January 06, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A Chinese court has indicted a Hong Kong businessman who allegedly brought thousands of Bibles to a banned Christian group in China, a human rights organization said.

The court in the city of Fuqing said Li Guangqiang, 38, had "used a cult to undermine the enforcement of the law," the organization said. It said Li might face the death penalty.

Li is accused of taking 33,080 Bibles to the Shouters Sect in 2001. The sect's charismatic style of worship includes shouting out prayers.
