advocate Lee Ming-che (李明哲) who has been detained in China since March 19, said Sunday night she will not accept blackmail from anyone and she called on Beijing to understand her good will and self- restraint.

Lee issued a statement in response to an earlier statement of China’s Taiwan Affairs Office that an unnamed organization had been authorized to send private messages and personal letters from her detained husband to her and to his parents in Taiwan.

She called the Beijing delegate “a broker,” quoting the broker as telling her to “remain low profile and cooperative” so Lee Ming-che will be released soon but if she insists on taking a scheduled flight to Beijing to make her appeals, then a “TV in Guangdong Province will immediately broadcast a film of Lee Ming-che confessing to his crime.”
