In Wenzhou city – also dubbed “China’s Jerusalem” – teams of three government officials will now monitor the activities of religious groups by keeping their meeting-places under observation, International Christian Concern (ICC) reports.

Alongside other requirements, the groups must align their teachings with the agenda of the government. The teams will also check if religious activities are taking place in the stated locations, whether those activities are run by foreigners and whether they were pre-approved according to the law. Each team will be responsible for a specific religious venue.
