Must Sign for Freedom

In September, the chief of B village in a southern province called a special community meeting to resolve the “problem” of eight resident Christian families who have refused to give up their faith. The meeting concluded with plans to expel all 55 Christians from the village.

Although all adult members of a village are usually invited to such meetings, on this occasion the Christian s were deliberately excluded. Pastor S and two other believers from the village, C and K, remain in detention in the nearby district police detention cell. It was earlier reported that police have held the men in handcuffs and wooden foot stocks since their arrest on Aug. 3, causing numbness and infection in their legs and feet due to lack of blood circulation. Authorities have said they will release the three only if they renounce their faith.

Remember those suffering for the sake of Jesus.

Laotian Believers Locked in Stocks for Refusing to Deny Faith

[lang_en]

Christians were reportedly locked in wooden stocks for not renouncing their faith in Laos where serious rights violations were widespread in 2004. In a story released by Associated Press, Amnesty International said in its annual report that human rights abuses were widespread in the communist-ruled country, one of Asia’s poorest, including religious and racial persecution and abuse of political and other detainees by authorities. Foreign Ministry spokesman Yong Chantalangsy denied that anyone had been placed in stocks for any reason and said allegations of religious persecution in Laos were “groundless.” He said, however, “that some Protestant sects had proselytized in aggressive and inappropriate ways that may have caused trouble with local people.”
