The researcher presented a presentation in Hong Kong last week about the human reassessment experiment, which the Chinese authorities condemned. After that he disappeared.

A spokesman for Shenzhen University where he Jiankui was a former employee told the SCMP: “Right now, no information is correct, only the official channels are.”

“We can not answer any questions about the matter at this time, but if we have any information, we will update it through our official channels.”

Various news in China reports that he has been detained and reverted to Jiankui to Shenzhen, by the university president. 1
