Man Says Wife Arrested in China Interrogated Daily

The husband of an American businesswoman arrested in China on claims she spied and stole state secrets said she's being held in solitary confinement and is interrogated at least once a day.

Jeff Gillis said in a statement that his 55-year-old wife, Phan Phan-Gillis, met Wednesday with an American consulate official.

He said her health has stabilized after suffering from ailments since she was taken into custody in March while traveling with a trade delegation from her hometown of Houston.

Gillis said his wife is not allowed to speak with lawyers about the accusations against her. She has not been charged.

Phan-Gillis was detained for months before being formally arrested last weekend.

She said in comments relayed to her husband that her case is a political one, not criminal.
