The son of a Canadian couple detained in China on suspicion they stole state secrets said Wednesday that the couple is safe but under constant guard. According to messages they passed on via the Canadian embassy, Kevin and Julia Garratt were detained on Monday. Peter Garratt told press, “A Canadian representative has met with both my mother and father for 30 minutes each and they passed on messages saying they are safe and eating well and have a nice place to stay, although they are under constant guard.” Peter Garratt said Chinese authorities who met with him would not tell him where his parents were being held, but that the facility was somewhere in or around Dandong. The Garratts opened a cafe called Peter’s Coffee House in Dandong, located the Chinese border with North Korea, in 2008.
