Taiwanese publisher Li Yanhe, founder of Gusa Press, has been arrested in China “on suspicion of engaging in activities damaging national security.” IPA is concerned that the detention relates to books published in Taiwan which are not available in China.

Gusa Press, founded in 2009 has published books like Red Penetration: The Truth About Chinese Media's Global Expansion and Blind Lawyer: A Human Rights Fighter Looking for Light in Dark China.

Kristenn Einarsson, Chair of the IPA’s Freedom to Publish Committee said: “IPA is concerned at the detention of Li Yanhe, particularly if it relates to books he has published. We will continue to monitor his case.”
