Later, because Wang Yu wanted to go out to buy vegetables, the police at the police station refused to let Wang Yu leave. A quarrel broke out between the two sides, and it almost turned into a bloody conflict.   Wang Yu said: " The unidentified person who came to my house not only illegally restricted us from going out, but also teased Bao Longjun with extremely ugly words, which made Bao Longjun angry. He brought a kitchen knife from the kitchen and wanted to fight him desperately. The opponent was 8 strong . If Bao Longjun, a strong man, goes out, he will definitely be beaten, and he will be bitten back and arrested. Fortunately, my mother stopped Bao Longjun later, avoiding a bloody incident. "   Wang Yu said that the people who came claimed to be police officers, but they did not wear police uniforms, did not show their IDs, and did not explain why they were not allowed to go out. But Wang Yu believes that the reason for the restricted freedom of travel may be related to Bell Burke's visit to China.

Xu Yan said in a video posted on Twitter: " Is it illegal to meet officials from the European Union, Germany, France? Is this not allowed under Chinese law? "   Xu Yan also said in another video: " (On the car) Lawyer Yu Wensheng and Xu Yan. Now we are going to take us to Bajiao, and it is very likely that we will be taken to Bajiao police station. He said to summon us verbally, (We) didn’t come up in the subway, (they) forced us to come up. ”      Recently, China has significantly increased its efforts to develop relations with Europe, trying to cope with the competition between the United States and China. However, the outside world generally believes that the issue of human rights is still an unavoidable issue in EU-China relations. It is reported that Bell Burke will also meet Wang Yi, China's top foreign policy official, and Chinese Vice President Han Zheng during the trip.
