    Anhui authorities have detained two activists and former law enforcement officials, after the Washington Post interviewed them in Beijing, reportedly about their experiences with China’s petitioning system. Dangshan City public security officers took one man into custody on October 28. Police later criminally detained him, a former bailiff at a Dangshan court, on suspicion of “creating a disturbance”. Police in Huanan City administratively detained another interviewee for 10 days for “illegal petitioning”.
