A Human Rights Activist And A Secret Prison In China.

Peter Dahlin, a Swedish human rights activist, was arrested in early 2016 and kept incommunicado for 23 days, interrogated, and eventually expelled.

The clampdown under President Xi since November 2012 has been relentless, as the State attempts to suppress any normal expressions of human rights of her citizens, and foreigners too have not been exempted. I cannot imagine the steeper level of torture and indignities that is probably meted out to Chinese citizens, having read Mr Dahlin’s account.
