Jail time for 14 followers of killer cult

A total of 14 members of a mainland religious cult have been jailed for up to three years, the latest sentences after two others were executed this year for killing a woman.

Nine members of the banned Quannengshen group were convicted of "undermining the implementation of laws by making use of cult organizations" in Hubei.

The sentences ranged from 18 months to three years.

A court in Liaoning sentenced five members to prison terms of two or three years. The punishments were for "spreading cult propaganda."

Followers of Quannengshen translated as Church of Almighty God believe that Jesus has been reincarnated as a Chinese woman the wife of the cult's founder.

The organization appeared in the 1990s and the founder and his wife fled to the United States in 2000.

A father and daughter who belonged to Quannengshen were executed in February after being convicted of beating a woman to death at a McDonald's restaurant, after she rebuffed their recruiting bid.

Three others including another of the executed man's daughters were given prison terms ranging from seven years to life.

Earlier this month Xinhua reported that the spiritual leader of a Chinese Buddhist sect would be prosecuted for financial and sexual offenses.

Beijing has cracked down harshly on religious groups, mostly notably on the Falun Gong movement which was banned in the late 1990s.

It has submitted to its rubber-stamp parliament a new law which includes harsher punishments for those involved in "cults or superstitious activities."
