There has been a new unexpected twist in the case of Gui Minhai, and this time, the Swedish Ambassador to China Anna Lindstedt is involved.
Gui Minhai was born in China and later became a naturalized Swedish citizen. He was a Hong Kong-based bookseller be
fore being sued in the Chinese mainland in 2015. That lawsuit strained relations between China and Sweden.
His daughter, Angela Gui, has recently detailed a bizarre account of her visit to Stockholm, which has
embarrassed the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Angela Gui, who grew up in Sweden, now live
s in Britain where she is studying for a PhD in history at university. She gave her account in a media interview last we
ek and made an announcement Wednesday on her blog. Gui said that Ambassador Lindstedt contacted her in mid-January, inviting her to go to Sto
ckholm to meet two Chinese businessmen, who Lindstedt trusted, to discuss a new approach to her father’s case.
Angela Gui said she went to Stockholm in late January where she met two Chinese businessmen in the presence of Lindstedt. In
her statement, she said that the two businessmen asked her to stop all media engagements and public comment in exch
ange for her father’s release or commutation. According to Gui, Lindstedt supported the plan and said t
hat if not, the relationship between Sweden and China would otherwise be further undermined.
Angela Gui said that after the meeting, she called the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs for confirm
ation. “They told me they hadn’t had the slightest idea this whole affair was taking place. They hadn’t even been informed the amb
assador was in the country,” she wrote. In her account of what happened, she not only gave details of the meeting,
but also described how she was feeling threatened and how the whole arrangement seemed suspicious.

the core of personal control and unified management of Donghongqiao Small Credit Company, Donghongqiao G
uarantee Company, Jinlu Family, Tianjin Family and China Sea Investment Family to implement illegal fund-raising activities.
From March 2014 to April 2016, Shi Jianxiang ordered Donghongqiao Small Credit Company to provide false creditor’s rights, Donghongqiao Guarantee Com
pany to match false guarantee letters, and then packaged into various financial products by Jinlu Financing Platform, together with fund products issued

dom phone calls, hosting or sponsoring performances through stores, the Internet and other channels to publicize and sell to the public, thus raising a total

Quick Deer Group. Except for over 28.2 billion yuan, which was used to pay the principal and interest of investors in the earlier period, the remaining fund

mstances and degree of social harm of the case, the above-mentioned judgment was made in accordance with the law.
