LAOS: Christians Arrested


Bird Mod
In Southern Laos, two Christian men have been taken from their farms and put in prison. No charges have been filed and no news is forthcoming about their current situation.

In North Central Laos, on 18 January, five police officers showed up at a Christian brother's home and arrested him. VOM sources have known him and his family for 20 years. His wife and 12-year-old son did not get an opportunity to speak to him before he was taken away. All efforts to locate him or allow his wife to know where he is being detained have been unsuccessful.

According to VOM contacts, in several similar incidents, the people taken by police were never found alive.
