Wang Yi Unable to Meet with Lawyer as Investigation Ends

Court agents informed the lawyer for imprisoned pastor Wang Yi that the government’s investigation into the pastor has concluded — even though the pastor’s lawyers have not met with him since his arrest. Pastor Wang’s lead lawyer, Zhang Peihong, said he applied to visit his client on July 17, but that the receptionist at the Chengdu Detention Center said he Wang was not available. Two officials later told the lawyer that Wang “looked like he was losing weight, but looked very good mentally.” They also told him there was a rumor circulating that his hair had turned grey and that he had lost teeth. After his arrest on Dec. 9, 2018, authorities charged Wang with inciting subversion of state power and illegal business operations. They also detained his wife for six months in an unofficial prison. Pray for Pastor Wang and for his wife and son.
