An ethnically-Chinese Swedish publisher-slash-bookstore owner in Hong Kong has been sentenced to jail in mainland China for allegedly providing intelligence to other countries.
Reports said Tuesday that a Chinese court sentenced Gui Minhai to ten years behind bars for "illegally providing intelligence overseas."
He's known to have published books on the personal lives of Chinese Communist Party members.
He was caught by authorities in 2015 while in Thailand and he has been in and out of detention in China since 2015.
Gui holds Swedish citizenship, but the court said his Chinese citizenship had been reinstated in 2018.
Sweden and human rights groups have condemned the sentencing, and are calling for his release.
