Reason for Arrest:
On October 24, 2017, police officers with the National Security Brigade of Heze Public Security Bureau Mudan Branch arrested Liu Junhua and other three Christians (Wu Baozhen, Yao Shuzhi, Shao Fujian) from The Church of Almighty God because of their engagement in the scriptwriting work of the Church.
On August 8, 2018, the Mudan District People’s Court sentenced Liu Junhua, Wu Baozhen, and Yao Shuzhi to 10 years’ imprisonment and a fine of 50,000 RMB (about 7,300 USD).
Liu, Wu and Yao appealed against their sentence to the Heze Intermediate People’s Court in Shandong. On October 9, 2018, the Court dismissed the petition and upheld the original conviction. They three were later transferred to Weibei Prison of Shandong Province to serve their sentence.
Liu Junhua was reportedly sentenced to 1 year re-education through labor by the CCP police in September 2006 because of his belief in Almighty God.
His Criminal Judgement was released on China Judgments Online on December 19, 2018.
- Liu Junhua is held in the Weibei Prison of Shandong Province in China.
