at 9am. Pastor Cai’s wife Ms. Xiao Yunfei and her brother Mr. Xiao Gaowen were sentenced to two years and one and a half years respectively. Mr. Xiao Gaowen’s wife Ms. Hu Jinyun was exempt from the criminal punishment. She was expected to be released after her lawyer finishes relevant legal papers. Mr. Cai’s mother along with Ms. Xiao Yunfei’s parents were present in the court room when the verdict was announced.
According to pastor Cai’s legal team, pastor Cai has decided to appeal to Beijing Intermediate Court for further trial.
“This is not an acceptable result,” said Bob Fu, President of CAA and a former coworker of Pastor Cai. “We urge President Bush to use his upcoming visit to China to address this serious religious persecution case.”
