In China, a court sentenced bookseller Gui Minhai to 10 years in prison. The Chinese-Swedish owner of a Hong Kong-based bookstore first disappeared in 2015 before reappearing in Chinese custody several months later. He was detained again in 2018. Human rights and press freedom advocates called out his detention as politically motivated since he published sensitive materials on China’s ruling elite, including President Xi Jinping.
