One of five missing booksellers returns to Hong Kong

Hong Kong, March 5 (IANS) One of the five missing booksellers from Hong Kong who went missing in October 2015, has returned to the city state, the media reported on Saturday.

Hong Kong police confirmed in a statement that Lui Por had returned to Hong Kong on Friday, EFE news reported.

The police added that Lui wants the missing person case about him dropped and that he does not need any help from the government or police.

Lui was shown in footage released by Phoenix Television earlier this week “confessing” his ties to banned book sales in China.

He, along with four others — Cheung Chi-ping, Lam Wing-kee, Gui Minhai and Lee Bo — had worked at Causeway Bay Books in Hong Kong, a shop known for its books critical of the Chinese government.

Cheung and Lam are reportedly to be released on bail soon. However, the fates of Gui and Lee are as yet unknown.
