Human rights activist Ni Yulan and her husband, Dong Jiqin, have been confined to their apartment in Beijing by police and are said to have had no food for three days. Repeated attempts to deliver food to them have failed.
On Thursday,  Nov. 13, 2014, a U.S. diplomat from the American embassy’s political section tried to bring food to the couple.  Two police officers—ID numbers 025475, 023733—denied him entry. The diplomat asked the officers to deliver the food, but they refused.
Dong Jiqin tried to exit the building to meet the diplomat. Five plainclothes police intercepted him and wouldn’t let him go outside.
A Japanese reporter also came  to deliver food to Ni Yulan and her husband. The police wouldn’t let the food in and humiliated the reporter. Ni Yulan told a Boxun reporter that they cursed the Japanese reporter very viciously.
At least two netizens who attempted to deliver food have been detained in the next-door guesthouse.
Dong Jiqin recently was severely beaten at the Xinjiekou police station, suffering a fracture of his 12th vertebrae and much soft tissue damage. After he complained many times and the 110 emergency number didn’t send police, the couple have been placed under house arrest and the police won’t let them leave home.
Boxun has released a recording of the related telephone call.
