TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taiwanese songwriter Yuan We-ren (袁惟仁) was freed after being confined against his will for one week in mainland China, local media reported Friday.
Yuan returned to Taiwan Thursday night, according to Chinese-language United Daily News (UDN) reported Friday.
UDN said it had received a tip that Yuan, 48, was being confined over a “money dispute” related to his performances in mainland China.
He was freed with the help of Alex Tsai (蔡正元), director of the Kuomintang’s central policy committee.
Both Yuan and Tsai reportedly confirmed the incident, but both declined to elaborate further. [FULL STORY]
