  • Belgium: killing petition

    Christian Concern

    The Bill to allow Belgian children of all ages to access euthanasia is being opposed by people all across Europe, via a petition organised just hours after the Bill was voted through in mid-February.

    Although there are concerns that it will produce a constitutional crisis if the Bill isn’t signed by the Belgian monarch, the aim of the petition is to protect the vulnerable.

  • China: postponement

    Christian Solidarity Worldwide

    Chinese Pastor Zhang Shaojie’s trial date, which had been set for February 21, has been ‘indefinitely postponed’, according to lawyers quoted by China Aid.

    Previously moved from January 28 and then from February 12, his lawyer was notified of the most recent postponement by text message just three days before the scheduled date. No reason was given for the postponement, but it is thought that the court is awaiting instruction from their superiors.
