HONG KONG, Aug 24: A British consulate employee detained in China has returned to Hong Kong, his family said on Saturday, ending a two-week ordeal during which Beijing's state media smeared him with lurid allegations.
Simon Cheng disappeared after visiting the neighbouring city of Shenzhen on August 8 and was placed in administrative detention by police, unable to contact his family or his British employers.
He was returning to Hong Kong on a high-speed train and sent messages to his girlfriend as he was about to go through customs, shortly before he was stopped by Chinese authorities.    -AFP
