Public Miffed After Doctor Detained for Calling ‘Medicinal’ Liquor ‘Poison’
Authorities in Inner Mongolia have released a doctor who called a well-known “medicinal” liquor a “poison,” after news of his three months in detention provoked national anger over the handling of the case.
Police in the Inner Mongolia autonomous region confirmed (link in Chinese) on Sunday that Guangdong province-based doctor Tan Qingdong had been detained for nearly 100 days on suspicion of damaging the reputation of Hongmao Medicinal Liquor, which is sold across the country as an over-the-counter traditional Chinese medicine.
