Missing Hong Kong bookseller in China to answer 2004 conviction: state mediaA Swedish bookseller whose mysterious disappearance sparked fears he may have been abducted by Chinese agents said he had voluntarily turned himself in to the authorities over a fatal drink-driving offence more than a decade ago.Gui, a naturalized Swedish citizen, is one of five members to have gone missing from a Hong Kong bookstore that specializes in gossipy political books on China's Communist Party leaders.The disappearances, and China's silence, have prompted fears that mainland Chinese authorities may be using shadowy tactics that erode the "one country, two systems" formula under which Hong Kong has been governed since its return to China from British rule in 1997 .Gui fled China in 2006 after he was given a suspended 2-year jail term for killing a female student in the coastal city of Ningbo while driving drunk, the report said.In a statement late on Monday, the Hong Kong government said it received a notice from authorities in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong acknowledging that Lee is in mainland China.
