Chinese activist Li Guizhi was stopped at the Hong Kong border when she tried to enter the city to join the annual protest on July 1, the South China Morning Post reported, citing Li.
The activist was then tracked down and held by Chinese police at a hotel basement in Hebei province, until she escaped to an unspecified location with the help of Hong Kong-based People’s Right of Union of China, SCMP reported.
Li, 57, wanted to go to Hong Kong to speak out about the 2006 death of her policeman son, the Post said.
