UCA News (05.10.2016) – – More than 22,000 people have signed an online petition demanding that Chinese authorities release a Vatican-approved bishop who has been taken to one of China’s more remote provinces.


The signature campaign for the release of underground Bishop Peter Shao Zhumin, offered in seven languages on online petition website CitizenGO, is addressed to Chinese, American and European Union ambassadors.


Chinese authorities have “detained and re-located” Bishop Shao, “away from his home diocese,” said the petition which added that authorities did this to stop him from being “installed as the new, senior bishop (and, full administrator) of Zhejiang (Wenzhou).”
