Ai Weiwei’s sister recounts some of the conditions of the artist’s detention by the Chinese authorities:
“They stared at him without ever moving their eyes,” she said, adding that they stood close by even while he used the toilet. “And when he took a shower, they just stood right next to him, even though they were getting totally wet.”
That’s some hard core intimidation. Of course I’d be tempted, given the proximity to “accidentally” pee on the guards in that case … of course I’d probably have died under that kind of detention.
