The website Axios is reporting that a University of Minnesota student has been jailed in China after posting critical comments of Chinese President Xi Jinping on social media.
Citing online Chinese court documents, Axios reported that 20-year-old Luo Daiqing was detained in July 2019 in Wuhan, China, which is his hometown. Daiquing, who was in China while on break from school, had reportedly posted images and contents on Twitter in September and October 2018 that were unflattering to the Chinese leader while he was still in the United States.
Campus Reform is unable to independently verify Axios‘ reporting. However, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), who sits on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, tweeted about the situation. MORE
