Vietnamese authorities still looking for missing man

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – A Taiwanese man disappeared in Vietnam, apparently shortly after he
announced he planned to travel to the nearby Chinese province of Guangxi, reports said Tuesday.
The case reminded some commentators of the disappearance of Lee Ming-che (李明哲), the former Democratic Progressive Party and human rights activist who went missing after he crossed from Macau into China last March 19. Beijing later admitted it had detained him on suspicion of so-called subversive activities.
In the case of a man named Chiu (邱), no such political link was immediately known, reports said.
The Taiwanese citizen arrived in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi on June 10 and had been scheduled to return home on June 12, but lost contact with his relatives. He was believed to have wanted to travel to Nanning (南寧) in the Chinese province of Guangxi before heading home, reports said. [FULL STORY]
