Investors in the now-collapsed Fanya Metals Exchange were detained by police Monday ahead of a planned protest in Beijing outside of the country’s securities regulator that would have coincided with the beginning of a Chinese Communist Party Central Committee meeting, The Financial Times reported.

One investor who did make it, surnamed Pan, said she’d been prevented from buying a train ticket to Beijing from Shanghai. She believed Fanya had supplied the authorities with a list of investors and that many may be under surveillance.
