Re: "Hong Kong publisher kidnapped in Thailand and taken to China"

Update 7 February 2018, on Gui Minhai, the HK-based published and writer kidnapped from Thailand in October 2015, then detained in China and forced (twice, in 2016) to make false confessions on Chinese state TV, and detained until October 2017 when the Chinese authorities said he was free. He is a Swedish citizen only, and two weeks ago, my country's embassy had arranged for him to travel to our embassy and see a doctor for the grave signs of illness that he has developed while in Chinese detention.
