Man says wife who was arrested in China interrogated daily

DALLAS (AP) -- The husband of an American businesswoman arrested in China on claims she spied and stole state secrets says 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 says 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 says 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.
