Last week Thursday, Feng was not prevented from leaving China due to "national security" reasons which China Foreign Ministry representative Lu Kang refused to comment on. Feng is an Australian citizen and resident but is said to have traveled to China using his Chinese passport.
Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs, however, was not able to do much saying it can only extend assistance to Aussie citizens who are traveling to Australia or any part of the world using their Australian documents including passports.
In an interview with ABC, Feng said that he felt great to finally set foot to Australia again. He described his experience as "less than entertaining." Feng revealed that he was interrogated on a daily basis by Chinese officials. He was reportedly visiting Guangzhou to meet with fellow academics, as well as human rights attorneys.
Feng is an esteemed professor from the University of Technology Sydney and is much respected by his fellows and students. His academic specialty is in human rights research including China's human rights concerns. Feng said that he still wishes to go back to China to finish his job and display professionalism.
