Tan Qin­dong, a for­mer doc­tor and now head of a med­i­cal tech­nol­ogy com­pany in Guang­dong Prov­ince, was re­cently ar­rested by po­lice in the In­ner Mon­go­lia Au­ton­o­mous Re­gion af­ter he re­vealed on­line that a lo­cally pro­duced and pop­u­lar Chi­nese medic­i­nal tonic was ex­ag­ger­at­ing its ef­fect and could ac­tu­ally be harm­ful to se­niors, its core cus­tomers. The po­lice charged Tan with “dam­ag­ing a brand's rep­u­ta­tion,” while Tan's lawyer ar­gued that he should not be con­victed un­til a court can prove that his be­hav­ior has caused se­ri­ous con­se­quences for the plain­tiff. Many ne­ti­zens won­dered how po­lice could de­tain Tan be­fore a court has made a judg­ment, and pointed the fin­ger at abuse of power. Many peo­ple ap­pealed for higher au­thor­i­ties to in­ves­ti­gate whether there was any cor­rup­tion in­volved in Tan's treat­ment.
