Suspects Arrested at Chinese “Secret Police Station”

Two U.S. citizens are accused of pressuring Chinese detractors in New York City.

U.S. federal agents arrested two Chinese Americans in Manhattan’s Chinatown this week for allegedly operating a “secret police station” on behalf of the Chinese government to intimidate Chinese dissidents. U.S. authorities claim that Lu Jianwang and Chen Jinping pressured former Chinese citizens critical of the Chinese government and tried to make them return to China. They are charged with conspiring to act as illegal agents of a foreign government and obstruction of justice.

“We cannot and will not tolerate the Chinese government’s persecution of pro-democracy activists who have sought refuge in this country,” stated Breon Peace, the top federal prosecutor in Brooklyn.

The Chinese government has denied these allegations.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For federal prosecutors as they bring evidence against the U.S. citizens accused of working with the Chinese government.
  • For FBI officials as they investigate individuals acting as agents for foreign nations.
  • For the people who have been targeted for disagreeing with China’s policies and actions.
