Chinese police detain bookseller Gui Minhai again, daughter says

AKIPRESS.COM - Chinese agents have seized Swedish citizen and Hong Kong-based bookseller Gui Minhai from a Beijing-bound train while in the company of two Swedish diplomats, his daughter said.

Gui was taken away on Saturday by plainclothes police, Angela Gui told Radio Sweden, adding she is concerned for the safety of her father who was released from Chinese custody in October. His whereabouts since then have remained unclear, Reuters reported.

Angela Gui said her father was being escorted by two Swedish diplomats to seek medical attention for a neurological disorder known as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

“They were on the train for five hours, I think, and, at one of the stops before Beijing, there were about 10 men in plainclothes that came in and said they were from the police and just grabbed him and just took him away. And after that I haven’t heard anything,” Angela Gui said.

Gui Minhai was abducted in Thailand while on holiday in 2015, one of five Hong Kong booksellers who went missing that year and later appeared in mainland Chinese custody. The four others have returned to Hong Kong.
