Family of China Activist Against Force Abortions Abducted
Linyi, China (LifeNews.com) -- Local authorities who have detained Chen Guangcheng, an activist against forced abortions, have snatched his elderly mother and three-year old son from Beijing and forced them to live under house arrest near Chen's home. Meanwhile, Chen's attorneys have finally been allowed to meet with him to help him with his case.
They were taken to the house of Chen's older brother, Chen Guangfu, who told Radio Free Asia that they have been prohibited from leaving even though Chen's mother has become ill.
"Mother said she had a headache and was feeling unwell, so requested permission to go to the hospital. But they refused, sending a doctor to look at her instead," he told RFA.
Chen's wife, Yuan Weijing, who has been under tight surveillance at their home in Yinan county, said the number of local officials who have been standing guard outside her door has increased now that a team of attorneys is in town to try to help Chen.
