While the Chinese government has officially stated that editor and bookseller Gui Minhai has been released, doubts remain over his status and his whereabouts are unknown. Gui disappeared over two years ago in Thailand while on holiday, only to turn up in China three months later on trial for a traffic accident. It is believed that his abduction was related to his work in Hong Kong as a seller of political books. Gui’s abduction is not an isolated one. A number of other Hong Kong based journalists and book sellers have been detained by Chinese authorities in the last few years.
