Chinese journalist disappears.
On Friday, after not hearing from Chen since the previous day, his mother uploaded a video online explaining that her son had disappeared. "I'm here to beg everyone online, especially friends in Wuhan to help find Qiushi – find out what's going on with him," she pleaded.
It is believed that Chen was quarantined by the police. However, he did not exhibit any symptoms of the virus.
If these allegations are true, then it would not be the first time Chen has been silenced by the government.
In August, he reported on the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, but according to Chen himself, after he reported that the protestors were mostly peaceful and not rioters, the Chinese government recalled him, repeatedly questioned him and deleting his social media accounts.
How close are we to China silencing of anyone who speaks against the Govt?
