(BEIJING) – A Chinese human rights activist detained by police during the Olympic Games has returned to Beijing, a human rights group said Tuesday.

Zeng Jinyan and her infant daughter, who were taken one day before the Aug. 8 start of the games to prevent her from speaking to journalists, were brought back to the city over the weekend, said Chinese Human Rights Defenders in a statement.

The spokesman’s office of the Public Security Bureau had no immediate comment on Zeng’s case.

In a brief telephone conversation, Zeng said she would be back at her apartment Tuesday afternoon but could not give any more details because she was being monitored.[continues…]

  1. It’s good to hear that Jinyan and child are OK, disgraceful though their detention was in the first place. Let’s hope that Hu Jia’s release is imminent.

    James Reynold’s over at the BBC website ponders whether Hu Jia might be in line for a Nobel Peace Prize. There would be no more deserving winner.
