MIDLAND, Texas (KOSA) - Accusations of Chinese Communist Party membership were at the heart of a protest in front of a Midland pastor’s home.

Bob Fu is a pastor and the founder of China Aid, a non-profit aiming to help persecuted Christians in China.

But recently, Miles Kwok, who the New York Times called an “exiled billionaire whistle-blower,” took to YouTube to announce that he was sending protesters to Fu’s house because he says Fu is a communist spy.

Fu says it is Kwok who is the communist.

Midland Mayor Patrick Payton weighed in on the matter at a special news conference.

The City of Midland tells CBS7 that one person was taken into custody for trespassing at Fu’s home.

According to a Washington Post article from last month, Kwok, also known as Miles Guo, fled China after being accused of bribery and other crimes.
