PLEASE PRAY: Imprisoned Christian Activist Denied Medical Parole [#PleasePray #HuShigen #ChinaPersecution #ChristianPersecution] 09/11
A prominent Chinese house church leader and rights activist who has been behind bars since 2016, is still denied medical parole, according to his family.
Chinese human rights watchdog Civil Rights and Livelihood Watch reported on September 5, 2020 that elder Hu Shigen was visited by his family at the Tianjin Prison Hospital last month.
Due to the pandemic, the prison only allowed his younger sister to meet him virtually instead of face-to-face visit.
His brother told Beijing-based activist Liu Yue that elder Hu Shigen’s health is generally acceptable.
Given his Coronary Artery Disease and other chronic disease history before his imprisonment, Hu Shigen has been staying at the prison’s hospital.
Although his family has repeatedly applied for medical parole for him, it is still being denied.
Medical parole seems unlikely in the near future.
