Hong Kong-based publisher Yao Wentian (also known as Yiu Mantin) has been detained in China for three months, according to his family. Yao was preparing to publish a book by Yu Jie about Xi Jinping. The South China Morning Post reports:
Yao Wentian, 73, the chief editor of Morning Bell Press, was taken into custody on October 27 after he was “lured” to Shenzhen on the pretence of delivering paint to a long-time friend, said a person who has spoken to Yao’s wife.
