China: Christian lawyer Gao disappears again

China: Christian lawyer Gao disappears again

Concerns are growing for the safety of the Chinese Christian lawyer Gao Zhisheng, who has not been seen since April.

“He is definitely in the hands of Chinese security forces,” said Bob Fu, president of the US-based rights organization ChinaAid.

Gao, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, traveled to Xinjiang province at the end of April to visit relatives. He left to board a flight back to Beijing and has not been seen since. It is the second time he has disappeared in a little over a year.

"The government clearly has no desire to release him or allow him to rejoin his wife and two children, who have fled to the United States", ChinaAid said in a statement.
