Short Summary
According to CRLW (1 January 16), RDN (6 April 15, 8 September 15), and RFA (8 September 15, 22 June 16), on or around January 19, 2015, public security officials in Wuhan municipality, Hubei province, detained Zhao Suli. Zhao is the wife of democracy advocate Qin Yongmin, whom Wuhan police detained on January 9. Zhao’s relatives reportedly confirmed Zhao’s detention, but said authorities did not issue any documents confirming her whereabouts or on what basis they were holding her. RDN (5 February 18) reported that Zhao had returned to her Wuhan home on an unknown date prior to February 5, 2018, after over 3 years of "enforced disappearance." Details of Zhao's detention, including accusations against her, if any, where she was held, or her condition in detention, were unavailable. Zhao married Qin in December 2013. Qin was a founder of the banned China Democracy Party, and more recently founded a non-governmental organization called China Human Rights Watch. Authorities have detained Qin numerous times in the past for his democracy and human rights advocacy.
