From the reports of Radio Free Asia , Jinrui’s father was taken away by the Chinese police for a long time of questioning, asking things like “Does this child of yours take part in pro-democracy activities?” and “Do they love their country and the ruling of the Chinese communist party?” Student Activist Jinrui added that the China’s state security police advised his father to teach him (Jinrui) to love China and the Communist party and to stop him from taking part in pro-democracy activism activities.

Zhang’s experience comes amid increased concern over Beijing’s “long-arm” law enforcement targeting foreign activists and students who expected to have more freedom of expression and association while living or studying in a democratic country.
