Chinese officials have allegedly forced Christians incarcerated in China’s southern Guangdong province to confess that they had participated in “evil cult” activities.

According to China Aid, authorities arrested a Christian man named Ruan Haonan and took him to the police station on June 12. Ruan, a member of Fengle Church who hosts Christian gatherings in his home, was reportedly interrogated and forced by the officials to confess to participating in cult activities. When he refused, he was detained and transferred to a detention center.

One June 13, Ruan was allegedly coerced by the officials to sign a transcript of the interrogation.
