Lao Officials Confiscate Church Buildings

Lao officials have confiscated and sealed a church building in Savannakhet Province in southern Laos after holding a two-day seminar warning against religious belief, according to advocacy group Human Rights Watch for Lao Religious Freedom (HRWLRF).  Besides sealing the church building they also warned that other unrecognized churches would soon be shut down. Communist Party officials along with the deputy chief of police, and head of religious affairs, ordered all villages to attend the seminar entitled “Tricks of the Enemy.” According to villagers present at the seminar, the officials declared that Westerners, particularly those from the United States, were using the Christian faith to destabilize the government.

They then declared that the 745 Christians in the village could only meet in private homes.
