Christian activist accused of being CCP spy but there's a twist

China's Xi in front of CCP meetA longtime critic of China’s communist state is being accused of spying for the CCP by a Chinese-born billionaire who is himself accused of being a spy with the job of going after dissidents.

In a showdown that mirrors a Tom Clancy novel, New York City billionaire Guo Wengui is accusing longtime activist Bob Fu of being a spy.

Under orders from Wengui, more than 50 protesters have descended on Fu’s home in Midland, Texas to march outside his home and denounce him as a spy.

Fu, a born-again Christian, fled China in the 1990s through Hong Kong after the Communist government arrested him and his wife for evangelizing and running a secret ministry. Once in the U.S., he founded China Aid, which spreads news about China’s persecution of the fast-growing Church.

Fu, who was hunted down and arrested after participating in the Tiananmen Square protests, has been interviewed by OneNewsNow numerous times for persecution stories. Yet the longtime Chinese dissident has witnessed his home and neighborhood turn into a protest zone thanks to Wengui. 

Fu

Without naming the billionaire by name, China Aid spokesman Logan Carmichael tells OneNewsNow that some “bad actors” are harassing Fu and his family because a wealthy person sent the protesters and encouraged violence against Fu, too.

According to local media reports, Fu and his family are being protected by law enforcement officials and the family is under protective custody due to threats.

According to Carmichael, ChinaAid is in contact with the FBI and the State Department over the protests and the billionaire’s claims.

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz stated in a Twitter post that the CCP is to blame for harassing Fu, who was called a “fearless voice for human rights” by the Texas senator.

The senator’s tweet was followed by numerous Twitter accounts claiming Fu is a CCP spy and Cruz is being misled.

Guo Wengui, however, could just as easily be a spy after coming to the United States under the claim he was escaping from Communist leaders. Last year, federal court documents filed against Wengui in a contract dispute described the billionaire as a “dissident-hunter” and “agent” for the Chinese Communist Party, The Miami Herald reported last year, after the billionaire was photographed at Mar-a-Lago.

According to the story, a Hong Kong-based firm paid a Virginia-based research firm $1 million to dig up information on 15 Chinese nationals living in the U.S. The two firms discussed the contract for “high quality” research in a Manhattan apartment, home of Wengui. But the research given to the Hong Kong firm proved to be lackluster and the lawsuit was filed to get back the $1 million.

It is unclear from the Herald Story if Fu is one of the 15 people whose information was sought by the Hong Kong firm.
