Uploaded to one jet ski wearing a life jacket and helmet, using binoculars, a compass and towing five barrels of fuel, a Chinese citizen ventured to cross the Yellow Sea and land in South Korea. It was a trip 14 hours traveling 300 kilometers. He set out from Shandong, a province on China’s east coast, and his jet ski got stuck in mudflats near the South Korean port city of Incheon.

This occurred on August 16. But it was this week when the South Korean coast guard announced that it had detained a Chinese citizen who tried to sneak into the country. “During the trip he refilled gasoline and dumped the empty barrels into the sea. When his jet ski got stuck in the mudflats near the cruise terminal, he demanded ransom,” read a note released Tuesday.

The authorities of the Asian country did not release any identification of the detainee. However, a South Korean activist named Lee Dae-seon claimed that he had been in contact with him and that it was Kwon Pyong, 35 years oldwho already was jailed in China for “mocking” President Xi Jinping.

“In 2016 he was in prison accused of subversion after posting a selfie on his social networks in which he was wearing a t-shirt with phrases about Xi Jinping“Lee told various international media, assuring that he had visited Kwon in the detention center where he is currently located.

“Kwon already told me that he was ready to leave China and head to South Korea, but I didn’t know how he was going to come. He called me on August 16, as soon as he was taken away by the coast guard,” Lee said. who works for the China Dialogue organization, founded by various Chinese dissidents. “It was his fault for violating immigration law, but had no choice than to make a desperate mistake due to the political investigation, the unfair judicial process and the surveillance of the Chinese authorities to which he is subjected,” he said.
