874. Reference Department’s mail instruction No. 199, August 6 [4], 1930.28

Wong Bock Yue, who was released shortly after the turnover of Peiping, called at the Legation today to thank the Legation for its efforts in his behalf. He has promised to give the Legation a detailed account of his arrest, imprisonment, and release which will be forwarded to the Department by mail when received.28
He stated that his arrest and imprisonment were for editorials written by him displeasing to the Left Wing; that he was never brought to trial and was never given an opportunity to procure evidence to rebut the charges brought against him. He was, however, well treated.
