"Nanle County Christian Church member Zhao Guoli was allowed to meet with his lawyer on Thursday, February 20, for the first time since he was taken into police custody on November 15, 2013. Zhao Guoli went missing when he and several other Nanle church members travelled to Beijing to express their concern at the detention of their pastor, Zhang Shaojie (Prisoners of Faith Alert, December 2013). Zhao, with his wife Li Bianling, runs the Nanle church orphanage, which has been in financial trouble since the local government froze the church's assets in November 2013. The orphanage currently cares for about nine children."
