Ambassador’s statement on detained Swede

Ambassador-Lars-Freden

Sweden’s Ambassador to China Lars Fredén made the following statement on 4 March 2016:

“The detained Swedish citizen Gui Minhai recently, once again, appeared on Chinese television. We again express our concern over this type of public ‘confessions’, something that many hoped had ended in China decades ago. In a country ruled by law, charges are brought in court, and the defendant responds to charges only in the presence of legal counsel.”
