Coronavirus 'Pray for Wuhan'The founder of a non-profit Christian human rights organization says the citizen journalist and lawyer whom China has imprisoned for telling the truth deserves international intervention and prayer.

Bob Fu of ChinaAid tells One News Now citizen journalist and lawyer Zhang Zhan traveled to Wuhan, whence the virus broke out, and sounded the alarm in the beginning about how it was spreading and that it was already claiming lives. Her crime was telling the truth, so Communists kidnapped and jailed her for six months before granting a sham trial, where she was charged with picking quarrels and provoking trouble.

"She did not pick any quarrel with anyone when she traveled to Wuhan in February and [reported] and [interviewed] those people who got infected by the COVID-19, which the Chinese Communist government is covering up," Fu asserts.

In her trial on Monday, the court would not allow Zhang Zhan's attorneys to present evidence, and she was sentenced to four years in prison, even though her medical condition is dire.

"She was tortured for over six months when she started a hunger strike … for fasting and prayer. Then she was put on forced feeding tube," Fu explains about Zhan, a professing Christian.

The 6'4" woman was so weak she could not stand and was in a wheelchair during the trial.

Fu believes the case ought to spark international outrage over religious freedom, freedom of speech, and the rule of law. He also believes Zhang Zhan's persecutors should be held accountable and that every government of conscience should demand her freedom. Until then, the ChinaAid founder is calling for international prayer on her behalf.

China's virus case count is estimated to be ten times higher than what it is reporting.
