MIDLAND, Texas, Dec. 9, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — JOINT

SETTLEMENT STATEMENT regarding the Spyware Controversy.

Signed by Rev. Bob Xiqiu Fu, Heidi Bochun Cai, ChinaAid and Professor Jerome Cohen, New York University.

China Aid and its President, Reverend Bob Fu, Professor Jerome Cohen and New York University are all pleased to announce that they have resolved a misunderstanding related to their successful efforts to bring the blind Chinese human rights activist Chen Guangcheng to the United States in May 2012.

Professor Cohen and NYU have confirmed that, contrary to media reports, an iPad and iPhone given to Mr. Chen by China Aid contained no software designed to monitor communications or spy on Mr. Chen.  Professor Cohen and NYU regret that media reports may have had any negative impact on Bob Fu, his wife Heidi Cai, or China Aid. Reverend Fu and China Aid recognize the important contributions of Professor Cohen to the cause of human rights in China and believe that his and NYU’s statements in connection with this matter were made in good faith based on a misunderstanding of technology.

All of the parties reaffirm their common support for the human rights of the Chinese people.

Signed by:

Rev. Bob Xiqiu Fu
