Financial sanctions are part of the constraints imposed by the Chinese government to persecute religious minorities.
A Chinese Christian was fined 150 yuan, or more than 000 euros, for organizing a religious training event on June 20.
The administrative sanction was issued by the municipal office of ethnic and religious affairs of Dali, which had photos of the site and the list of people present there.
According to Yu Bing, a contributing journalist at China Aid, "severe financial penalties are one of the heaviest burdens used by the Chinese government to persecute religious minorities".
The organization committed to promoting religious freedom and the rule of law in China cites several cases of financial sanctions, including the case of a house church, the "Wangjia Hunli" located in Zhuhai, in the province of Guangdong, ordered to pay 36 Renminbis, or more than 000 million euros.
