Yomiuri reported online that a group of Japanese researchers specializing in Chinese affairs issued a petition on Tuesday asking Chinese authorities to release information on a Hokkaido University Professor who has been detained in China since he visited Beijing in mid-September at the invitation of an influential Chinese think tank. The researchers reportedly demanded the disclosure of the reason for the detention, warning that the prolonged absence of an explanation would have “undesirable effects” on bilateral academic exchanges.
