A Chinese-American who advocates for democracy and religious freedom in China remains under attack.
OneNewsNow has reported that since late September, Guo Wengui, a Chinese billionaire living in New York, has paid for protesters almost daily at the Midland, Texas home of Bob Fu, founder of ChinaAid. Now, Julian Marley, a spokesperson for Fu, tells OneNewsNow his boss is taking action.
"Recently we officially released a letter with Bob asking Mr. Guo to basically retract his statements he's made against ChinaAid and Bob that are just not true," Marley details.
He goes on to note some of the false allegations against Fu.
"They claim Bob Fu is a fake pastor. You know, that's patently false," the spokesman asserts. "The pastor at Mid-Cities [Community] Church over here in Midland released a letter saying Bob's been literally on staff for many years and certainly is indeed a real pastor."
The billionaire has also accused Fu of being a Communist Party spy, which is also false. Further, ChinaAid has been accused of involvement in human trafficking, which is again not true.
Fu and his family have faced serious death threats, prompting police to move the family into housing at an undisclosed location for their protection.
Fu was imprisoned in China for his religious beliefs and practices and his promotion of democracy. He and his family were able to escape China in 1996 and make their way to the United States, where he formed ChinaAid to fight for what he believes in for China.
So far, Guo Wengui has not responded to Fu's letter.
