Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström said on Thursday that a Swedish doctor who had been sent to Gui Minhai had been denied permission to meet him on Wednesday.
"The Chinese actions are unacceptable and break previous promises that our citizen would be allowed to meet a Swedish doctor," Wallström said in a statement.
But according to news agency AP, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman rejected the complaint, stating that the Swedish book publisher had requested not to see the doctor.
