Renowned human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng is being held by authorities Beijing, his brother finally learned after a stressful three weeks of not knowing what had happened to his high-profile brother.
Gao disappeared from his home in Shaanxi province on Aug. 13, where he’d been living under house arrest. For three weeks, nobody had any contact with him and several family members, including his elder brother, Gao Zhiyi, were summoned by police.
On Sept. 6, Gao Zhiyi learned that his brother was in Beijing.
“I have news now. He was taken to Beijing. So he is definitely in [the Chinese regime’s] hands. We don’t know about the rest. That’s all we know,” Gao Zhiyi told Gao’s wife, Geng He, who currently lives in California.
Geng He confirmed the news with NTD TV on Sept. 6.
