Chinese megachurch pastor imprisoned for faith in Jesus hit with more charges
The pastor of Early Rain Covenant Church in China is facing new charges from the communist government seven months after he was arrested alongside 100 members of his congregation.
In addition to ‚Äúinciting subversion‚ÄĚ and attempting to turn people against the Chinese government, Wang has now been charged with ‚Äúillegal business activity,‚ÄĚ Radio Free Asia reports.
A local Christian told the outlet that the so-called illegal business charge is likely due to the fact that authorities have little evidence to support the subversion charge, which can result in up to 10 years‚Äô imprisonment.
