she would not keep quiet in exchange for various conditions and the Western media is backing her stand. The Swedish Mi
nistry of Foreign Affairs said it already launched an internal investigation into Lindstedt, who had been appointed for an
other position in the Swedish government in March. Lindstedt has now been recalled to her country.
Is Angela Gui telling the truth? The Chinese Embassy in Sweden has responded that China has never and will never authorize
anyone to be in contact with her. China handled Gui’s case in accordance with the law and legal p
rocedures. People need to be aware of Angela’s unique position as Gui Minhai’s daughter; and, considering her lack of ex
perience in distinguishing complex issues, it is necessary for people to be cautious about her story.
However, the role of Ambassador Lindstedt is also part of this. If she did arrange a meeting between Angela Gui a
nd the Chinese businessmen not authorized by Beijing, then we can make the following analysis.
First, there are domestic groups in Sweden that hope the relationship between Sweden and China will not be a
ffected by Gui’s incident in the long term. They are willing to facilitate public discussions between Stockholm and B
eijing on this matter. Ambassador Lindstedt herself is a representative of such groups.
