Although the Chinese government has finally acknowledged that it has detained Lee, there’s still no information about his precise charge or location. The secrecy surrounding his case and the government’s record of mistreating activists raise concerns about Lee’s well-being. Human Rights Watch calls on the Chinese government to release him, and to allow him access to family and lawyers. Lee’s detention, which follows that of Swedish NGO worker Peter Dahlin and the coming into effect of Foreign NGO Management Law, sends a deep chill through the civil societies of Taiwan and Hong Kong.
