Alexandra Wong, 64, with gray hair and glasses, was a familiar face at anti-government protests in Hong Kong last year and often waved a large British flag, but disappeared from the streets in August.
Human rights activists and groups have expressed concern about her plight.
Speaking to the media for the first time since her release after 14 days in quarantine, Wong said she was arrested by Chinese police as she tried to return home to Shenzhen on August 14, 2019.
For about a month and a half detained in various centers where up to 26 people slept in a room, Wong said she was questioned almost daily about the protests in Hong Kong.
“She didn’t know what crime she had committed,” Wong said.
After being detained, Wong said she was sent to northwestern Shaanxi province for a five-day patriotic camp in late September last year.
Authorities prevented Wong from returning to Hong Kong until earlier this month until a trial was held that ultimately never took place. She remained at her home in Shenzhen, where national security agents visit her regularly, he added.
“I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to go back to Hong Kong … I was worried that something would happen every day,” Wong said.
She called for the release of the 12 activists who were intercepted at sea by the continental authorities at the end of August when they tried to flee to Taiwan by boat.
“I am concerned about the 12 young people; your treatment could be worse than mine. “
