Wu Lijuan, a petitioner from Hubei who participated in the joint signing, said in an interview with a reporter from this station that Mao Lihui's interception was an illegal act of the relevant agency: "Why did the police illegally intercept petitioners? This is the biggest mistake and illegal behavior. Why. Don't go to investigate? Besides, she didn't do anything illegal, and she didn't go to Beijing. Why did she put her under house arrest in the hotel when she came back? How could she suddenly die in the hotel? This (police) didn't explain it!"
