The Chinese Embassy in Bangladesh said Friday several Chinese workers were illegally detained by their local partners for months amid so-called product quality issues.

According to Embassy officials, the Chinese workers came to Bangladesh for equipment maintenance and installation. The cases were resolved with the help of the embassy, which opened a 24-hour hotline, and released a warning to remind all Chinese citizens in the country to be aware of the local conditions.    

It was the second embassy advisory in a month after six Chinese citizens were robbed in October with 100,000 yuan ($15,178) losses in total.
